Twenty-something drifter Miranda crashes her car late at night on a lonely highway and is picked up by a passing stranger who soon reveals himself to be more sinister than at first glance. No one knows Miranda is missing: her father died in a plane crash over Central America and her estranged mother, Anne, sought comfort in a New Age lifestyle in the Arizona desert.

When Anne reaches out to her daughter, no one has heard from Miranda for two months. All signs seem to point to Miranda's death, but she's actually living under an assumed name in a Virginia beach town and may not want to be found. Maybe George, her highway rescuer, means nothing by his unexpected appearances and is unconnected to rumours of a serial killer stalking young women. Maybe her mother will find her in time. Maybe not.

Last Seen Leaving explores the often ambiguous nature of danger and the dark secrets we keep in order to protect those we love.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Stiles | 2/13/2014

    " She has a style of writing that I admire. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 2/10/2014

    " Good psychological read. I didn't like the ending though. The rest of the book was developed well, then it seemed like the author was tired and just wrote the ending quickly to be done. The ending left alot of questions and did not complete the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam Reaves | 1/19/2014

    " A young woman wrecks her car and is picked up by a stranger headed down the road; she goes with the flow. When her estranged mother finally gets worried, she goes looking for her. The stranger may or may not be a serial killer; the mother may not know how to regain her daughter's trust, but she'll be damned if she'll give up on her. Alienation and tortured love in rootless America, sharply portrayed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/15/2014

    " This is one of my ultimate favorites. It took me a night and a day to read it entirely. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristin | 12/15/2013

    " I didn't like this much as her other book. I read this one first and I'm surprised I bothered with the other. There was so much cussing in this book. And it just felt totally disjointed and pointless. Didn't like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/6/2013

    " Elegantly written. I often hope for tidy endings with detailed explanations, but I am glad that didn't happen here. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie Lynn | 11/23/2013

    " Meh. Yes, that is a word... will be in the latest Collins English Dictionary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 11/13/2013

    " Awesome. Miranda's father disapears - he's a pilot. Her mother moves to Arizona. George picks up Miranda after a car accident. She lives at a beach in Virginia. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mkrone | 11/12/2013

    " Disappointing. It was semi-interesting but the ending was really stupid and trite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 11/4/2013

    " This book was a bit strange. It was a lot different than I thought it was going to be given the title. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie | 7/31/2013

    " I enjoyed this book until the last few chapters when the author left some issues unresolved. Warning spoiler alert. Why did X call Anne and then kill himself? Too bad George didn't shed light on Randa's dad death instead of going off the road. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene Wright | 2/28/2013

    " This book is about a woman whose adult daughter goes missing. Of course it made me think of my own precious daughter the whole time I was reading it. My dd is only 12. But, the whole time all I could think was if my dd ever did this I would be beside myself! To say the least! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/25/2013

    " Why can't I find a good mystery book that doesn't have such foul language in it? Good book, good story. Awful language. I had to skip parts, which is never a good sign because then I have to quit reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marti | 1/5/2013

    " a clever story of mother-daughter disconnection and forgiveness painted on a backdrop of impending danger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy or Eva | 9/25/2012

    " a breezy read with good characters if not particularly suspenseful "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 9/10/2012

    " 3.5 -- mother searching for missing daughter "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lara | 7/22/2012

    " By the author of 'Josie and Jack' and just as engrossing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Barnes | 6/30/2012

    " Great character development, but not enough of the plot threads were wrapped up at the end (which I guess is kind of like life, so perhaps this is a metaphysical comment on our state of being). All in all, I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 6/10/2012

    " Ms. Braffet's story of a mother searching for her missing daughter is compelling. An NPR review aptly called this book "3 novels in one" and I think that is true. A quick, gut punch read, you will not soon forget the mother/daughter dysfunction in Last Seen Leaving. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jules | 6/5/2012

    " I was confused with this book. It was categorized as a thriller and its not a thriller, its more of a book about coming to terms with your past. Its more about the relationship & dynamics between a mother & her daughter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/21/2012

    " This book was a funny twist on a who-done-it since you're not completely sure that anything was done, exactly. But it is an interesting character study of two very different women, and definitely kept me turning the pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 2/18/2012

    " An ok read about a daughter trying to find her way in the world and a mother trying to find her daughter ~ physically and emotionally. Sort of a weird read and a bit predictible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 2/17/2012

    " I really enjoyed the decriptions of the mother/daughter disfunction and the teenage angst. However, not sure about the " mystery thriller" description. More a novel of lives destroyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chantal | 9/2/2010

    " Intriguing story about a daughter who goes missing. "
