Searching For The Past
Lost Souls by Jonathan Kellerman and Jessie Kellerman is a contemporary crime novel that had me guessing from the start. It is the third book in the Clay Edison series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Following a discovery of small bones, the hunt is on to find the identity and the truth. The reader joins the characters in the search for two babies of the 1960’s. The cases are similar and run parallel. The one search is for the child, the other for the parents.
Long buried secrets need to rise to the surface.
Families are complicated affairs – we view both discord from within and also harmony.
The plotline was complex and well thought out and executed, with realistic characters eliciting a variety of emotional responses.
Lost Souls would make a marvellous movie. I enjoyed the book and was entertained whilst trying to solve the crimes.
