Libby would do anything for her three-year-old son Ethan. And after all they’ve been through, a holiday seems the perfect antidote for them both. Their hotel is peaceful, safe and friendly, yet Libby can’t help but feel as if someone is watching her. Watching Ethan. Because, for years, Libby has lived with a secret.
Just days into their holiday, when Libby is starting to relax, Ethan steps into an elevator on his own, and the doors close before Libby can stop them. Moments later, Ethan is gone.
Libby thought she had been through the worst, but her nightmare is only just beginning. And in a desperate hunt for her son, it becomes clear she’s not the only one looking for him.
Who will find him first?
I was the BIGGEST fan of Here and Gone so to say I was excitable about the next novel from Haylen Beck aka Stuart Neville would be putting it mildly.
Lost You is excellent once more, a psychological thriller that moves at a perfectly formed pace, keeping you hooked into every single moment of the desperate hunt for a missing child and an emotionally charged back story which informs that event.
You may think you know what’s coming but ultimately there’s no path of least resistance here, it is an edgy narrative that is utterly gripping from first page to heart stopping last. The central premise is cleverly woven into the wider story with thought provoking intelligence whilst still creating a thrill ride of a read which is easily devoured in one sitting.
Loved it. I love a good thriller and I love a good thriller with a dark, rapidly beating passionate heart even more.
