In Still Here, PI Clare is looking for her missing mentor Malcolm and his wife, Zoe, in their hometown of Lune Bay. Zoe has been missing over a year. Malcolm is missing for only eight days. Malcolm is more than just Clare’s mentor. He helped her escape an abusive relationship and encouraged her to become a PI. Clare has to find him and learn why he left.
Beginning a story at the end of the tale is a great way to get readers involved in the plot and compel them to continue to read the book. However, Still Here goes so far that the perpetrator is easy to determine in literally the first chapter. No one wants to see behind the curtain in a mystery book. I spent the rest of the book already knowing the conclusion. Therefore, I give this book 3 stars.
Thanks to Galley Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
