Summary: From the internationally bestselling author of the “utterly compelling and intriguing” (Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver) Still Mine and Still Water comes a new stand alone psychological thriller featuring PI Clare O’Dey, who’s on the hunt for two missing persons but who may be hunted herself.
Malcolm is gone. Disappeared. And no one knows where or why.
His colleague and fellow private investigator, Clare, is certain she can find him, as she holds the key to his past. She arrives in the oceanside city where he last lived and starts digging around. Not only is Malcolm gone without a trace, so is his wife, Zoe. Everyone who knew the perfect couple sees Malcolm as the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance. Everyone except Clare. She’s certain there’s more at play that has nothing to do with Malcolm, a dark connection to Zoe’s family business and the murder of her father years ago.
As Clare pulls back the layers, she discovers secrets the entire community is trying desperately to leave in the past. As for Malcolm, his past is far more complex—and far more sinister—than Clare could ever have imagined. He may not be innocent at all. As she searches for the man who helped her build her career as a private eye, Clare discovers that many women are in grave danger. And she is among them.
Featuring Amy Stuart’s “captivating, mysterious, and relevant” (Marissa Stapley, author of Things to Do When It’s Raining) prose, Still Here is an unputdownable thriller that will haunt you long after you finish it.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Having read Still Mine and Still Water, I knew I had to get my hands on Still Here. While Still Here can technically be read as a stand-alone- to truly appreciate Clare, Malcom and the conclusion of the series- you really need to read the first 2.
From my Goodreads review: “Twisty and turny- and wrapping up lots of questions I have had about this series- it’s a must read for fans of the series.”
What I Liked:
The cover. All of Amy’s covers have a good look to them- a little dark, a little mysterious and this fits in with her brand. Plus I love that red coat flying out- looks so eye catching!
Clare. At times, Clare has shades of an unreliable narrator to her. You know her basic story, but there are def more secrets to her.
The dynamic between Malcom and Clare- part mentorship, part something that is hard to describe- these 2 characters need each other and trust each other- but are experts at keeping secrets from one another.
Bottom line: Great conclusion to the STILL series. I really enjoyed this book.
