The Last Girl to Die is a chilling thriller set in a small town in Scotland.
When sixteen-year-old Adriana Clark goes missing, her family hires a private investigator from Canada named Sadie Levesque to search for her.
In a matter of days, Sadie discovers Adriana’s brutally murdered body in a dark cave. The more Sadie investigates, the more hostility she feels and the sense that everyone is hiding something, including the police and the family that hired her.
Review of The Last Girl to Die
This atmospheric thriller primarily follows Sadie’s pov. The author seamlessly weaved Scotland’s ritualistic/spiritual history into this contemporary narrative.
A word of warning that there are very graphic and gruesome descriptions early on. It almost put me off, but I decided to push through, and it wasn’t so bad after that.
The writing was good, and I enjoyed Sadie’s characterization, even though she made a few hasty decisions.
And that ending! It wasn’t what I was expecting, but should have guessed was coming. And it did fit with the rest of the story. I will certainly read more from the author. I recommend it if you can stomach the initial graphic descriptions.
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
