Point Last Seen
by Dodd, Christina

"When Adam Ramsdell pulls Elle's half-frozen body from the surf on a lonely California beach, she has no memory of what her full name is and how she got those bruises ringing her throat. Elle finds refuge in Adam's home on the edge of Gothic, a remote village located between the steep lonely mountains and the raging Pacific Ocean. As flashes of her memory return, Elle faces a terrible truth-buried in her mind lurks a secret so dark it could get her killed. Everyone in Gothic seems to hide a dark past. Even Adam knows more than he will admit. Until Elle can unravel the truth, she doesn't know who to trust, when to run, and who else might be hurt when the killer who stalks her nightmares appears to finish what he started..."-

*Starred Review* Adam Ramsdell has retrieved a number of different things from the Pacific Ocean, but this is the first time he finds himself dragging a woman's dead body out of the water. However, it quickly turns out that the woman in question only seems to be dead. Once revived, she has absolutely no memory of anything except that her first name might be Elle, and she is certain someone tried to kill her. When it comes to nerve-shredding, edge-of-your-seat suspense, Dodd (Wrong Alibi, 2020) consistently delivers the goods, and her latest, the first in a new series set in the small Northern California beach town of Gothic, is no exception. Graced with a gutsy yet realistically vulnerable heroine and a hero with a tortured past, it is also enhanced with a cast of ingeniously quirky supporting characters that includes a Hollywood psychiatrist turned psychic and a lifestyle doyenne who could give Martha Stewart lessons in branding. Punctuated with delicious bursts of Dodd's diabolical wit, Point Last Seen is a gobsmackingly great read. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
