It’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.

3.5*
Rose just had the oddest of nights. On her drive home from an out-of-town meeting, she mysteriously awakens in her car, in the middle of a field. Drawing a complete blank, no clue what happened, how she got there. And just to add to the shock of it all, Rose notices blood on her windshield! But she’s unhurt...and there is no one else around.

Rose is a woman shrouded in mystery. What happened all those years ago that she doesn’t want anyone discovering? What exactly happened in that field?

Last Night is a stand alone novel by one of my favorite authors. I adore Wilkinson’s Jessica Daniels series and enjoyed the other stand alone of his that I read, Two Sisters.

The novel starts with Rose waking in her car in the middle of the night. She’s in the middle of nowhere, there’s blood on the hood and windshield but no sign of any dead deer or other creature. She can’t remember how she got there. Maybe because I’m at an age when my memory SUCKS, I love narrations where the main character

“Last Night” Rose wakes up in her car. It is in a field, the windshield covered in blood. The blood, is not hers. Rose looks everywhere but can’t find a body and she has no recollection as to how she wound up there. Pretty nightmarish, right?! The night of the accident Rose was staying at a hotel where a young man went missing and Rose is deathly afraid that she hit him. Thereafter strange things start happening to her: her work pass disappears and reappears, her keys end up in strange

I was lost in the mushy, grassy field in the desolate coulee with Kaceey and Susanne reading Last Night. Things started off a bit slow for us with this story and at times we wanted to nod off in the coulee, however, there was enough suspense to the story to keep us turning the pages right to the end.

Kerry Wilkinson does a good job creating an interesting, unlikable, and unreliable character here with our main character Rose. A dense fog soon fell over us in the coulee as we tried to piece

In the early hours of the morning, Rose awakens to find herself sat behind the wheel of her car. She quickly realises that she is in a field and that there is a hole in the hedge by the road. Obviously she has come off the road and ended up here. The only thing is, she doesn’t even remember getting in her car, let alone driving.

Upon getting out of the car she discovers that there is also blood on her bonnet, lots of blood, yet no damage and no

This one didn't wow me quite as much as some of Kerry Wilkinson's other work, but it's still solid and kept me reading. It features the kind of twists and suspense he's known for. 3.5 stars from me. While I read, I debated on whether the narrator was reliable or not. Is she going crazy? Is someone gaslighting her? Is there more to her than what we know? I find that to make for an unnerving reading experience. In a lot of ways, main character Rose leads a very dull life. She's separating from her ...more

This is a standalone story from this author who has previously written a great series too.

It starts off very dramatically where Rose wakes in a ditch at the wheel of a car. This was the start of what I can say was an action packed read, thought provoking from start to finish.
She had been on a business trip.

We later find out what happened as the story goes back in parts then forward in time so we get to meet this in the middle. The author has cleverly lead me along a path he wanted me to

I was not sure about this book in the beginning. It did start off really well and the ending was fantastic but in the middle I started to wonder if I would finish it. So glad I did.. such a great ending that I did not pick.

It starts off with Rose waking up on the side of the road after crashing her car. She can't remember a thing and there is a lot of blood. Things start to come back to her but she is still very confused. Then her daughters boyfriend goes missing, he marriage falls apart and

Much ado about nothing — this says it all about this book. I never thought I would ever get to the end, and I am so glad I got to it without a DNF.

I generally like Kerry Wilkinson books, but in the recent times, the level of intrigue in his prose is going way down. Giving in to popular style of writing, a main character who is a total ditsy with disjointed way of talking and thinking, I was pretty much bored with her thoughts throughout the book... And she thinks and thinks and thinks.

