More twists and turns than the curviest back road you can image! What happened to Sarah Cook? That’s what PI Roxane Weary is charged with finding out.
Sarah disappeared fifteen years ago, the same night her parents were brutally murdered, and she hasn’t been seen since. Her boyfriend Brad Stockton was convicted of the murders and is now on death row with his execution only weeks away. Brad’s sister insists she saw Sarah at an area gas station and enlists Roxane’s help. Roxane isn’t in the best place to begin a new case because she’s still reeling from the death of her cop father. But Roxane finds herself drawn to Sarah’s story, especially when she links the disappearance to one of her father’s unsolved murder cases involving another teen girl.
It looks like The Last Place You Look is the first book in a new series featuring PI Roxane Weary. This first look has left me waiting with much anticipation for what’s next for Roxane. Not only personally but professionally. I liked Roxane and found her to be a believable character. I enjoyed the deeper look at her personal life as she tried to save the lives of others.
This was one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a while, I was hooked from the opening line! The killer was indeed in the last place this reader looked. And that ladies and gentleman is what makes a great thriller – not being able to guess who did it. This book was action packed from the beginning. Fans of a great mystery will not be disappointed in this one!
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.
