about

Er sucht verzweifelt seine Schwester. Er entdeckt die grausamen Verbrechen einer ganzen Stadt. Er ist völlig auf sich allein gestellt. ER IST ERST 13.

Es ist ein Jahr vergangen, seit die 12-jährige Alyssa verschwunden ist. Ihr Zwillingsbruder Johnny hat sich nie einsamer gefühlt. Sein Vater hat die Familie kurz nach dem Verschwinden der Tochter im Stich gelassen, seine Mutter flüchtet sich in eine Beziehung zu einem Mann, den Johnny verachtet. Der zuständige Detective will den Fall nicht schließen, obwohl seine eigene Familie an dieser Obsession zerbricht. Als ein zweites Mädchen verschwindet, weiß Johnny, dass er die beiden Mädchen finden muss. Dieser Junge ist ein moderner Huckleberry Finn und ein Detektiv, wie man ihn sich als Thriller-Leser nicht besser wünschen könnte. Dabei zeigt John Hart nicht nur Johnnys abgrundtiefe Einsamkeit, sondern erzählt eine enorm spannende Geschichte.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem IAN FLEMING STEEL DAGGER als bester Thriller des Jahres!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpected ending. Good read Interesting and captivating. End with a bit of a twist. Thought the detective work was light and uncomprehending. As a reader I thought of more things the detective could have done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Child Not normally the type of book I read but it was excellent! The whole time reading this I felt I could actually picture the characters. Twists and turns I did not expect and couldn't help but feel for the boy. This would make an excellent film. I look forward to reading another from "John Hart",

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Child Just started reading this author after reading Iron House and loved this book as well. Twists and turns, emotional roller coaster and an ending I didn't see coming! Highly recommend this great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The last Child This was a very good book. I found it entertaining and one that kept my interest all the way through. Well written, descriptive with multiple characters and a plot that twisted it's way through the entire book. If you like mysteries, give this one a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!! Don't let the first chapter discourage you, this book is fabulous! I am immediately purchasing the other books by John Hart. Even though the main character is a 13 year old boy the story is very much an adult one. The characters are well developed, the story has twists and turns and a very unexpected ending. I loved it. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put It Down! I found my new favorite author! This book captured my full attention before I finished the first chapter - I was hooked. Good thing I was on vacation because I literally read the book in one day. It was hard to put it down to join the family for meals and then went right back to it. There were twists and turns in the story and it was impossible to predict the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly Enjoyable What a great discovery! I received an ARC and was pleasantly surprised, as I had never read this author before. It is a fast-paced page turner that I could not put down. Just when I thought I had it figured out...guess again!! Thoroughly enjoyable for anyone who likes a little mystery combined with suspense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! I loved this book, usually I can figure out who did what and why early on in a book, but this mystery had me completely stumped, which made the story all the more suspenseful and I only put it down out of sheer necessity and returned back to it as soon as possible. I am really looking forward to this author's two other books which I have also purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Compelling Read...What A Ride!!! Wow, what an edge-of-your-seat read this was!!! This is the first John Hart novel I've read and think I'll look up his other books as well. Johnny Merrimon is only 13-years-old but sets out to find his twin sister, Alyssa, who was abducted a year ago. Disappearing at all hours of the night and at times for a day or so, go completely unnoticed by his mother who is wallowing in despair and being fed drugs and booze by her boyfriend Ken Holloway. Detective Hunt has been totally anguished for a year, taking Alyssa's unsolved abduction to heart and making it personal. He doesn't sleep at night, pouring over the files again and again and again and in the process, ignoring his own teen-age son's needs. Johnny is tired of waiting for the police to find his sister and sets out on his own, mapping out the most dangerous of criminals and sneaking around their homes looking for signs of his sister. But even Dectective Hunt doesn't realize just how far Johnny will go to find her and what turns out to be a most compelling and sinister conclusion will rock you off your feet. This is a definite read for anyone who loves mystery/thrillers!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what it's all about! 'The Last Child' was recommended to me by a Chapters employee and he didn’t steer me wrong. The book has all the great characteristics of a great read: fast paced, unexpected twists, and characters that leap from the page. I ripped through this book with an unbelievable anticipation. It was one of those books that you just can't put down and in the end you wished there were more pages to read. Enjoy! Dwayne www.dwaynekavanagh.com
