Publisher's Summary

The heart-hammering thriller from the queen of the London crime scene. A serial killer is being closely watched by one young boy. Barney knows the killer will strike again soon. The victim will be another boy, just like him. He will drain the body of blood, and leave it on a Thames beach. There will be no clues for detectives Dana Tulloch and Mark Joesbury to find. There will be no warning about who will be next. There will be no good reason for young policewoman Lacey Flint to become involved . . . And no chance that she can stay away.

Like This, For Ever is published as Lost in the US.

Can't stop listening.

This was a very unusual story, it was absolutely thrilling. Loved it didn't guess until near the end who was behind the killings. Well worth it

Gripping story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book to people who like crime/thrillers.

What other book might you compare Like This, For Ever to, and why?

If you have read any other of S J Boltons books you will love this just as much, and if you haven't....what are you waiting for? They're fantastic! She is up there with the best of crime writers in my opinion: her stand alones (Sacrifice, Blood Harvest etc) are probably my favourites but this series with Lacey Flint is easily one of my favourite reads: pacey and enough mini twists to keep you guessing.

Have you listened to any of Lisa Coleman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I do remember her as being an actress. She is a brilliant narrator and I would definitely check out other books narrated by her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not one that moved me, but the ending was a surprise, particulalry as I thought I had been clever and guessed early on. I like it when I'm proved wrong as it keeps it exciting.

Any additional comments?

Ideally read as the latest in the series (so far of 3) as some of the characters re-appear, but it's not absolutely necessary and could still be read on its own.

Just brilliant!

This may well be my favourite Lacey book so far, it is a very close call with the first one!

I really liked how we saw aftermath from the events of the previous book and how much Lacey was actually affected by them. We saw a very vulnerable side to her and I have a new-found huge respect for her. The ending in particular was very satisfying and showed a light at the end of the tunnel.

The main storyline was very, very well written and kept me guessing throughout. I changed my mind on who I thought did it several times and still ended up being wrong. Very clever.

Once again, brilliant performance from Lisa Coleman.

Looking forward to reading the next book, however I'll have a little break and read something slightly lighter first!

Goodish story!

A good one for fans of the Lacey Flint stories..

first... i will say... if you are triggered by self harm - DO NOT READ / LISTEN. i dont want to ruin it but it's referenced a fair bit.

some bits are a bit unbelievable.... a DCI on sick leave being allowed into an investigation.... hmm doubt it... others where the police are just dumb and a bit annoying and the private lives of police officers families being part of the murderers plot... hmm didn't we have this in the 1st book??..... saying that it kept me gripped in between the annoying bits and there were enough red herrings for a sushi buffet.

great plot twist made up for the bad stuff. overall enjoyed it though.

Totally wow

I now love this author. Thanks to Sharon Bolton i am now sleep deprived. This book had me hooked from start to finish, so much so i had it finished in one day. everyone seemed to be guilty for commiting these horrific crimes. Can't wait until i read the next book in this series but just need to sleep first. I'd highly recommend these books so far none have disappointed me.

Extra good

This latest Lacey Flint lives up to the excellence of the others. Lacey is off work on sick leave following the events in Cambridge in previous book ‘Dead Scared'.
D.I. Dana Tulloch is leading the search into the disappearance of five young boys under twelve years old.
The children are gradually found dead with their bodies drained of blood and then references to vampires are released frightening everyone. There is then suspicion that the killer is a woman.
This book was equally unputdownable and even though I thought I knew who was behind it I was totally wrong as usual with books by this author.
This is book 3 in Lacey Flint series. I would highly recommend it and I will be reaching for book 4 very soon.

Another gripping tale

Is it still okay to describe a book as "un-put-downable" if you listened to it rather than read it? That's how I would describe this one. The only frustration I have is with the time it is taking the two lead characters to get together.

Gripping.

Sharon has done it again with a gripping storie from start to end. I love how she weaves Lacey into the book. It had me on the edge of my car seat the whole time.
Well done too Lisa Colman. She is one of my Favourite Narrators and has done a fantastic Job in Like This, Forever.
