Enhance your purchase
Up-and-coming attorney Leigh Larson fights for victims of sexual extortion, harassment, and online abuse. She is not afraid to go after the sleaziest targets to get payback for her clients. Leigh is laser-focused on her career—to the exclusion of everything else—until a seemingly routine case and a determined cop turn her world upside down.
Austin homicide detective Brandon Reynolds is no stranger to midnight callouts. But when he gets summoned to an abandoned car on a desolate road, he quickly realizes he's dealing with an unusual crime scene. A pool of blood in the nearby woods suggests a brutal homicide. But where is the victim? The vehicle is registered to twenty-six-year-old Vanessa Adams. Searching the car, all Brandon finds is a smear of blood and a business card for Leigh Larson, attorney-at-law.
Vanessa had hired Leigh just before her disappearance, but Leigh has no leads on who could have wanted her dead. Faced with bewildering evidence and shocking twists, Leigh and Brandon must work against the clock to chase down a ruthless criminal who is out for vengeance.

In Last Seen Alone, the story revolves around a young woman's disappearance that has Auston PD homicide detective Brandon Reynolds investigating a possible murder but without a body, he is fighting an uphill battle.
Defense attorney Leigh Larson is the one person that might have some answers but because of her relationship with the young woman gets mired in the investigation to the point of making herself a target.
This story is intense with the real-world issues faced today by many women of stalking and revenge when relationships fail.
I truly enjoyed this book and the characters and can't wait for more of Laura's stories!
The book starts with a bang with the disappearance of Vanessa. She meets with someone and is given something in a bag in exchange for money. She stops on the side of the road to check her bag but gets out of her car and runs when she sees a car stop behind her. She is chased into the woods by someone. Her fear is intense.
When Detective Brandon Reynolds is called to investigate an abandoned vehicle, he and his partner discover Vanessa has vanished. Her purse, phone and keys are all left in the car. There is blood on the car door and they find more blood in the woods. They aren't sure if this is a missing person case or a murder case. The only clue left behind is a business card for an attorney named Leigh Larson. Brandon and his partner track her down on her way to court. Detective Reynolds and Leigh don’t start off on the right foot. She is in a hurry for court and he wants answers now. Of course Leigh doesn’t tell him anything. She vaguely remembers Vanessa coming to see her once, but suspects Vanessa didn’t tell her the full story. Leigh deals with women who have been victims of revenge porn and sexual harassment. She has her own reasons for seeking justice for her clients and wants to find Vanessa.
Brandon and Leigh are constantly being thrown together with this case. For every step forward that Brandon makes, Leigh seems to be involved in some way. The mystery involving Vanessa and the give and take between Brandon and Leigh make this a great read. Ms. Griffin has once again told a story that involves real life situations. Her attention to detail makes this an extremely intense story.
Last Seen Alone is a fantastic book. The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Vanessa was page turning. I was up way too late in the night finishing this book. The characters are believable and the suspense is engaging. The supporting characters were just as interesting as the main characters and I hope they their own story.
Ms. Griffin is on my auto-buy list, and I eagerly look forward to each new book. I have read all of her books and thoroughly enjoyed each one. She writes fantastic characters, unbelievable suspense and creates a world I can become immersed in. I highly recommend this new book.
Her third in the Texas crime mysteries was another great read.
