Earlier this week I was excited to attend the book launch of Claire McGowan’s new book, The Lost.
Her debut novel, The Fall, was one of my favorite books of 2012, so I’ve been really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of The Lost.
The launch party was held at the fabulous Goldsboro Books, just off Leicester Square, London. The place was full to bursting and I was thrilled to get a signed copy of the book.
Set in Ireland, The Lost is the first of a new series featuring forensic psychologist, Paula Maguire.
What the blurb says: “When two teenage girls go missing along the Irish border, forensic psychologist Paula Maguire has to return to the home town she left years before. Swirling with rumour and secrets, the town is gripped with fear of a serial killer. But the truth could be even darker.
Surrounded by people and places she tried to forget, Paula digs into the cases as the truth twists further away. What’s the link with two other disappearances from 1985? And why does everything lead back to the town’s dark past – including the reasons her own mother went missing years before?
As the shocking truth is revealed, Paul learns that sometimes it’s better not to find what you’ve lost.”
Sounds great – I can’t wait to start reading …