First off, I’m a huge fan of Kerry Wilkinson but....this left me a little disappointed. I can always count on Kerry for delivering a suspenseful mystery. So if your looking for a new author to try, I recommend one of Kerry’s books. For me, this one kind of dragged and I kept waiting for that moment where I would get hooked. The book started off promising. Rose wakes up in a field with blood all over her front car with no idea how she got there and where the blood came from. Sounds good right? As ...more

How bizarre! Rose wakes up in her car in the middle of the night, having no recollection as to how her car has ended up in between a hedge off the road in the middle of nowhere. What's worse is that there's blood on her windscreen and the front of her car... But strangely there is no sign of what or who she may have hit. Baffled, she drives home, getting rid of the evidence by washing her car squeaky clean. To add gasoline to this mysterious fire, her daughter's boyfriend has gone

Rose Denton is having a tough go of it. She and her 20-year husband are just going through the motions at this point - barely - and their 18-year-old daughter Olivia has evolved into a surly witch with a capital B. Rose's job as a high-end IT system saleswoman is getting harder by the day, and she's getting signals from her boss that improvement is in order stat (or else). And when she goes off on what should be a routine overnight business trip, she wakes up behind the wheel of her car in a ...more

Last Night is my first Kerry Wilkinson book and it looks like I have even more to add to my TBR list. A standalone psychological thriller that kept me up late reading because I couldn’t put it down. The opening was BAM IN YO’ FACE… with main character Rose waking up with blood all over her car and struggling to remember what has happened. Totally hooked me right off the bat!

Kerry Wilkinson is one of those authors where you just know that as soon as you pick up one of his books, you’re in for a bumpy ride and a thrilling afternoon. Last Night is no different and it makes for one entertaining reading session.

Rose Denton wakes up behind the wheel of her car in the middle of nowhere, with absolutely no idea how she got there. She was in a hotel, wasn’t she? Why is she in her car? What’s all that blood on the bonnet and the windscreen? It’s not hers, thankfully, but it

Hi, having not read any of Kerry Wilkinsons previous books I was looking forward to ‘Last Night’....and what a night it was for the main character, Rose....she ‘comes to’ in her car, in a field with blood all over her car and no idea where she is or why her car is covered with blood... and so the story and intrigue begins and continues throughout this book, I use the word intriguing as that sums the book up, it really is an intriguing read....each revelation adds another 3 questions that need

Amazing! This author always delivers, whether with his crime stories or his psychological thrillers. And this book I thought was his very best with the pace never letting up from the jaw dropping beginning to the brilliant and tense end. Loved this fro start to finish. Twisted and satisfying. Highly recommended.

Rose Denton wakes behind the wheel. It's two-something am, dark, and she is apparently in the middle of a field with blood on her windshield and hood. She is confused, has no memory for how she might have gotten there, and after an inspection of her own body (nothing sore or broken), can find no apparent victim, animal or human.

She manages to get home but won't tell her estranged husband. She has nothing but contempt for him and proceeds to fully clean up the car of all traces of blood. Totally

After a rather slow start it picks up speed and suspense. Persevere, it certainly is worth it! Rose (and the other characters) are very believable.

This one is, apart from the thriller aspect, a lot about relationships. Very recognizable.

A book full of twists and turns, with an excellent twisty ending.
Things were not so rosy in the Denton household. From the outside it seemed all was well, but what happened on that night? She crashed her car, or did she? They got burgled, or did they? Things in the kitchen drawer weren’t there, then they were. Is it coincidence, a set-up? Rose is turning into a paranoid wreck. It drew me in, keen to get to the bottom of each family member, their friends, their colleagues.
It’s the first book I’ve

It’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. It's dark and she isn't hurt. No injury. No blood.

However when she steps out of the car, a bit groggy and unstable, she finds blood on the hood and windshield of her car. No damage to the car. Nothing lying dead or injured on the ground. Just blood on the car. But just how did she get here? The last thing she remembers is going to bed in a hotel

Rose Denton is not having an easy time of it. She & her husband are on the point of separating, her teenage daughter hardly speaks to her because Rose disapproves of Ty- her boyfriend and her boss is making it clear that unless her sales figures improve she may be looking for another job.

Kerry Wilkinson is without a doubt one of my favorite authors. I started reading the Detective Jessica Daniels series and was immediately hooked. His standalone novels are wonderful psychological thrillers where he takes ordinary people and puts them straight into a nightmare! Last night hooks you from the very beginning and the surprises keep you wanting to turn the pages faster. Excellent read with an ending I didn't expect. I thank Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this book. ...more

The opening of Last Night, is the first puzzle to try and crack, Rose has had an accident found herself in a field, with blood on the windscreen of her car, no sign of an injured or dead animal, where has the blood come from has she knocked someone down.
