A gripping, white-knuckle survival story set in the unknown depths of the Amazon jungle, When We Were Lost explores the razor-thin line between life and death, and what it really means to be alive.

JIMMY Patterson who published this novel, also published my all time favorite book, Stalking Jack the Ripper so I obviously had high hopes for this book. Most of the stuff I've read from Patterson's Imprint has been very good or at the very least, mediocre. I think the reason I ...more
