Last Seen Alive by Joanna Schaffhausen

WOW!!  Heart pounding!!

Ellery, Reed, and Coben are together again and not for anything good.

Ellery is the only victim of serial killer Francis Coben who survived because Reed found her locked in a closet on the Coben family's farm.

Ellery was 14 when Coben abducted and tortured her, and she was not his first victim. 

Coben has been in prison for 17 years, but when a similar-style murder is discovered while he is in prison, someone else must have been in touch with Coben, but who could that be?

Ellery and Reed meet with Coben in prison because he said he would tell where one of his victims is if Ellery visits him.

Ellery reluctantly agrees, and it doesn't go well. Coben wants her since he couldn’t finish what he started all those years ago.

We follow Ellery and Reed as they reconnect and as they work together to find another victim's body so the family has closure.

During their search something major happens elsewhere.

You will be glued to the pages and thinking about the book even when you aren’t reading it.

Tense, tense, tense and excellent as all of Joanna’s books.

Fans don’t want to miss this one.

This book was given to me by publisher in exchange for an honest review.
