Product Description

Review

"Bolton rules the world of psychological thrillers" (Nina Sankovitch Huffington Post)

"Ingenious" (Washington Post)

"Nail-biting, spine-tingling, up-till-4a.m.-because-you-need-to-know-how-it-finishes tension!" (fictionfan blog)

"Close-to-the-bone red herrings skillfully strewn across the detectives’ paths, convincing cop-shop procedure, and perceptively drawn secondary characters help push this contemporary crime novel ahead of the pack . . . Bolton looks deep into the lost-soul madness of a killer and makes her vision all too horribly real." (RT BookReviews)

"Bolton sets aside the gothic-tinged atmosphere of her early novels in favor of a more visceral sensibility, exerting immediate and continuing pull by stepping in and out of an unnamed killer’s mind . . . a nail-biting thriller" (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

The twisty, addictive, bestselling thriller from a writer who loves nothing more than to play with your mind . . .

I first came discovered SJ Bolton from a recommendation for " Dead Scared" in Good Housekeeping magazine last year. How fortuitous was that casual perusal of a magazine at the hairdressers, as I have now read all of her books, albeit in the wrong order! I eagerly awaited the release of Like This, For Ever and I wasn't disappointed; definitely up to scratch. Being a romantic at heart, I can't wait for the next book and the progression ( hopefully) of the Flint/Joesbury relationship. I have found the conclusion of all her books incredibly exciting and never has the phrase "page turner" been more applicable.

I can't resist new books, but that means I have to go back to the beginning of the series - and I'll be doing that with this one!
D.I. Dana Tulloch is leading the investigation by Lewisham's Major Investigation Team into the disappearance of five young boys aged between eight and eleven. Two bodies have been found so far, by the Thames. Then the twins are found - like the others their bodies have been drained of blood but otherwise unharmed. A profiler works with the police team, and there are some suspicions that the killer could be a woman.
Detective Lacey Flint is on sick leave, but can't help herself becoming involved in the investigation taking place so near where she lives. Also fascinated is eleven-year-old Barney, her neighbour, who wonders why his dad is always out of the house when the boys go missing. One contributor to the Facebook page seems to know too much about the latest developments in the case.
I couldn't put this down, and suspected all the main characters (and several minor ones) during the course of the story. Though I don't know London well I felt very familiar with the riverside areas by the end of the story, and can add this to the geographical knowledge gained through my love of crime fiction: Edinburgh, Glasgow, South-East Scotland, Yorkshire, Nottingham, the West Country and even Denmark and Sweden!
Definitely five stars - and as this is the fourth of the books featuring Lacey Flint and her team I have three books to read as soon as I can!

S J Boltons first books were each totally different while being equally compelling which is why I have headed this 'originalty'. Even though here recent books have the same characters the story lines are so different and retain that originality. They are also however dealing with what are current concern in real life and this gives a sharp edge to the story line and peoples personal dilemas. Altogether a gripping formula beatifully constructed. (perhaps that should be my heading)

BEWARE!!! Although this is an excellent book as we have come to expect from Ms Bolton, don't make the same mistake I did. I ordered this book thinking it was a new release - the advertising certainly gave that impression - but it is actually the same book as "Like This For Ever" but with a different title, presumably for the American market although this was not mentioned on the website. I now have to go to the trouble of sending it back. Not impressed!

I received a copy of this book from the publishers and this is my honest opinion of the book.

Young boys are going missing around London, their bodies being found days later, the latest, twins, found on a beach laid peacefully next to each other. The police have little to go on, and what they do know is being hampered by interfering TV experts and a crazed contributor to Facebook. Twelve year old Barney thinks that he knows what is happening, and who the killer is. The thought is almost to painful to bear, hiding it from everyone, including next door neighbour Lacey Flint.

This is the third outing for Lacey Flint and we find her still on sick leave following the events in Dead Scared. She is adamant that she will stay out of this investigation but soon finds herself drawn into what is happening. All the while she is fighting her own demons, struggling with what had happened to her previously and her with her feelings for DI Mark Joesbury.

This is more of an ensemble novel, all the main side characters from the first two books in the series are there, getting equal footing with Lacey, and indeed we see more of the development of these characters. The character who gets the most page time seems to be Barney, a boy with special gifts, brought up by his father and searching for the mother he can barely remember.

It took me longer to get into this book than it did Now You See Me and Dead Scared. This may have been because I had read the first two back to back but I don't think I was getting Lacey Flint jaded. I did however find myself flying through the last two hundred pages to the gripping conclusion, the fact that I'd guessed the outcome making it no less gripping.

This is the 3rd major outing for detective Lacey Flint; a character that will grow on the reader and scare them in equal measure. Here she is off sick following possible career ending events in Cambridge - previous novel. Back in London the river Thames flows through this book like a dark and menacing force and something of the dark thriller of book one also resurfaces.
The writing is compact and economical despite being a long book. Sharon Bolton writes her characters well and here demonstrates great skill in capturing a young person's perspective through the eyes of a pre-teenage lad. Poor Barney is a loner and pre-occuppied with searching for his Mother while his world is being turned upside down as a serial killer is active murdering boys of his age. The tension never lets up once the book gets going; you feel despair for the parents and the fear of Barney and his mates who seem helpless to prevent one of their own becoming the next victim. The cleverness of the writing is that Lacey although a Police officer is always on the outside and a degree of mistrust continues among some of her colleagues. This enables Lacey herself even to fall under suspicion as the culprit, but the writing is so good there are credible suspects throughout.
Despite the length this is a quick book to read, short chapters, well paced and character driven. Indeed a real quality of the storytelling is that while lots of material may have been edited in producing the book; Sharon writes whether intentionally or instinctively in such a way that what if left unwritten, unsaid by her characters fills and gives depth to the novel beyond the number of pages.
Happily a new episode is due out in May 2014 which can only add to the standing of this brilliant thriller writer.
