Sarah Cook, a beautiful blonde teenager disappeared fifteen years ago, the same night her parents were brutally murdered in their suburban Ohio home. Her boyfriend Brad Stockton - black and from the wrong side of the tracks - was convicted of the murders and sits on death row, though he always maintained his innocence. With his execution only weeks away, his devoted sister, insisting she has spotted Sarah at a local gas station, hires PI Roxane Weary to look again at the case.
Reeling from the
recent death of her cop father, Roxane finds herself drawn to the story
of Sarah's vanishing act, especially when she thinks she's linked
Sarah's disappearance to one of her father's unsolved murder cases
involving another teen girl. Despite her self-destructive tendencies,
Roxane starts to hope that maybe she can save Brad's life and her own.
With echoes of Sue Grafton, Dennis Lehane and the hit podcast Serial,
The Last Place You Look
is the gripping debut of both a bold new voice and character. @goodreads
This is one of those books where you want the answers now!
have an idea of some things that were going on when some other certain
things started to happen. Don't you just love my meanderings =)
is a PI and she's hired by Danielle who is the sister of a man on death
row, Brad Stockton. Supposedly, 15 years-ago he killed his girlfriends
parents and the said girlfriend, Sarah Cook, disappeared. No one knows
what happened to her. But there was some evidence against Brad that
sealed his deal. He was just a young kid and had no idea what was going
Roxane's father was a cop and he had died recently. She was
still getting over this and would spend some time with her mom and
brothers from time to time. It was kinda funny when they were all
together. Made me think of family times with my grandparents.
Roxane goes through some of her dads old case files and she finds some
stuff on Brad and Sarah. She also finds some other things that are very
curious, very curious indeed. There are other things that are linked to
people. Geez, I want to tell y'all some stuff so bad but I can't, I want
you to read them yourself.
This book has a great story line, a
sadistic person that is off their nut, drinking, slight sexual
situations with a guy and girl that are both cared for (not at the same
time!), and just a really sad story all around when it comes to the end
and everything is revealed.
I enjoyed it and I think other mystery peeps will too =)
