Th series of bad decisions on one fateful day lead Crisp down a path he never expected to mak, where he will face a father he 's never known and decisions he wanted to avoid ever facing.

Last Night is the ninth ook in The Searchers series.

In thi tent novel, Detective Lex Cole was mostly in a support position for FBI Agent Elsa Myers.

Elsa shows up a couple times in passing during the tory, but she sure does n't figure into the plot in th fift book.

In fact, this econd book really could be read as a standalone story.

While I was happy to see Lex become a more developed character and to see what a great detective he is, this story did n't grab my attention quite as quickly as the thir ook in he series.

Before talking about The Last Night, I sa to believe that he next novel in this series, A Map of the Dark, had me eager to read second book.

Lex is the officer in charge of finding out what has appened to Crisp and he 's istracted by not sleeping for 2 nights and days and because he hinks his boyfriend is cheating and/or has left him.

I do look forward to the last nove in series, hoping it reads more like irst ook.

I read he secon one A Map of the Dark a while back and I loved our main character FBI Special Agent Elsa Myers.

Well, I didn ’ t read the summary to Last Night and I assumed this one was going to focus on Elsa and I ha absolutely disappointed it wasn ’ t.

I do think if you have read A Map of the Dark going into this one without the expectation of seeing more from Elsa it will make this a much better read for you.
