The Last Child by John Hart

I finished a few books in September but I am way behind on the reviews so my next few reviews are from September.

The Last Child by John Hart
Rating: 3/5 Stars

Pub. Date: March 2010
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Format: Paperback, 432pp
ISBN: 0312642369

Alyssa Merrimon went missing a year ago as no good leads were ever found. Johnny, Alyssa's brother, has not given up the hunt for her and continues to search the neighborhoods for signs of Alyssa's captor. Detective Hunt, the cop assigned to Alyssa's case feels responsible for keeping an eye on Johnny and his mother whose lives have been destroyed by the disappearance of Alyssa. When another girl is taken close to the one year anniversary of Alyssa, Johnny is even mor
e vigilant to catch the person responsible for both of these disappearances. What Johnny finds in his search puts him in danger and leads the investigation to disturbing results.

I found some of the spots in this story to be a little slow but the idea's in this book felt completely original. This is My first by John Hart and I would give him another try for sure.

This book fits the following Category/Challenges for me:
  • Hogwarts Reading Challenge (Defence Against the Dark Arts)
  • Thriller and Suspense Reading Challenge
  • New Authors Challenge
  • Monthly Mixer Mele Challenge
