Last Day by Luanne Rice is a psychological fiction. The book hit the shelves on 1st February 2020. It has been published by Thomas & Mercer. The book is also available as an audiobook and an e-book.
Years ago, Beth Lathrop and her sister Kate suffered what they thought would be the worst tragedy of their lives the night both the famous painting Moonlight and their mother were taken. The detective assigned to the case, Conor Reid, swore to protect the sisters from then on.
Beth moved on, throwing herself fully into the art world, running the family gallery, and raising a beautiful daughter with her husband Pete. Kate, instead, retreated into herself and took to the skies as a pilot, always on the run. When Beth is found strangled in her home, and Moonlight goes missing again, Detective Reid can’t help but feel a sense of déjà vu.
Just for today, LAST DAY is .99p in the UK. It's about two sisters in a small town on the Connecticut shoreline, a violent crime, and the painting at the center of it all. #kindledeal @ukkindledeals https://t.co/sp5fZsQAjm pic.twitter.com/HUsmos49JH

Reid immediately suspects Beth’s husband, whose affair is a poorly kept secret. He has an airtight alibi—but he also has a motive, and the evidence seems to point to him. Kate and Reid, along with the sisters’ closest childhood friends, struggle to make sense of Beth’s death, but they only find more questions: Who else would have wanted Beth dead? What’s the significance of Moonlight?
