The Last to Disappear by Jo Spain

A huge thank you to Milly for my copy of this absolute gem.

Publishing May 12th.

A luxury resort. Three missing women. One body.

When young London professional Alex Evans is informed that his sister’s body has been pulled from an icy lake in Northern Lapland, he assumes his irresponsible sister accidentally drowned. He travels to the wealthy winter resort where Vicky worked as a tour-guide and meets Agatha Koskinen, the detective in charge. Agatha is a no-nonsense single mother of three who already thinks there’s more to Vicky’s case than meets the eye.

As the two form an unlikely alliance, Alex also begins to suspect the small town where his sister lived and died is harbouring secrets. It’s not long before he learns that three other women have gone missing from the area in the past and that his sister may have left him a message.

On the surface, Koppe, Lapland is a winter wonderland. But in this remote, frozen place, death seems only ever a heartbeat away.

My Bookish Thoughts

This is one of those books that will capture your attention and keep you hostage until the very last page. This is well-written, completely addictive and fast paced.

Imagine my shock, reading this and one of the women has the same name as my childhood best friend. Definitely made this an interesting read. Alex has been an interesting character, I wish we could’ve developed the relationship between hun and his sister more.

This is definitely a book filled with twists and turns. I have been completely unable to work out where this was going. It has surprised me at every turn.

This is a chilling and atmospheric book. The cold and icy setting really adds an extra element to this book. The relationship between characters is often strained with emotions running high.

I’ve read a number of Jo Spain books, this is definitely high on the favourites list. I have devoured page after page in just one sitting. This is definitely one for the TBR.
