Pressestimmen

"Bolton rules the world of psychological thrillers" (Nina Sankovitch Huffington Post)

"Ingenious" (Washington Post)

"Nail-biting, spine-tingling, up-till-4a.m.-because-you-need-to-know-how-it-finishes tension!" (fictionfan blog)

"Close-to-the-bone red herrings skillfully strewn across the detectives' paths, convincing cop-shop procedure, and perceptively drawn secondary characters help push this contemporary crime novel ahead of the pack . . . Bolton looks deep into the lost-soul madness of a killer and makes her vision all too horribly real." (RT BookReviews)

"Bolton sets aside the gothic-tinged atmosphere of her early novels in favor of a more visceral sensibility, exerting immediate and continuing pull by stepping in and out of an unnamed killer's mind . . . a nail-biting thriller" (Publishers Weekly)

Werbetext

The twisty, addictive, bestselling thriller from a writer who loves nothing more than to play with your mind . . .

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as the first books 6. Mai 2014
Von Mel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was really looking forward to the new Flint and Joesbury story and I wasn't exactly dissapointed with it. It was just not as exciting as the first installations.
I was missing the Lacy Flint and Mark Joesbury I liked so much in the first books, they seemed to have lost a little bit of their particular characteristics in the course of this story.
Nonetheless, there were twists and turns as always and a surprising end (if not as surprising as in the stories before).
All in all a good book and I am waiting for the next one to see if Sharon Bolton can come back to the level of the beginning of the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very suspenseful -- an excellent "take your mind off it" book! 31. März 2013
Von Kristi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This book starts with the discovery of the bodies of two young boys in London. Their bodies' have been arranged in a peaceful tableau on the banks of the fast-rising Thames, in a spot just below the heavily-traveled Tower bridge. Theirs are the fourth and fifth murders attributed to a serial killer who is preying on area boys. Meanwhile, young Barney Richards is supposed to meet his friends at the local skate park, but is running late...

This is a fast-paced London police procedural featuring the characters from Lewisham's Major Investigation Team -- DI Dana Tulloch and her team, as well as DI Mark Joesbury and DC Lacey Flint -- whom readers have come to know from previous books. And there is a lot to know about them. Although their just being alive in this book is a bit of a spoiler, the author does a very nice job of not laying out just exactly *what* happened in those earlier books. However, there are so many references and existing relationships that I really would recommend you read the first three books featuring the characters before you read this one: "If Snow Hadn't Fallen," "Now You See Me," and "Dead Scared."

And they are very worth reading, as is this novel. The characters have been honed and continue to develop in very believable and satisfying ways, and there are plenty of interesting and compelling new characters to meet. The prose is just right -- sparse enough that it never distracts from the story, extensive enough to provide a very good picture of just what is going on. A map of the locales used in the story might be helpful for American readers not intimate with London; Checking the placement and construction of some of the Thames bridges helped me picture the action at times.

The mystery, itself, is played very fair; there are plenty of real clues along with loads of excellent red herrings. Bolton also does a very nice job of integrating technology, including social media, into her plot.

I found this book to be very absorbing and a great diversion. The last book was pretty dark and I wasn't sure I was going to like where it led, but I think Bolton got the tone and progress exactly right in this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bolton truly knows how to keep us entertained 26. April 2013
Von Sebastian Fernandez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is one of those authors that have the ability to keep us turning pages non-stop late into the night. That being said, her novels in this series have not been without faults, and this is no exception, but when it's time to get stock, the final verdict is always positive. In this case, we are presented a story in which the always unstable Lacey Flint is sidelined from the police force as a result of the events in the last book. However, her personal situation and familiarity with a kid that lives next door, led her to get mixed up in a case involving the murdering of nine and ten-year-old boy.

As has usually been the case with the book in this series, the crimes always have some disturbing characteristics. When you add on top of that Lacey's mental problems and her relationship with Joesbury, things get interesting pretty fast. The author clearly has the goal to keep us guessing and engaging us 100%, and in that process, she has no problem with throwing red-herrings left and right. It's all about entertaining, if she has to sacrifice other portions of the experience, she does so gladly. That being said, the problems are not as glaringly obvious as in the previous installment in the series.

