A 2022 Audie Award Finalist

The instant #1 New York Times bestselling mystery and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick that’s captivated more than a million readers about a woman searching for the truth about her husband’s disappearance…at any cost.

“A fast-moving, heartfelt thriller about the sacrifices we make for the people we love most.” —Real Simple

Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.

With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.

    too repetitive and not enough happening. Slow and many good leads missed and left hanging. Naration was too too slow. Style of writing very repetitive and preachy.

    It’s a good enough story and keeps you engaged. The main issue I had was how melodramatic it could be.

    It was an okay story. Wasn’t as good as the hype but still an ok listen.

    Loved listening to this book, loved the story- has a little bit of everything romance, drama, mystery, and a few surprises.

    I tried so hard to like this book, too understand the race reviews, but I couldn't do it. It preaches, it is oversimplified, repetitious, and moves at a pace so slow it is infuriatingly frustrating. It has no originality and depends on name dropping of fancy places to create a hollow environment. The narrator uses the same three notes in the same order for every sentence for the entire book. The whole thing was excruciatingly, monotonously boring.

    I thought this book was just suspenseful enough and I appreciated the ending that deviated from the typical expected.

    The plot was well thought-through but I found the repetitiveness of set statements too much - and if I heard the name "Bailey" again, I was going to scream. It was all too "heartfelt" for its content. I wondered how on earth the step-mother could care SO MUCH for what was a shallow, angry young woman. One could understand why she was so unpleasant but not why helping her would be such a heartfelt wish of the narrator. Just not real. I felt that the narrator did what she could with the material - "my wrenching heart was torn asunder" - what else could she do with that but plead?
