Little Boy Found by L.K. Fox (Christopher Fowler)

Little Boy FoundLittle Boy Found by L.K. Fox
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an interesting book. The blurb is right: it is different to most ‘abducted child’ storylines and it does have a cracker of a twist quite early on, with many more to follow. While I worked out one of the twists, most of them were pretty surprising and I really liked the ending.

The problem, however, was the writing – quite a lot was really drawn out – and the over-reliance on some hella-contrived coincidences! I am amazed that this came from the same person who brought us the rich detail and wonderful dialogue of the Bryant & May books and, although this story has some good twists, I do prefer some of his other work.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quercus Books for the ARC of Little Boy Found.
