The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka. Published by St. Martins

I knew I was going to love this book right from the first paragraph when protagonist, PI Roxane Weary answers the phone from the carpet underneath her desk. Roxane hasn’t been coping well since her father’s death and has been using alcohol to drown her feelings of loss, anger and ambiguity. But now she has a client, and she needs the money, so Roxane takes a case trying to save a man two months away from his date with the Needle. Brad Stockton’s sister is sure her brother is innocent. Convicted of murdering his girlfriends parents after the murder weapon was found in his vehicle, there seems little doubt of his guilt. But his sister claims to have recently seen Brad’s girlfriend, Sarah Cook alive and well. Police had always contended that Brad had murdered her and dumped her body somewhere. But if she’s really alive, why hasn’t she come forward? Finding links to some of her police officer father’s last cases, Roxane finds herself in over her head, but like her father, she’s not about to quit. As more missing girls are connected to the case, she digs deeper into the small town’s past. angering the wrong people and putting her own life in jeopardy. Please, please tell me that Roxane will return in another book. This one was so good, I didn’t want it to end, and I’m still thinking about it days later
