Book Review: Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig

Last Seen Leaving
by Caleb Roehrig 
Flynn's girlfriend has disappeared. How can he uncover her secrets without revealing his own?

Flynn's girlfriend, January, is missing. The cops are asking questions he can't answer, and her friends are telling stories that don't add up. All eyes are on Flynn—as January's boyfriend, he must know something.

But Flynn has a secret of his own. And as he struggles to uncover the truth about January's disappearance, he must also face the truth about himself.

Review: I had to think about this book for a while before I reviewed it. Roehrig created a complicated world with interesting characters that had fantastic depth. While I had some issues with the plot, mainly the idea of a 15-year-old boy to be so far ahead of the police, it was well written and kept me interested. The writing is great with details that put me in Ann Arbor and into Flynn’s life so well.
Recommended for anyone who enjoys mysteries.

About the author: Caleb Roehrig is a writer and television producer originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Having also lived in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Helsinki, Finland, he has a chronic case of wanderlust, and can recommend the best sights to see on a shoestring budget in over thirty countries. A former actor, Roehrig has experience on both sides of the camera, with a résumé that includes appearances on film and TV—as well as seven years in the stranger-than-fiction salt mines of reality television. In the name of earning a paycheck, he has: hung around a frozen cornfield in his underwear, partied with an actual rock-star, chatted with a scandal-plagued politician, and been menaced by a disgruntled ostrich.
