Staff favourite for July

The novel reads like a masterly Whodunit, but it’s really a What Happened Here? Carol Drinkwater’s THE LOST GIRL is suspense fiction at its finest. History, drama and romance unravel from multiple perspectives and time frames.


The story rises above sentimentality because of its structural strength: both the regular changes in point of view and the systematic doses of adrenaline allow the reader to travel closely along with the characters. One element that makes the story enthralling is the rapid jumps between Paris, London and the middle east. At the same time, the author skillfully weaves in and out of the lives of several characters and their timelines.
