Many thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review of ‘Chloe:Lost Girl’ by Dan Laughey.
A missing student.
A gunned-down detective.
A woman in fear for her life.
All three are connected somehow. Detective Inspector Carl Sant and his fellow officers get on the case. But what links the disappearance of a university student,the death of an off-duty police sergeant, and a professorreluctant to help them solve the case?
Their only clue is a sequence of numbers, etched by the police sergeant Dryden on a misty window moments before he breathed his last. Soon it becomes clear that Dryden’s clue has brought the past and present into a head-on collision with the very heart of Sant’s profession.Racing against time, D.I. Sant must find out what’s behind the mysterious events-before the bodies start piling up.
What does TWG think?
I was very impressed by the opening to ‘Chloe: Lost Girl’! The suspense was just leaping off the page and had me very excited to see what else was going to happen in the story.
Did the rest of the book live up to the opening? Yes and no. There were a few things in the book which stilted my enjoyment a little bit, and the fact that there were a few instances where the author forgot to add a little background information to a situation, instead making me feel as though I had missed out a page in the book. Which I hadn’t.
I enjoyed the premise of the book, and I was gripped by the uncertainty and intensity that the author delivered.
All in all, ‘Chloe:Lost Girl’ was a very dark and twisted read which piqued my interest straight away. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next, and whether Chloe continues to be lost.
