The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka
This debut mystery is very compelling. PI Roxane Weary is in a real bad place dealing with the aftermath of her Columbus, Ohip police detective father's murder in the line of duty along with a slew of personal issues. Her brother throws her a bone with a case brought to him by a friend to locate a potential missing witness to save the friend's brother from the death penalty. Roxane spirals through relationships with both sexes and alcohol to a very dark place as she tries desperately to find the truth as to what happened when a family was murdered and a young girl went missing so long ago.
This would be a great opener to a series and I'd definitely read more to follow Roxane and her struggles to find stable ground in her life.
