Detective Ben Rossi was investigating Jack’s disappearance and when Ellie saw him, she was shocked. Ben and Ellie had a history and she really didn’t want anything to do with him but making the best of a bad thing under the circumstances was all she could do. Jack Bannerman’s business had been built from the ground up, and Ellie’s own side business, The Foundation, was also doing well. But with Jack missing and Dennis making himself CEO, plus other staff members acting a little strangely, Ellie had no idea who to trust.
When a body was sighted in the ocean not far from their yacht, the Sea Angel, Ellie suspected the worst. Was it Jack? What was going on? And why did Ellie feel she was being watched? Would she ever see her father again?
Last Known Contact by Aussie author Phillipa Nefri Clark was intense, and I loved it! This author is very versatile with historical fiction, historical mysteries and suspense/mysteries all written equally well. I found Ellie to be a strong-willed character, loyal to a fault, and soft at her core – almost too much so as to be led in the wrong direction. Campbell was another favourite although his role was reasonably minor. Last Known Contact is a novel I am happy to recommend highly.
Ellie arrives home to Melbourne from London to find out that her father is missing, Jack Bannerman is head of the family company and a force to be reckoned in his business dealings, there are no clues whether he is dead or alive and Ellie is beside herself with worry and more so when she finds out that her estranged husband was his last known contact but denies it and jumps in to take over as CEO in the meantime and this causes Ellie more worries.
When detective Ben Rossi is called in to investigate emotions run high with Ellie as her and Ben have a past a past when they were in love and he is the last person she wants to see but he is doing his job very well with a lot of help from Ellie and soon they are uncovering secrets that a lot of company directors and family are keeping.
This is a fast paced story that had me turning the pages I had to get to the finish yet it is such a great story I also didn’t want it to finish, Ellie is so strong and capable even if there is killer on the lose making it dangerous for her and Ben oh he is good at his job and is determined to keep Ellie safe and get to the bottom of the mystery about Jack Bannerman’s disappearance and the longer Ben and Ellie spend together the more they open up about the past and feelings are changing, could they find love again with everything that is going on?
This is a book that I highly recommend, I loved it and everyone should read it.
I highly recommend it because the characters were enjoyable, the mystery around Ellie's missing father is well developed and the exchanges are delightful and enhance the read. The pivotal moments get the heart going and the character development is brilliant.
I really enjoy following Phillipa Nefri Clark's evolvement because I feel as she evolves as a writer so does her books.

The characters are extremely well developed and the reader is left guessing to the end as to whether Ellie’s father is dead or alive and the reasons behind his disappearance.
This book has all the ingredients of a good thriller and you won’t be disappointed if you pick it up. Highly recommended.
