    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Good Book"

    This is a good book, but the lead character isn't as endearing as 'Joe' in the first book in the series. Having said that it is well written, an interesting story line and a great performance.

    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!

    "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

    "Never Fails to Deliver"

    This is the fourth book I've listened to from this author and have enjoyed all of them. I keep coming back for more and plan to eventually listen to them all. (So little time, so many books!) I'm not an "easy" rater, and take the time to rate only those books I really like, or occasionally, dislike. But these are comfortable, well-paced, well written, and include flawed but credible characters. Violence is not terribly graphic in this one.

    Usual protagonist, Joseph O'Loughlin Ph.D., is an important, but supporting character in this outing. O'Loughlin has Parkinson's disease so has to use his skills as a psychologist rather than fists. In this outing, he is helping police inspector Ruiz recover memory of a traumatic encounter which included being shot. Ruiz has been haunted by a child abduction three years earlier, for which someone has already been convicted, without a body being recovered. Now a ransom is demanded, alleging child is still alive, throwing into question the whole history of the case. Ruiz is not popular with his peers and he must deal with those issues as well as finding a solution to the abduction and probable killing.

    I usually listen at 1.25 speed, but this narrator holds up well at even 1.5 speed.

    "More from this reader!"

    Good story - I was kept guessing as to the ultimate conclusion. The twists and turns did not seem contrived and there was no violence that was over-the-top. But the best part of the book was the reader. This is the first novel I've read by Michael Robotham and I was very disappointed to see that Ray Lonnen doesn't read any of the others. He is top notch!
