Libby can't believe her and her husband, Jamie's, good fortune in exchanging their tiny city flat for a beautiful haven on the English coast. But she can't hide... But before they can begin to relax and work to heal their fragile marriage, Libby makes some disturbing discoveries about the house. The peace and isolation of the getaway begin to feel threatening. How alone are they? Why does she feel like someone is watching them? Because someone knows her secret... When it appears that even Jamie is hiding something from her, Libby's paranoia gets the best of her. It should. For she has buried secrets of her own. As the past comes crawling out of the darkness, Libby fears she's walked into an elaborate trap. But who has set it? What do they want of her? And how far is she willing to go to keep her past deeds hidden? A deeply atmospheric and utterly addictive thriller that examines how far one woman will go to out run her former life, Last Seen Alive will keep readers guessing right up to its shocking conclusion"--Dust jacket.