I truly enjoyed how Bolton deviated from the sappy romance scenes we got in the last book and focused more on the complex relationship between Lacey and Joesbury. Also, throwing Joesbury's son into the mix was a very good idea. In this book, she did a good job with several other characters too, most notably, Lacey's neighbor, Barney. This boy is very special, he has some truly remarkable observation skills, has OCD, is searching for her mother who he last saw when he was four, and fits the target group of the killer. The character has depth and we come to care about him after a few pages.

We also get to see more about the prisoner Lacey visits and who we met in the first book in the series (won't say who she is in case you have not read that yet). The conversations between the two are remarkable and allow us to see a different side of Lacey. Talking about different sides though, I did feel like the author had a misstep in the way in which she presented the character of Dana in this book. Her actions seem completely out of character and this made her not a believable part of the story.

All in all this is a novel worth reading. It has some flaws, but it is so mesmerizing that you will probably forgive those just like I did. Of course, if you have not read the previous two books in the series, I recommend you go back and read those first, starting with Now You See Me.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lost 15. Mai 2013
Von P. Bergbauer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Lost (Lacey Flint) S. J. Bolton

Young boys are being murdered, Dana Tulloch and Mark Joesbury are investigating and Lacey Flint is drawn to the case and
involves herself to help her young neighbor.
My favorite part of reading books by S. J. Bolton is the characters. They are smart, solid and interesting. Lost was no exception.
Not only were the characters dependable in providing a plot that was thrilling and addicting, they made me want to read faster because a competent police team always makes for a better read. The writing was detailed and satisfying.
This is the third novel with Lacey Flint and as always I recommend reading them in order;
Now You See Me
Dead Scared
Like This, For Ever(UK title)/ Lost (USA title)
If Snow Hadn't Fallen (ebook 93 pages)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Suspenseful, gripping police procedural set in London 14. April 2013
Von Carol S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I've read two books by S.J. Bolton before, one of which I liked and one of which I wasn't crazy about. I am happy to report that I really enjoyed "Lost." "Lost" is third in a series of novels featuring a London detective named Lacey Flint. When the book opens, Flint is on leave from her job, recovering from post-traumatic stress caused by an undercover operation that went bad. Still in touch with her colleagues at the police station, Flint gets sucked into a prominent case involving a serial killer who preys on tween boys. Her colleagues are desperately trying to track down the killer, who appears to be leaving them taunting messages on a Facebook account. At the same time, Flint is fighting her own demons, trying to sort out the emotional turmoil yet drawn inexorably into the case. Flint befriends a young neighbor named Barney, who is obsessed by the murders (which are happening in their section of London). I don't want to say more without ruining any plot twists. Suffice it to say that this is a complex mystery, with plenty of suspense and heartpounding scenes.

Another reviewer has written that Bolton's writing is uneven in that some of her books are very good while others are less effective and somewhat melodramatic. That's definitely my experience, too: the first book that I read was quite good, but I wasn't crazy about the second Lacey Flint book (the direct predecessor to this one), thinking that the plot was way too incredible for me to buy into. Luckily I found that "Lost" was a solid and enjoyable mystery, and I'm liking the characters more as I learn more about them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Third installment in the DC Lacey Flint series delivers thrills, chills, and more 12. Juli 2013
Von Z Hayes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I confess I'm a great fan of author S.J. Bolton's works and have read all of them. There's a high sense of atmosphere, great pacing, and of course in-depth characterizations which enhance the well-thought out plots in all of her novels. This latest book, "Lost" (the title of the U.S. edition) and "Like This, For Ever" (the title of the U.K. edition) is the third in the DC Lacey Flint series of police procedurals. Although it isn't necessary to read the other two earlier installments in the series, I would advise readers new to the series to start off with the earlier two prior to reading this as it provides the backstory to the main characters that I feel are essential to understanding the characters and their relationships better. I'll summarize the essentials of the first two books (without spoilers) so that readers might better appreciate the value of reading the series in order.

In "Now You See Me", the setting is present-day London, where a young police constable, Lacey Flint, encounters a gruesome scene in a ghetto one dark night. A dead woman literally stumbles across her path, setting off a criminal investigation headed by Detective Inspector Dana Tulloch. Flint finds herself being drawn into the investigation despite her best efforts to remain under the radar (due to some secrets in her past). It turns out that this is a Ripper-style murder, and Flint's in-depth knowledge of the Ripper murders makes her a prized asset to the investigation. Flint's life is not made any easier though as she finds herself forced to work alongside a male colleague from a special branch of the force, a man who fascinates and disturbs her in equal measure. Then there are the strange clues left by the killer that reach out to Lacey. What exactly is Lacey's connection to the killer and the crimes?

