About The Book
Lost by Leona Deakin There is an explosion at a military ball. The casualties are rushed to hospital in eight ambulances, but only seven vehicles arrive. Captain Harry Peterson is missing.
His girlfriend calls upon her old friend Dr Augusta Bloom, who rushes to support the investigation. But no one can work out what connects the bomb and the disappearance. When Harry is eventually discovered three days later, they hope he holds the answers to their questions.
But he can’t remember a single thing.
Can you imagine that after a bombing you can’t find your loved ones? You saw them alive before the ambulance arrived but then they disappeared!
This is the perfect case for Dr Augusta Bloom, she is fearless and persistent and nothing will stop her to discover what really happened to the partner of her old friend. Ready?
First of all, this is a series, I highly recommend you to start from the beginning, there are some spoilers in this book from the previous one, they are really good and twisted, so believe me when I say that you should start the series from the first book. This was my only concern in this book, if someone wants to start the series with this one there are all the connection and characters information but at the same time you know what happened on the previous, and it was so good!
I love how this author, Leona Deakin, creates the stories, you can’t stop reading and you want to know what really happened. The cases are always original and with some twists that will leave you wanting to know more. I don’t want to spoil much of the story, there’s a mystery and so many questions about the mystery that I will not lie when I say that I spent all night reading it!
I am always surprised how the military people always close ranks when someone is involved, it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad, no one who is not from their circle will never know the truth unless they don’t stop digging! This was more or less the plot of the book, a military man is injured during a bombing, disappears for a few days and when they find him he has lost his memory from the last 4 years and is retained in a military hospital. Don’t say that you are not intrigued by this plot, sounds so good!
Really, if you want to get Lost for a few hours, start reading, it is worth it!
About The Author
Leona draws inspiration for her writing from her own experiences having started her career as a psychologist with the West Yorkshire Police and her successful work in psychology since. Leona was part of a team responsible for designing methods of selection for recruiting and promoting officers from PC to Chief Superintendent. Her role was to create realistic policing scenarios – from personnel issues to large scale incidents (plane crash, terrorist bomb etc) – that could be used to test leadership skills. To do this she spent a great deal of time interviewing and observing officers at various ranks and reviewing cases. This gave Leona an insight into the police culture that helps her to write authentic character interactions in her novels. Leona is now an occupational psychologist and lives with her family in Leeds.
