#BookReview #TheLost by Simon Beckett #BlogTour @BeckettSimon @Tr4cyF3nt0n @orionbooks


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


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.


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.