In "Dead Scared", Lacey Flint returns, a bit more scarred from her experiences working on the case featured in "Now You See Me". She is still emotionally raw but never lets on that she's anything but OK, and when called upon to go undercover on a case by her superior, DI Mark Joesbury, a man for whom she has conflicting feelings, she agrees, not really knowing what she's in for. The case is a puzzling one - over the years, a series of suicides have occurred at Cambridge, which by itself is nothing out of the ordinary except that there appears to be a disturbing pattern. Cambridge resident psychologist, Dr. Evi Oliver realizes that these "suicides" may not be random, and alerts her close friend, DI Dana Tulloch, and eventually Lacey gets put on the case. Lacey is not supposed to investigate, but her natural skills for detection come to the fore and she is soon exploring the connections between the victims, and puts together her own list of suspects, inevitably crossing paths with some very dangerous and evil people, and putting her own life at risk.

Now we come to this latest installment in the series. In "Like This, For Ever" aka "Lost", the titles are both enigmatic as the astute reader soon comes to realize the titles carry hidden meanings as well as obvious ones. The central investigation here revolves around the murders of pre-teen boys, and it soon becomes obvious to DI Dana Tulloch and the Lewisham Major Investigation Team that a serial killer is at work. But the case baffles her and her team - post-mortem of the bodies indicate no sexual interference, there's hardly any violence, but the children appear to have lost massive amounts of blood. What is the killer's motive, and is it a he or a she?

Meanwhile, DC Lacey Flint, still recovering from the horrors of her undercover misadventures in "Dead Scared" is lying low, licking her wounds, and is on long-term leave from the MET. She is required to undergo psychiatric counseling and the chapters are interspersed with Lacey's counseling sessions which reveal her mental state, although it is in her interactions with a prison inmate that truly reveals her vulnerability and true feelings. Flint is steering clear of DI Mark Joesbury who elicits all sorts of conflicting feelings in her, and the pair obviously have unresololved issues between them. Then there's a pre-teen boy named Barney who is Lacey's neighbor. Barney seems to be a lonely child with an academic for a father and a mother who left them ages ago. Barney yearns to see his mother and spends whatever money he can spare putting out ads to locate his mom. He is also in with a group of boys of varying ages who take a keen interest in the murdered boys' case and who, despite the dangers, start exploring the streets and rivers under cover of night, hoping to uncover clues that might help them solve the murders. When they discover the body of a dead child, the children realize they might have gone a little too far in their amateur sleuthing, and Barney makes a chilling discovery that has him confused and very, very afraid.

This third story in the series is wonderfully-written with hardly a misstep. I thought it was the best written of all three stories in the series and that's saying a lot since I absolutely loved Now You See Me. Lacey's emotional yo-yoing has become an integral part of the storyline and at times I do wonder how she conveniently appears to get enmeshed in these horrible cases, without much effort on her part. But it is all done credibly and the narrative keeps moving forward with thrilling, nail-biting scenes, especially when it focuses on Barney and his night-time exploits.

Barney is one of my favorite characters in this story. He is very young yet astute, intelligent, and a bit of a mystery. Prone to OCD-like compulsions (this is a boy who feels he absolutely must straighten out the boys' locker room if he is the last to leave, does laundry in methodical fashion, and is a neat freak in general), Barney also experiences strange lapses that causes him to 'lose' time. His yearning for his missing mother is achingly portrayed that I genuinely sympathized with his plight and felt so sorry for this sad, lonely soul. Bolton has grown from strength to strength in her writing and her characters in this novel have been developed with care and deliberation.

The character of DI Dana Tulloch also gets more of an in-depth exploration in this installment. The case is beginning to get to her, and it shows in her dealings with her team. The fact that the case deals with the murders of innocent children seems to have shaken DI Tulloch to her very core, and she unravels bit by bit as the police appear no closer to figuring out who the murderer is.

There is so much to appreciate in this well-written police procedural - a great sense of atmosphere and setting which is a hallmark of Bolton's writing, excellent pacing which made reading this quite substantial book a breeze (less than two days), nail-biting suspense, and insightful characterizations that enabled me to understand the key players with more depth than I've found in some other thrillers. I highly recommend "Lost" aka "Like This, For Ever" to fans of well-written crime thrillers, and can't wait till Ms. Bolton releases her next novel.
