Publisher's Summary

Michael Robotham's Suspect, hailed as "a lightning-paced debut" by Entertainment Weekly, was an international best seller that raised the bar for thrillers. Now two characters from that acclaimed novel, Detective Vincent Ruiz and psychologist Joe O'Loughlin, return for the electrifying Lost. When Detective Ruiz is pulled from the Thames, he has a bullet in his leg, a photograph of a missing (and presumed dead) girl in his pocket, and absolutely no memory of what happened.

    "Robotham's Dive"

    If you read my reviews, you know I am a big fan of Robotham, so you can imagine how I was looking forward to this book. Therefore, it came as quite a surprise and disappointment for me to feel so ambivalent toward it.

    I listened to it through to the end, although it felt like much too long a plod for me. I felt the story line was somewhat farfetched, also. This is a very dark and gritty novel that explores the seamiest and seediest side of life imaginable. Picture a child molester, picture traveling through sewers flowing with feces, add a missing and presumed dead little girl and a very damaged and deteriorating investigator, our own Vincent Ruiz.

    Ruiz has spent the greater part of his life as an honest and successful criminal investigator and yet for some reason, he has no credibility and is distrusted and held in contempt by his superiors in this story. Just how did that happen? And going along with the current trend of very damaged law enforcement "heroes", he is several times divorced and alienated with his own children. Is this really supposed to endear us to him or make him somehow more interesting? I am getting sick and tired of broken and deteriorating detectives with wretched personal lives. Enough already!

    On the bright side, Robotham has a very unique writing style that should not be discounted. It is effectively and very simply descriptive. You feel almost like you have been shrunken and put in the protagonist's shirt pocket. You can smell things he smells, you see what he sees, you hear what he hears. Little details that paint a picture for you. Robotham really has a knack for this. I only wish he would come up a little way from the dark shadows and sewers once in a while.

    Ray Lonnen did a fine and very credible narration which is on a par with narrations by Sean Barrett, who has performed a number of the other books by this author.

    While this isn't my favorite Robotham mystery, I am not giving it a thumbs down. I'm leaving it up to you to decide whether you want to dive in.

    "It was okay....."

    Not so bad that I wanted to stop before it was over - but not so good that I was ever excited about listening to it. It was okay....

    "Well written and well read"

    Some have complained about the apparent digressions. However, these are eventually all tied together in terms of the motivation of the characters and the plot

    "LOST"

    I LOVED listening to this book! It grabs your interest from the very beginning, and has lots of twists and turns throughout.

    "Surprisingly excellent"

    This book did not have that great of review and it was not very expensive so I did not have high expectations. However, it was excellent! I normally just listen to books when traveiing. This book traveled with me throughout the day until late into the night until I finished it. I could not put it down.

    "not as good as the others in the sequence"

    this story was a bit more wordy than the others in the sequence. I think everything could have been conveyed with less. thus it became a bit boring to me.

    "Boring"

    Boring. Two chapters in the middle were exciting. That’s it. Not good enough for nine hours of listening. Disappointed.

    "Slow and Plodding"

    I have listened to all the other books in this series and have loved them. This book was a stand-out, but not in a good way. It was by far the slowest and most tedious of all. I think it was a combination of the story’s developing at a glacial pace and the narrator’s slow read. He has a tendency to pause overly long in between each piece of dialogue, a practice that drug out the length of the story and constantly reminded me that I was listening to a book, something the other books magically conquered. I enjoyed how all the other books I. The series have been paced carefully but comfortably, unfolding with just the right amount of detail and suspense. Somehow Lost just didn’t follow the same course. I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

    "Meh"

    This was not my favorite in this series but the series does get much better as it goes along. I'm finding that some of the books in this series can be stand alone reads but as always, it is better if you are familiar with the characters. I read this as a buddy read with Mary and she liked it very much.
