Happy belated release!
A big thanks to the author for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.
THE LAST FRIEND by Harvey Church (released October 16th, 2017)
A great abduction, psychological thriller for fall!
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
I received this copy to my door one day and I was instantly intrigued by the minimal synopsis. I think that more books need to take this approach because it gives the reader just enough to pique their interest. THE LAST FRIEND by Harvey Church was a page-turner and I had to know what would happen!
Fifteen years ago, Donovan’s daughter was abducted. Today, Monica Russell shows up on his doorstep and claims to have known his daughter while in captivity. This revelation rocks his world. Monica says to have a mountain of information about his daughter – where her remains are and most importantly, who the man is that took her away from him, assaulted her and ultimately killed her. But Monica isn’t willing to give up this information for free. To what length and price is Donovan willing to go to in order get the closure he’s wanted?
This book was a fast read! What would you do if someone came to your house almost two decades after your child disappeared and claimed they had information? It brings up the question of, is not knowing better? Then again, curiosity always seems to get the best of people in these types of situations. I don’t want to give away too much more of the story – these kinds of thrillers deserve to be gone into with less information. Harvey Church did a great job weaving this story and bringing everything together. Donovan is just a desperate and heartbroken man – he feels very real to the reader.
Overall, if you like psychological thrillers, then this will be right up your alley! What would you do if the person who claimed to be your child’s last friend came to your door?
