A book to keep. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. The puzzles in the relationships, the traveling from Britain to Poland and the return to a troubled past provided a real emotional rollercoaster ride. The tension and suspense held me completely. Its structure is very clever. Have bought copies to give as gifts.

I had been waiting for years for Danuta Reah to write a new book. I was not disappointed with The Last Room. The suspense was wonderful and I could hardly put the book down. She is a great writer and holds the readers interest from start to finish. I hope that there are more books to come from this author.

Having been an avid reader all my life I can honestly say that, apart from reading Sherlock Holmes with my son when he was a child, I have never read a crime novel.
Danuta Reah's, The Last Room was a great introduction to crime fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and following the plot and was also fascinated by all the detail on voice forensics and all the places the main protagonist visited, especially Lodz in Poland.
Thank you Danuta for introducing me to crime fiction. I shall read more

This novel explores pervasive themes in modern life. Child abuse — historical and current, asylum seekers —how they are perceived compared to the reality of their experience, ‘the war on terror’ — and our complicity in trampling the human rights of people when we wage it and above all the impact of wars on the survivors and their families.
The vehicle to explore these is the death of Ania Milosz, an expert in linguistics, in the Polish city of Lodz. The evidence seems to suggest that she killed herself in order to escape disgrace. Her father, recently retired senior police officer Will Gillen, haunted by the childhood abduction and murder of Ania’s twin sister, initially accepts this but decides to go and see for himself. The impact of suicide on the victim’s loved ones is vividly conveyed.
Her fiancé, Dariusz Erland a human rights lawyer, is unwilling to accept the verdict that she killed herself. What Will discovers in Lodz makes him suspect that Dariusz is right and he begins to investigate. The action encompasses Scotland and Manchester but mainly Lodz and we follow Will and Dariusz as they try to discover what happened. The tension builds as they follow the trail of evidence, each man using his network of contacts to try to uncover the truth. Someone is trying to stop the truth coming out and neither man knows whom they can trust.
Both Will and Dariusz are interesting characters with depth, although Will is the one we see more of. The descriptions of Lodz made me want to visit.
An enjoyable read and I look forward to finding more by this author.

This is a wonderfully tense, atmospheric novel concerning the apparent suicide of a forensic scientist accused of falsifying evidence. The plot, split between the UK and Poland, involves a brutal killing of a small child, an apparent miscarriage of justice, wranglings with security services and a strong focus on the nature of evidence. Excellent though the plot is, it is Reah's characters that move this novel onto a higher level. The dead woman's father, a retired policeman, decides to investigate, unable to accept that his daughter is guilty of tampering with evidence. He is forced to examine his own life, family memories, grief and anger, all of which are brilliantly portrayed. Superb crime fiction.

Format: Paperback
The Last Room By Danuta Reah

A new publication by Danuta Reah, [or her alternate identity Carla Banks] remains a treat for the insightful crime / thriller reader. Her work striates startling and ‘up to the minute’ plots that make the reader pause; and think beyond the narrative, and contemplate their link to the reality around us. With the contemporary world [as ever] in geopolitical turmoil, we find The Last Room reflecting this, in a very disturbing tale of the reality that is often masked under [what former US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara described as] ‘the fog of war’. The backstory for The Last Room is the Balkan War[s], though the lineage for that conflict, and this disturbing novel is further in time, back to WW2 [and African civil wars].

The opening of The Last Room is a terse, gruelling snatch of a vicious attack on a pregnant woman on Africa’s war-torn Ivory Coast in 2005. This sets the scene for a complex novel which questions if there can ever be any absolute truth, when as McNamara indicated, war masks everyone’s actions and deeds until it is all but secrets, lies and misinformation that mask the motivations of those at its core concealing the truth in the fog that crawls along a battlefield.
Moving to 2007 Europe, we follow the aftermath of the suicide of Dr Ania Milosz, an expert witness involved in the conviction of a child killer, Derek Haynes, who is appealing against his conviction for the murder of six-year old Sagal Akindes [daughter of aforementioned, brutalised Asylum Seeker from the Ivory Coast].
