Review: Last Night by Kerry Wilkinson @bookouture

Last Night.jpgIt’s the early hours of the morning and Rose Denton wakes up behind the steering wheel of her car. She’s off the road, through a hedge and in a field.

There’s blood on the windscreen and bonnet – but it’s not hers and there’s no sign of anything or anyone she might have hit. The last thing she remembers is being in a hotel on a business trip but now she’s miles away.

Back home and her daughter’s boyfriend is missing. The last thing he did was argue with Rose over money. He left no note, no text, no clue as to his whereabouts.

The police have questions – and so does Rose’s family. But those are little compared to the ones she has for herself.

What happened last night? And, perhaps more importantly, does she really want to know the answer?


I have read a few books by Kerry Wilkinson and I am totally hooked to his writing. This book just made me like his works even more. Honestly, if you are yet to read Kerry’s books then you are definitely missing out.

Last Night begins with a dramatic scene. Rose wakes up in her car. She is in a field with no idea about how she got there. To make matters worse, there is blood on her windscreen which she can’t explain. I immediately wondered what I would have done in the same situation. Would have I gone to the police or driven home hoping to forget the incident. Tough choice! This was exactly Rose’s predicament. She needed answers fast but unfortunately, her mind was blank and someone else was working hard to ensure that it stayed that way.

I enjoyed this suspenseful read with all its twists. There were instances when things happened outside the main storyline and I feared that Kerry was deviating a bit. However, it turns out that everything that happened was meaningful and I loved how the author brilliantly connected it all in the end making this quite a suspenseful, captivating read from start to finish.

Last Night was an entertaining read. I loved how the book tackled different themes such as marriage and family dynamics intertwined with the ongoing mystery surrounding Rose. This was a fast-paced, unpredictable, addictive read which I definitely recommend.
