Laura Dave

A husband goes missing and the FBI are after him. All he leaves behind is a note to his wife Hannah: ‘protect her’. She knows he’s referring to his daughter – her step-daughter – Bailey. Together, the two women must uncover the truth about the man they thought they knew. This is the plot of Laura Dave’s new novel, The Last Thing He Told Me. Laura explains to Richard and Judy that she doesn’t necessarily know what’s going to happen in her plots when she sits down to write, and they all swap notes on finding both California and London particularly magical places.
