About Last Seen
A captivating new novel from one of the best crime writers working today. In August, San Francisco is a cold beauty...and the perfect place for a killer targeting young women visiting the Bay Area. The latest victim is Emma Barre, a deaf French teenager. Emma is also brilliant and due to enter one of France’s best universities. But Emma, just seventeen, has disappeared while visiting the City’s famous Pier 39 with her parents. The extremely well known and heavily visited tourist attraction is the site of all the killer’s previous abductions. Somehow, this psychopath is able to spirit his victims away despite the attraction being full of visitors from all over the world. Her only hope is troubled SFPD Detective Michael O'Higgins, currently taking Acid as part of an experimental program for PSTD patients. but can O'Higgins see clearly enough to track down an elusive killer, or will mind-altering substances prevent him from doing his sworn duty? As O'Higgins closes in, he will come face-to-face with both the trauma that ruptured his own life, and a killer hell-bent on ending that of a young girl. LAST SEEN is a riveting novel of suspense that packs an emotional wallop--think Fellini meets Elmore Leonard with a soundtrack by Nina Simone. Buckle up…
Praise for the novels of Kent Harrington
"Dark Ride is a gripping tale that takes you into the dark and violent heart of obsession. It reads like Jim Thompson interpreted by Quentin Tarantino. This one puts a chilling finger down your spine." --Michael Connelly
"An ambitious and entertaining book with elements of both political thriller and noir novel, making it a compelling hybrid of Ross Thomas and Jim Thompson." --Chicago Sun-Times on Red Jungle
"Fabulous. Utterly. For some reason it took me forever to read, mostly because I didn't want this incredible story of adventure, doomed love and danger in Guatemala to end. It's been said, not just by me, that Harrington deserves to have a wider audience. So I'll say it again and add this: just read this book. Now." --Sarah Weinman on Red Jungle
