The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

Title: The Last Place you Look (Roxane Weary, #1)

Rating: 4-Stars

Summary on Goodreads.

"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..." [+ more]

I liked it very much because the ending was different. This is pretty much your regular crime/mystery plot where the culprit turns out to be the one you least expect. Darn it, I like that.

It was an easy read and I finished it in one day. I liked the ending because the story didn't end with the killer dead - being killed by the cops or other force of nature. No, he is alive and he is going to get what's coming to him.

This seems to be a thriller series headed by Roxane,  a private investigator who took the case of finding a missing person and ended up solving a murder mystery. I didn't know that this book was the beginning of a series because, as always, publishers would not indicate son on the cover. I just found out after reading the book and heading over Goodreads to write a review.

Anyways, I will definitely read more books by Lepionka about Roxane.
