I'm thrilled to be taking part in the Little Boy Found blog tour today. Little Boy Found is an e book only publication published by Quercus.
WHEN HE FOUND HIS LITTLE BOY, NICK THOUGHT THE NIGHTMARE WAS OVER . . . IT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING.
One rainy morning, just after Nick drops off his young son Gabriel outside the crowded school gates, he has a minor collision with another car. The driver won't surrender his insurance details, so Nick photographs the licence plate. When he gets home, he enlarges the shot on his phone and spots something odd about the picture - Gabriel in the back seat, being driven away by a stranger. Nick needs to know what happened to his little boy, but losing Gabriel turns out to be far less terrible than the shock of finding him. Now, to discover the truth, he must relive the nightmare all over again . . . Be warned, this is not another missing child story: what happened to Nick and his son is far more shocking.
This novel is an unusual take on the "missing child" story, it is a psychological drama filled with suspense that will keep you turning the pages.
When Nick drops his eight year old son, Gabriel off at school, his car is hit by another vehicle. The driver does not want to share their insurance details so Nick takes a photograph of the number plate. When Nick returns home he enlarges the picture on his phone and sees something, his son Gabriel in the back seat of the car as he is being driven away by a stranger. But the truth of what happened to Gabriel that day is far more shocking, and as Nick strives to find answers is he prepared to find out the truth about what happened to his son?
The novel is told from two perspectives, Nick and Ella. I really liked both of the stories here, although I found Ella slightly more engaging than Nick. The author made me want to understand how the two stories were connected and there are some shocking revelations. I liked how he intertwined the two tales and it was interesting to see how they would develop as the book progressed. I was sad to say goodbye to Nick and Ella after I finished, I was intrigued to learn more about what happened to Ella after the final page. It's difficult to say too much about the plot without giving away the story but it makes for a riveting read.
This was a captivating read from LX Fox, I would recommend it to fans of psychological thrillers and suspense, I'll be interested to see what he does next. Thank you to Alainna Georgiou at Quercus for sending me a copy to review and for organising the blog tour.
