    A disappointing follow-up

    I absolutely loved Leona Deakin’s ‘Gone’ and so I was very excited to receive the ARC for the follow-up story ‘Lost’. It was perhaps my high expectations of this book which contributed to its downfall but I was really disappointed. The whole story felt so far-fetched - I had my qualms with the first book that psychologist Bloom and ex-secret service agent Marcus seemed to be able to gain access to things that didn’t seem possible. This book takes this to the extreme and the part where the police and government were shocked at the pair finding out that Harry was missing from the hospital and not seeming that bothered about investigating this further just seemed so unrealistic. I didn’t really understand why people would have told them certain things either. I liked the beginning of the plot; the idea of a man disappearing from a bombing and then turning up at a different hospital days later with new wounds was intriguing and got my attention. The plot after this point got extremely confusing and I struggled to follow what was going on in places – I hadn’t even caught that a character had been taken abroad at one point. Seraphine is back but her character wasn’t as interesting as she had been in the first book – it felt like her personality had taken a transplant. Overall having enjoyed ‘Gone’ so much, ‘Lost’ was a massive disappointment with unrealistic and confusing plot. Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK & Transworld Publishers – Black Swan for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Intelligent thriller

    This was a fantastic follow on from Gone however if you haven’t read that it does work fine as a standalone but does features spoilers about Gone so ideally best to read both in order. This is very pacy read, twisty and definitely not short of action. The characters are intelligent, very good at what they do but still flawed which makes them people you want to read about. The story has a lot of extremes but they feel believable and adds to the unexpected in this. It’s hard to guess ahead and keeps you well on your toes but it’s also very engrossing.
