Last Place You Look – Louisa Scarr


The man you love has been murdered. You’d do anything to find out the truth. Wouldn’t you?

A man lies dead in a hotel room, and the police attend his home address to inform the widow. Nothing unusual, until DC Freya West realises that the victim is the man she has been having an affair with. The future she imagined has been snatched away.

Meanwhile, her new boss, DS Robin Butler, is preoccupied with his own problems. Mistakes he thought were buried deep in his past now threaten to be exposed. Before long, both Butler and West are keeping secrets that could end their careers – and worse.

When the detectives have a chance to tell the truth, they choose to keep quiet. But once that line is crossed, is there any going back? After all, breaking the law is easy when you know how to uphold it.


I read this book in one day and thoroughly enjoyed it. It had a good pace and a nice amount of twists and revelations to uncover, some I guessed but some I didn’t.

I found the characters extremely likeable (despite their serious red flags) and found it easy to follow and connect with the story.

I understand that it’s the first in a series but I still didn’t enjoy the loose end that wasn’t tied up. I will however read the read of the series!
