The Last Place You Look

 The Last Place You Look

Author: Kristen Lepionka

Publisher: Minotaur Books

Year: 2017

This book was on my Goodreads TBR list for awhile before I found it at the library. 

15 years ago Sarah, a beautiful teenage girl, disappeared the night her parents were brutally murdered.  Her boyfriend Brad, a young Black man, was tried and convicted for the murder of Sarah’s parents and now he sits on death row hoping for a miracle. When Brad’s sister thinks she sees Sarah out in public, she hires private investigator Roxane Weary to track down the girl and exonerate Brad. 

Roxane is still reeling from the death of her father, a cop. The case draws her in when she thinks she links Sarah’s disappearance to one of her father’s old unsolved cases. Roxane races the clock to save Brad from death row and butts heads with a local police department before another girl disappears. 

This is the first book in Kristen Lepionka’s PI Roxane Weary series. It had been on my TBR list for awhile until I finally discovered the library had it. I think it’s a good start to the series. (The fourth book in the series published last July.) Roxane is a complex, self-destructive character with dogged determination to find answers. It will be interesting to see how her character develops and if she can overcome, or at least tame some of her personal demons in the later books.
