The Last Victim: A Novel
by Elaine Bossik
Sophie Rothman is a Jewish-American woman living in Brooklyn. She has a husband. She has a home. She has a family.
But Sophie has a twisted obsession — hoarding money. And her obsession drives her husband, Harry, away for long periods.
Sophie's loneliness during Harry's absence leads her into a secret affair and an unwanted pregnancy. She begs Harry to return and then deceives him into believing the child she's carrying is his.
Sophie soon gives birth to Jeanie, and the fate of the child hinges on Sophie's secret.
Find out what happens to Jeanie. Get The Last Victim.
"The Last Victim is a choice read... very much recommended."

While writing The Last Victim, Elaine Bossik often felt like she was watching an enthralling play.
