The daughter of a cop who was killed in the line of duty, Roxane Weary is a private investigator who works too little and drinks too much, but doesn’t let her personal demons get in the way of doing her job in Kristen Lepionka’s thrilling mystery series.
“Lepionka reboots the thriller genre with her troubled hero, Roxane Weary, a private eye with little concern for her own safety (or the gender of her shifting sexual partners.) The Last Place You Look riffs off Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane but finds a way to make detective fiction relevant again.”—James Renner, author of True Crime Addict
