Last Girl Gone by J.G. Hetherton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Once a bright star of the Boston Globe, Laura is now back in her hometown. Her traumatic past has brought her to the “couch” of the small town’s only therapist. Driven by her work as a newspaper writer, she begins to involve her therapist in the missing girls’ case. As she digs deeper into the findings, unknowingly Laura brings the danger closer to the people she loves and cares about.
Last Girl Gone is told from the journalist’s perspective, which is a change from all the detective novels I’ve been accustomed to. Laura’s character is bold and fearless. Although I was a bit confused about why out of hundreds of towns/cities in the US, she choose to go back to the town she was so eager to get out of. Anyway, I am glad she did, otherwise, the cold case mystery would have never been solved. Nevertheless, this is a busy, yet fast-paced read, with many shocking details and twists. This novel screams – trust no one! If you love reading thrillers, mysteries, or psychological thrillers then I highly recommend you read this book.
