A “gripping” (Entertainment Weekly) mystery about a woman who thinks she’s found the love of her life—until he disappears.

Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.

With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.

    Not sure what to like about this book. A few times I almost just stopped reading it. What a disappointment. The ending …….so predictable.
  • Very linear and predictable

    While the ending is wholesome, the plot itself is very plain and lacking . The twist is probably the most underwhelming one I’ve ever read in a book . I think the author wanted emotional payoff more than the actual shocking plot point . Disappointed!

    Short and easy read only 200 pages. Very predictable ending and the plot is very one- noted. I regret reading this book.

    This is such an enjoyable read. It’s nothing crazy but it kept me hooked and interested from page one which has not been happening easily lately. Would def recommend!
