 A MISSING CHILD

Ten years ago, the disappearance of firearms police officer Jonah Colley’s young son almost destroyed him.

A GRUESOME DISCOVERY

A plea for help from an old friend leads Jonah to Slaughter Quay, and the discovery of four bodies. Brutally attacked and left for dead, he is the only survivor.

A SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH

Under suspicion himself, he uncovers a network of secrets and lies about the people he thought he knew – forcing him to question what really happened all those years ago… 

My Thoughts

New author for me and a book one in a brand news….Happy Days! I am left wondering why the hell have I never read any of Simon’s books before. I cannot begin to tell you how bloody awesome this book is.

Grabbing me from the start with an OMFG opening which had me on the edge of my seat. I was well and truly hooked. This story is impossible to put down.

Jonah is left for dead and under suspicion with a full on action packed, tense start that’s also leaves the reader and Jonah wondering what the hell is going on. We follow a story that is brilliantly told has we piece the puzzle together …LOVE, LOVE ,LOVE IT!

This is what a crime thriller is all about. Brilliant character development and a nail biting plot. I seriously cannot wait for the next book in this series. And the author just got himself a new fan!

The Lost is easily one of the best books that I have read this year. It is a must read I cannot recommend it enough. Giving it all the stars.
