Item Details

Like everyone reading the newspapers these days, 10-year-old Barney Roberts knows the killer will strike again soon. The victim will be another boy, just like him. The body will be drained of blood, and left somewhere on a Thames beach. There will be no clues for London detectives Dana Tulloch and Mark Joesbury to find. There will be no warning about who will be next. There will be no real reason for Barney's friend and neighbor, Lacey Flint, on leave from her job as a London police detective, to become involved...and no chance that she can stay away. With the clock ticking, the violence escalating, and young lives at stake, Lacey and Barney both know they can't afford a single wrong step if they hope to make it through alive. S.J. Bolton, an award-winning author of five novels, delivers her most compelling novel to date, in which a fragile police detective and a courageous, lonely eleven-year-old boy must work together to unmask a killer. Lost provides all of the pulse-pounding suspense, beautifully drawn characters, and intricate plotting thriller fans could hope for--and more. Please note, this title is published in the UK as Like This For Ever.

S J Bolton is an accomplished writer, whose unique styles offers the reader suspense, intrigue, and the flair for the unexpected.
This recent tale was good to excellent, until the end where the story goes from the bizzare to the psuedo Twilight Zone in terms of the; psychology of a child being a killer, prison friend with expertise and wisdom to analyse writings that solve the crime, other uneccessary far reaching scenerios while plaus- ible seem unrealistic. Also, on two separate ocassions Bolton has relied on other book (Jack The Ripper & The Lost Boys) as themes, and/or story lines for her writings. Finally, what parent would allow their 11 year old daughter to go to a sleepover where ther are 5 boys (1,14yrs and 4, 9-11)?

Like This For Ever and "Lost" are the same story. Different titles but the same book ???
One an English publisher the other an American Publisher.
I did enjoy Like This For Ever!

How nice that there's a lesbian couple; but they live hundreds of miles apart; and when they are together, one just pats the other's hand; and out of the blue, one wants to have a baby. The most asexual lesbian couple imaginable.

An uneven writer at best, SJ Bolton's recent thriller is not as good as Now You See Me but definitely much, much better than the boring Dead Scared.
