Imagine your favorite teachers from high school are dying, being mysteriously murdered one by one soon after the arrival of the new English instructor... 

Mackenzie August is starting a new life. After a successful but destructive career as a high-profile California homicide detective, and then a less successful and even more destructive stint working for a church, he has moved to Virginia to start over as an instructor. The only thing he's bringing with him is Kix, his infant baby boy. He plans for peaceful living with his son, but trouble soon finds him as his new co-workers begin showing up dead outside of his classroom.

The Last TeacherDarned good story! I’m usually pretty fast to determine the killer in mystery books, but this story kept me guessing until the end. I really like the hero who uses his training as a LA homicide detective to solve the murders of his fellow middle school teachers. His struggle with his need to improve his lifestyle for his baby son’s sake is impressive. I look forward to reading more in this series..Score: 5/5

First time to read this author. Will NOT be my last!Mr Lee’s writing style is unlike any I’ve read before. I loved it! The plot was great & in the midst of all that would be going on at any given time, I would laugh out loud at the things “Mack” would say…or think. Absolutely hilarious…& clever. I will definitely be following this author. Kat V.Score: 5/5

Very well doneThis book is quite funny. Imagine Spencer as a dad and middle school teacher (and former cop). The humor is similar and the mystery equally fast paced. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found myself reading sections aloud just to crack myself up..Score: 5/5

Psychological murder mysteryThis has a fascinating main character, a thirty something, former football star, California highway patrolman/detective with a teaching license for English teaching in a Middle school in Virginia. Adventures follow, he also has a young son, 6 months or so of age. That is another story I will let you discover as you read the book! Quite enjoyable opening novel!.Score: 5/5

NoIf you want to read the worst dialogue of your life, go ahead and read this. The main guy calls himself handsome and a woman doesn’t immediately agree so he says she must be blind. Then he makes a joke and two women don’t laugh. He says they must be deaf..Score: 1/5

Very goodLikable main character, masculine w/out overdoing the personality, and not heading for the gutter with explicit scenes. Like how the character is growing and maturing rather than being a skirt chaser with no values. Very different and uplifting storyline of his woundedness. Really like how the witty humor keeps it from getting self destructive or heading down the typical path of main characters. Like the journey this character seems to be on, it’s real without getting too raw. Terrific humor from various characters..Score: 5/5

The trick workedI found this book on Book Bub- super cheap, and the preview was promising. Book Bub offers books cheaply to introduce new or underappreciated writers. It's a bit outta a lottery- the last 3 books I tried were real clunkers. I don't think I finished 2 of them. But this one is exceptional. Good writing, good plotting, good pace, and an intriguing protagonist. Kind of Onion Magna- lots of layers. Frankly, I was very surprised to learn in the authors notes that this is a first book. Very surprised. So the trick worked; I will definitely track down further Mackenzie and Kix August books..Score: 4/5

The Last TeacherI enjoyed Mack August and his humour. My only complaint would be that there were quite a few spelling errors, and I just find it annoying. Especially since the main character is supposed to be an English Teacher. It makes me want to break out a red pen and start circling, and I’m NOT a teacher!.Score: 3/5

FascinatingAs I indulged into the mind of this self delusional STAR of the screen (book) , I became accustomed to his personality. Had me laughing at his “I deserve a pat on the back for how good looking I am and the funny too” attitude. I kinda liked the way his ego worked in this short punned crime with a bit of spiritual character. You can take a bow now. Well done. (clap, clap).Score: 5/5

A generous 3*...... because I don’t think that I’m the target reader. As an older and British female reader there was very little that I could relate to in this book. I think, on reflection, that perhaps there was a decent enough story in there but what an effort it was to get through it! I really, really wish that I’d counted the number of times the ‘hero’ told everyone, anyone how wonderful and/or how good looking he is. This was the main thing that made the character totally unlikeable to me. I’m glad it’s over..Score: 3/5

A great bedtime readI say a great bedtime read because it’s easy to follow and an ‘easy-to-read’ page turner so lends itself to being a pre- nighttime sleep story. Even though the concept is well established and the plot clear and well told, it’s a complex enough story revealed to the reader in a tongue-in-cheek, almost conversational dialogue with enough diversionary plot themes to hold your interest to the end. I kind of feel bad for saying this is only ‘good’ and not ‘brilliant’, because I can’t define what it is that it lacks in order for it to be highly recommended and generously exaggerated about. It was a darn good story and a satisfying read It’s fast paced enough to be gripping, and his easy style of writing - once you get used to his particular delivery - is also one of the reasons it is so easy to read and quickly becomes a page turner which I found increasingly hard to put down Although the plot was fairly predictable, it wasn’t overtly so, so when the reader is obviously being led down a well-laid path, you have been thrown enough clues to realise the perpetrator had to have IT skills and so clearly can’t be the character you’re constantly finessed into believing it is. You find yourself completely empathising with the main character even though he’s described from the start as a typical cad. Maybe reformed, but still an arrogant, even though lovable, rogue with just enough charm, cheeky grins and dry wit to balance the conceit. And on a completely unrelated side note as I’m guessing this was not the author’s main motive, I like the way he deals with emotive topics and issues - namely religion - in a light hearted and good humoured way, without ever coming across as glib or flippant. I ultimately found this hard to put down, and since the story is well laid out and cuts a (well, fairly...) believable line between heroic escapism and real life likelihood, it should be a book that’ll keep your interest and you’ll want to continue to the next page, rather than putting down for the night.Score: 5/5

Loved itI was absolutely recommended to read this book and I’m not much of a reader, I most liked the Wittiness of Mack and the sarcasm, before I finished the story I thought it was written by a woman so I was shocked to see it was not, the only thing that was confusing was all the names of the teachers and who as who..Score: 5/5
