Dan Laughey : Chloe: Lost Girl

Today I’m pleased to be hosting a stop on the blog tour for Chloe: Lost Girl. My review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the blog tour and for my copy of the book.


A missing student. A gunned-down detective. A woman in fear for her life. All three are connected somehow.

Detective Inspector Carl Sant and his fellow officers get on the case. But what links the disappearance of a university student, the death of an off-duty police sergeant, and a professor reluctant to help them solve the case?

Their only clue is a sequence of numbers, etched by the police sergeant Dryden on a misty window moments before he breathed his last. Soon it becomes clear that Dryden’s clue has brought the past and present into a head-on collision with the very heart of Sant’s profession.

Racing against time, D.I. Sant must find out what’s behind the mysterious events – before the bodies start piling up.


I was drawn into Chloe: Lost Girl from the very beginning. It is slightly slower paced than the crime novels I am used to, but there is still a great level of tension created by the intrigue in the novel. I was very interested in how the three cases were linked and this kept me turning pages to try and figure out the answers.

Chloe:Lost Girl is set in Leeds. As this is my home city, the locations in the novel have a very familiar feel to them and it was thrilling to see them brought to life by the author. I am no stranger to the 33 bus route and I was very surprised that it had such a prominent place in the novel!

I am reviewing Chloe: Never Forget on my blog next week and the ending has set the sequel up brilliantly. I look forward to spending more time with Sant and his team and seeing where the next novel takes them.

Chloe: Lost Girl is available from Amazon.
