"The Lost Boys" by Mackenzie Brown, kept me captivated from start to finish. While I grew up in the United States and this book was set in Liverpool in the nineteen seventies, it reminded me of so many of the headlines I grew up reading, it could have happened in Chicago.
Mr. Brown’s account of events surrounding the numerous boys who disappeared over the years, one of which was his only son was nothing short of brilliant.
His sense of place was so firmly planted that this reader felt as if she was actually there. The story-line is intense and will over the years continue to be a book I go back to, for in its pages I am sure I will continue to find new ways to interpret and things that I missed upon the first read.
After reading this book I plan on reading more of Mr. Brown’s books and certainly more that include The Black Knight.
