The Last Thing I Told You: A Novel
What seems like such a simple case of homicide turns out to be more tricky than assumed. At least for Detective Henry Peacher, that is. Dr. Mark Fabian, a local therapist, is found bludgeoned to death in his office. Who was the last person to see Dr. Fabian alive? Did he have any disgruntled patients? And why were the files of Nadine Raines and Johnny Streeter pulled? The Last Thing I Told You alternates points of views between Detective Peacher and Nadine. As Peacher starts to unravel the case and interview patients and co-workers of the deceased, Nadine tells the reader her twisted story about her love affair with killer Johnny Streeter.
I enjoyed following the detective through his investigation. He was diligent yet not overbearing or hot-headed as so many detectives in novels are. The narrative given to the reader by Nadine was much less interesting and I found myself wondering why I needed to know such detail about this character. It was obvious throughout the book whom the author wanted the reader to think the killer was, but at the end, she gave us a twist that was a bit surprising but made sense to the whole story. A good read, but one that isn’t going to knock your socks off.
