Hahtoolah | 439 comments Billed as a psychological thriller, Girl Last Seen was based on a very odd premise. The novel opens when 13-year old Ella Santos was found by Office Sean Ortiz after having been abducted three years earlier. She had been sexually abused during her abduction, and when she was finally freed, she was pregnant.

The abduction destroyed her, and 10 years later, she has changed her name to Laine Moreno, and is working as a bartender in a seedy bar. She watches for abductions similar to hers. When Olivia Shaw is abducted, Laine realized that this young girl has been stolen by the same person who captured her years ago. Laine seeks to assist the police in finding Olivia. What happens next just defies logic.

The same police officer, Sean Ortiz, is involved in the Olivia Shaw kidnapping. We also learn that Olivia is Laine's daughter, who was taken from her immediately after her birth. Laine then becomes friends with Olivia’s adopted mother, although the adoptive father is distant. The ending was not very satisfactory.
