Publisher's Summary

Lizzy pulled the covers over her head. Then she realized what was being dragged behind the person with the torch. She rammed her fist into her mouth to stop herself from screaming.

For decades the Moore Asylum was home to the forgotten children of Brooklyn Bay. But ever since a scandal forced its closure, the abandoned building has cast an imposing shadow. Until now - when an elderly man is found dead, his body strapped to an ancient gurney.

Detective Lucy Harwin, still reeling from a previous case that ended in the devastating murder of a mother and her child, finds herself on the trail of a killer ruthlessly fixated on avenging the asylum's wrongs.

What disturbing secrets lie within the asylum's walls? Together with her partner, Detective Mattie Jackson, Lucy begins to unearth its terrible history and the horrors endured by the vulnerable children.

As the attacks escalate and a woman is murdered on her own doorstep, Lucy is forced into a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a twisted individual. But can Lucy stop a murderer with nothing left to lose?

An absolutely terrifying and gripping thriller that will chill fans of MJ Arlidge, Angela Marsons, and Rachel Abbott to the bone.

    "Interesting"

    Enjoyed the twists and un expected turns. Good one to listen to while doing other activities. Doesn't require full attention.

    "Helen Phifer has gained another fan."

    I read a review where the reviewer said that she\he knew who the killer was from the start, but I don't agree. I was surprised to find out who the killer was. Excellent read.

    "The lost children"

    I found the book very interesting and hard to put down! Story was very well written and no problem relating to the narrator. I would recommend this book to any one who like thrillers! I also like the accents of the narrator. Was hesitant at first but followed it no got used to the accents.

    "Fantastic Debut"
    Would you listen to The Lost Children again? Why?

    I wold not listen to it again, only because once i have read a book i have read it, so i know who the 'baddie' is!! i move straight on to the next book


    What did you like best about this story?

    i enjoyed how it kept flitting between the past and present and enjoyed the chemistry between the 2 main characters, i am hoping this develops further in the series


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    none in particular it was an all round good read, it kept me interested all the way through


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely could of easily sat and read this book in one sitting alas my schedule does not allow for this


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic debut by this authr, i look forward to reading more in the series and seeing the characters develop, hopefully the 2 main characters get together!!! Narration however was good, but a bit wishy washy, an injection of excitement in her narriation wouldnt go a miss.
