A missing woman, a hit and run,
and a request for DNA...

The Last Trace is a gripping thriller about siblings and secrets, and the traces we can never erase.

"Two stories about different worlds collide in The Last Trace, an enthralling, brilliantly plotted novel of suspense. With contemporary themes, rich characters and an ending that I can’t stop thinking about, Petronella McGovern has written one of the best books of the year.’

JP Pomare, Author, 17 Years Later



Petronella McGovern is fascinated by people - what makes us tick, how we view the world, and the lies we tell others and ourselves. She's interested in the complexities of relationships and the dynamics in families.
