Today I am very excited to be opening the blog tour my Steve Parker’s new book The Lost Children, which is being published by Joffe Books and today the publication day.
About the Book
Discover a crime thriller full of shocking twists by one of the most exciting new authors you’ll read this year.
An elderly African man is found dead in the street, shot through the head. The killing has the hallmark of a professional assassin.
Dumped in a waste bin next to the dead man is the dismembered torso of a child.
On his first day back at work,
disgraced Detective Superintendent Ray Paterson finds himself teamed up again with newly promoted Detective Inspector Johnny Clocks.
Within days they know who committed the murders and why,
but are left reeling when they are ordered by the government to release the child’s killers.
Detective Inspector Johnny Clocks
is a foul-mouthed, working-class officer. He grew up surrounded by rogues and villains to become a first-class thief taker with the Met police. However, his childish attitude has short-circuited his career and he spends his days antagonising as many people as he can.
This is the second book in what looks like a very exciting and gruesome series. Even though it is book 2 in the series it can be read on it’s own, although book one was brilliant so I would recommend reading that one as well.
If you have read book 1 then you will know Steve isn’t afraid to use bad language and include graphic scenes in his books, and this one is no different so be warned the is bad language, I counted over 10 swear words in the prologue alone, but they fit perfectly within the situations they are used, plus swearing in books has never bothered me.
The book starts off with a bang, or my correctly a sniper shot and uzi fire, and never slows down from there.
This book covers some very dark situations and covers some dark areas, which most people wouldn’t dare tread.
I really loved the chemistry between the two main detectives, and the way everyone treated Ray after what happened in book 1 is brilliant and, I personally think, quite apt considering everything that happened.
The book kept me hooked throughout with all the investigations, interference from above and the way Paterson and Clocks interacted with each other also kept me entertained throughout all the gruesome storyline.
This is a brilliant book and I can’t wait for book 3 to come out later this year (hopefully)
