I was pleasantly surprised when I finally decided to read this book. I'd pulled it from Kindle Unlimited a while back but just couldn't get started on it. Once I did, I got really hooked. Aside from a few spelling/grammar/word choice errors, the story was fast paced and had just that perfect hint of something sinister. It actually felt very Dean Koontz-ish, which is a complement to Amy Cross!

The story centers around a cop who is called to investigate and find a lost boy. The parents are distraug

I have not enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. Amy Cross has fast become one of my favorite writers. I discovered her work just a short time ago, and this is the fourth great book I have read of hers. Her stories are amazing, very well written and have more twists in them than last year's Christmas lights. This is my favorite book of the year so far! (I know, it's only January).

In the small town of Norfolk, people have been disappearing. Lonnie James is the latest

Very Interesting

I enjoy Amy Crosses books. This one is different, people disappear yet no one remembers their existence. The sheriff, a drunk, remembers Lonnie James the latest person, a little boy, o goes missing. The day after Lonnie goes missing no one except the sheriff remembers Lonnie. Even the boy's parrnts don't remember him and deny they ever had a son. So the sheriff can't let go and proceeds to try and solve this mystery. The unraveling of the disappearance makes for a great story. I

Good, just...not my thing

As i said it was a good book, it just wasnt really my type of book.

Dont get me wrong it was good (a little boring at times) but the last....i dont know....10 chapters ruined the book for me. I like to read books that are a little more....realistic for lack of a better term in the ending and this wasnt it

Another good read!

Amy Cross seldom fails to create an excellent book for my reading pleasure. This one had everything from death to otherworldly elements. There are a few unanswered questions but to me thats what makes her stuff interesting. I would recommend this book to my family and friends.

Sheriff Curtis believes he keeps the town's people safe until Lonnie James turns up missing. Catherine James tells Sheriff Curtis that if he doesn't find her son she'll kill him.
A week later he's still trying to find him, but everyone has forgotten who Lonnie James was including his own mother.
This is an intense read, and a real page turner.

A very strange tale!

This was a very well written but, confusing story. It drifted from a dark police thriller, through a kind of sci-fi horror, to a philosophical glimpse at a world of supernatural gods. However, I really enjoyed it!

Loved it but kind of weird

Great story but our there paranormal weird! Definite adult read for paranormal scifi lovers. A father who is a sheriff who can't remember his family existed, and why?

This is wild

So I went into this expecting a ghost story. I got so much more. It’s hard to describe without spoilers, and I really don’t want to give anything away. Nothing like I ever anticipated and the plot is like nothing I’ve read before. I really loved this book, and would love it if I could find something similar.

Pretty good

I read a lot of authors but keep coming back to Amy. I love her imagination and talent. She is unpredictable.

I felt like I was reading a script from one of those old tv shows like The Outer Limits ,it was kinda interesting at first but I got tired of it before long.
