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 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 4 out of 5 by from "The last child" by John Hart The first novel I’ve read by John Hart. A mesmerizing thriller with memorable characters and an intelligent, thought-provoking plot,”The last child” is one of the best books I’ve read in awhile and bodes well for my 2011 reading. The protagonist is 13 year-old Johnny Merrimon. Johnny’s life was idyllic until his twin sister Alyssa went missing a year ago. Shortly after, his father (whom his mother blamed) also disappears from Johnny’s life. His mother, weak, depressed and financially dependent, turns to a corrupt local businessman for the roof over their heads. She exchanges sexual favors with him for the house and food and due to his influence becomes a drug user. Johnny becomes the adult in the family as his mother’s despondence and weakness make it difficult for her to recover. With childhood a distant memory, Johnny now makes it his mission in life to explore the dark side of his North Carolina hometown to try to find who took his sister. The policeman in charge of Alyssa’s case, Clyde Hunt, has also never let up trying to find Alyssa’s abductor. A single father, he neglects his own child to work on the case that has become his obsession. His motives are complicated. He feels that he should have done more at the time, he has a deep respect and admiration for Johnny and he has longings for Johnny’s mother that have survived since they were in high school together… When another girl goes missing, the failures of the past year’s search make Hunt even more determined to crack this new case thinking that maybe, the missing girl will also lead him to Alyssa. Both heartrending and memorable, Johnny’s story will appeal to all who enjoy a literary thriller. Highly recommended. Winner of The CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2009.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Surprise page burner!!!! This is the first time I have read anything by John Hart. Ordered it through my longtime book club, sounded kind of interesting, trying to make up amount for free delivery. I am a great fan of murder, mystery thrillers. Was I surprised when I started reading this book. It was great. Everytime I thought I had it figured out, there would be a twist, and I would have to start figuring it out all over again. I was up very late for a couple of nights, could not put this book down. If you like John Grisham, you will like this author. The story line was quite complex, but I was still able to keep characters and events straight. Some terrific characters in this story. The ending of this book actually brought tears to my eyes. It has been a long time since a book has done that. I would highly recommend this book to any fan of a good murder mystery thriller. Sensational!!!!
