    Story
    "Just when you think the well's gone dry!"

    Michael Robotham can just plain write. His character vibrate with plausibility as the work their way into credibility and resonance with the reader. Flawed but tenacious as a terrier, DI Lewis will not cease his journey for justice no matter how formidable the resistance or nagging his occasional self-doubt. The tension in this plot was particularly meaningful to me as I once suffered Temporary Global Amnesia and could relate to this scary predicament. Dauntless, though fired, publicly shamed and admonished, he, with his pal Joe, unravel this tightly woven suspense filled story with the grace of a Maestro.

    I rarely give 5 stars and felt I had run out of quality writers in this genre. Robotham is a winner!

    Story
    "Another stress filled mystery/thriller!"

    The main character in this book is Vincent Ruiz instead of Joe O'Loughlin. It starts as Ruiz is fished out of the Thames injured and with no memory of what has happened. Joe is present throughout, helping Ruiz to recover his memory and solve the mystery he was pursuing. Unfortunately, that case was closed with a conviction several years ago. The police want him off the case, threaten him with criminal proceedings, and finally suspend/fire him. In addition, someone is trying to kill him. He won't let go and eventually sees it through to its resolution.

    Once again, Robothom has created a mystery thriller that piles stress after stress on the main character. How he maintains his sanity, stays alive, and manages to solve the mystery make for an involved and entertaining listen.

    I believe that this book can stand alone; it is not necessary to read the first one to pick up the story line or the characters. I plan to move on to book three.

    The narration is appropriate for the material. The story creates enough stress without having the narrator adding more.

    "Great dectective mystery, great narration"

    If books like "The Da Vinci Code" and the like have you groaning because of over-the-top coincidences, near-misses, and impossible get-a-ways, then try listening to this realistic, but exciting, mystery of a missing child, lost memories, diamond ransoms, sewer explorations, and snipers. The narration was very well done, believable and sympathetic.

    "A Good Read"

    I enjoyed listening to this story...believable characters, complex story line and a touch of humor to lighten the seriousness of the plot. I would listen to another of this author's books and would rate LOST as a 4.5.

    "well done"

    A well done detective novel. Certain tried and true "rogue cop" aspects are present, but over all fresh. Interesting characters and well narrated. It is better than anything I have recently listened to or read by James Patterson. I would reccomend it.

    "Shallow story, terrible narration"

    The male voice is slimy, the female voice is utterly without nuance. I imagine her reading the story for the first time and trying to fake tones of concern, love, fear, etc., without ever having experienced those emotions. Where did they dig these narrators up? The story suffers immeasurably from the poor reading, but isn't that good to begin with, and the ending is just too pat. Save your money.

    "Brilliant!"

    I really enjoy english police literature such as Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks stories. I had no past experience with this author or the reader. The story is well crafted and unlike some other listeners I felt it moved along quite nicely. It is very English in style, not nearly so fast paced as an American police novel perhaps but with wonderful characters and the English risk that all may not come out well in the end.

    I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, Stephen King, and some fantasy novels. Now and again I like a biography and a bit of history. No romance!

    Story
    "Emotionally involving"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lost to be better than the print version?

    I couldn't say as I have not read the print version. I enjoyed the audio very much though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book at all. I enjoyed it and I was hoping all the way through for a certain outcome so I was involved as I read. It kept me guessing.


    Any additional comments?

    Great characters and it was fun to listen to this second book because the author turns things around and we get the perspective of another character rather than his main character in the series. It was fun to see things through his eyes. A nice twist.

    "Too much Ruiz, too little Joe."
    What did you like best about Lost? What did you like least?

    Good story, but TMI about London sewage system.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Robotham’s story?

    Several times I wasn't sure if I was listening to a past or present event

    "Very tense story,no let up"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Got past 2 hours listening and gave it up. Some characters just jump into the mix with no setting. The story of a kidnapped girl has to be handled carefully, IMO.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    sad,intense story
