LOST by R. S. Guthrie

LOST by R. S. Guthrie Purchase:

    I will read anything R. S. Guthrie puts out. His writing lures you in and makes you a prisoner of his prose.

    L O S T is the sequel to Black Beast, the five-star debut novel in the Clan of MacAulay series.

    Denver Detective Bobby Mac returns in this intense horror/thriller, set in the northern panhandle wilderness of Idaho. After receiving a phone call from his brother, the Chief of Police in Rocky Gap, Idaho, Bobby Mac travels north to assist in the investigation surrounding two gruesome murders and the abduction of an eleven-year-old girl.

    These two seasoned cops—estranged brothers reunited—will bring all of their experience to bear in a case that threatens not only the safety of a small town, but also the sacred lineage of a family of heroes.

    Like Black Beast, Lost is a well-written nail-biter, showcasing a protagonist who could never be accused of being one-dimensional. Detective Robert MacAulay – a tough as nails, big-hearted fellow who is no stranger to tragedy – is so exceptionally developed that he seems real, adding to the overall suspense of the story because you just don’t want anything bad happening to Bobby Mac.

    There’s an emotional depth to Guthrie’s writing that hooks you by the heart and yanks you headlong into Bobby’s world, and what a harrowing world it is! Missing children, apparitions appearing in the middle of nowhere in their Sunday best, demon possessions, human sacrifices, bloody confrontations between the FBI and the spiritual realm.

    Evil is rampant and only Bobby Mac has the weapon to fight it. One particular chilling scene involves a man who brutally murders his family, Spence Grant. Guthrie forces the reader into Grant’s head, which is not a pleasant place to be. His thought processes resonate so disturbingly authentic that I had to wonder if Guthrie had studied the profiles of actual killers and is giving his readers a glimpse into their minds. Really, it was very creepy.

    That’s it for spoilers! You’ll have to read this good-versus-evil page-turner with a paranormal twist to see how the coolest male sleuth ever goes head-to-head with Black Beast once again! Needless to say, I highly recommend Black Beast and Lost and look forward to the next Clan of MacAulay mystery.

    Review: 

    Be ready to sit for a while because you won’t want to put the book down to do anything else. Mr. Guthrie is a superb storyteller. The many twists and turns he creates will keep you guessing. You will not only want to, but HAVE to, keep turning the page to find out where he’s going to take you next.

    I sincerely hope the character he’s created, Detective Bobby Mac, will be around for a long time to come. I am totally enthralled with this man. Mr. Guthrie has created a Tough yet Sensitive Guy, A Man with a Sense of Humor yet Pure Professional when the occasion calls for it, A Hero to Humanity and yes, a Sexy and Sweet Lover. This man is all that and more.

    I will read anything R. S. Guthrie puts out. His writing lures you in and makes you a prisoner of his prose.
