Woman Last Seen

Harlequin Audio. Feb. 2022. 11:37 hrs. ISBN 9781488213342. $26.99. SUSPENSE
British author Parks (Just My Luck) doesn’t disappoint with her latest, which centers on two women from very different backgrounds who are reported missing by their husbands around the same time. Detective Clements takes on both cases and feels that they are somehow related. However, it’s hard to make a case when there aren’t any bodies to examine or evidence of a crime. Each woman could have simply walked away from her life, so it’s up to Clements to find out more. Unbeknown to her, there is also a woman who has been abducted and is being held against her will in an isolated, locked room. The characters, storyline, and family dynamics are all believable and ultimately lead to a climactic and realistic ending.
VERDICT Although the novel has a slow-burn start, listeners get to hear the investigation unfold through multiple voices and perspectives as the story flashes back to the time before the women went missing, which adds to the suspense of this unique missing-person mystery.
