They placed me in here and threw away the key. I look down at the gown they’ve put on me. I want my own clothes. I don’t know how long I’ve been here.
An elderly woman is found murdered in her own home, and Detective Lottie Parker and her partner Detective Boyd are called in to investigate. When they discover that the victim’s daughter is missing as well, they start to fear for the safety of the whole family…
Two days later as a nearby house is set on fire and with the body count rising, Lottie and her team begin to unpick a web of secrets and lies, as the murders seem to link back to a case investigated by Lottie’s father before he took his own life.
With little knowledge of what really happened to her father, Lottie knows this is a case that could give her some answers. But how much does she want to know?
The killer has already made his next move. Can Lottie face her own demons and uncover the truth before another life is taken?
The Lost Child is a thrilling page-turner from the bestselling author of The Missing Ones and The Stolen Girls that will have you guessing right to the very last page. Perfect for fans of Rachel Abbott, Angela Marsons and Robert Dugoni.
The Lost Child is book 3 in the Lottie Parker series. A series well worth reading. And as I always say the series is better when read in order, but that again is just my opinion.
It's not so long ago I read the first book by this very talented story teller, and here I am reading book 3. It's safe to say, each book get's better and better, as we learn more about the characters it really helps build up the stories.
I'm loving the character of Lottie Parker. This is one of those stories though that it could be so easy to say to much about the story. I'm worried of giving to much away so will just keep it brief.
When Tessa Ball is found murdered, its down to Detective Lottie Parker and her partner Detective Boyd to investigate. They soon discover that the victim’s daughter is missing as well, they start to fear for the safety of the whole family.
The investigation takes them on huge journey, and it turns up a lot more along the way.
Lottie certainly puts in the work, a mother and a Detective this is one busy woman. How she copes is not ideal and Lottie really does have some serious issues, this I find makes her a much more realistic character.
We also learn a lot more in this book about Lotties mother and father, and the back history of what has happened is thrilling.
This is another great read, and I really do feel that this series of books will become huge, the more we get to know the characters, the more interesting the books seem to be.
