Summary

Thirteen-year-old Johnny Merrimon has to face things no boy his age should face. In the year since his twin sister's abduction his world has fallen apart: his father has disappeared, and his fragile mother is spiralling into ever deeper despair. Johnny keeps strong. Armed with a map, a bike and a flashlight, he stalks the bad men of Raven County. The police might have given up on Alyssa; he never will. Someone, somewhere, knows something they're not telling.
Only one person looks out for Johnny. Detective Clyde Hunt shares his obsession with the case. But when Johnny witnesses a hit-and-run and insists the victim was killed because he'd found Alyssa, even Hunt thinks he's lost it. And then another young girl goes missing....

Last Child great read

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Child to be better than the print version?

Not read printe version only heard audio version, but great whilst travelling as can still look out window and take in the scenery

What other book might you compare The Last Child to, and why?

All John harts books are well written. You get involved with the characters, can really picture where they are as the descriptions are good

What about John Chancer’s performance did you like?

Great narrator, clear, amusing, interesting to listen too. Would listen to other books narrated by him.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Connect to the characters, amusing in places, could not wait to be able to listen to my audio book

Any additional comments?

A thriller and a literary novel in one

Best book I've read in ages. So evocative of rural usa and character portrayals are interesting and feel so real. Having said this is a thriller and a page turner but feels like a literary novel as well and has some of the feel of to kill a mocking bird about it
