Lost Connections by Jim Ody #BookReview #QuestionMarkPress #5*

What would you do if the most important person to you was kidnapped?

There is something in the cellar of the large country house, and someone wants it so badly they’ll take your daughter for it. The cellar has been locked for years. Your eccentric father disappeared long ago, taking with him the hidden secrets of the house. Your father now presumed dead, the house is yours, and to get your daughter back you must uncover the past no matter how painful it might be.

Eddie and his band of unlikely helpers must put their differences aside, and come together solve the mystery. But there is a huge secret that his father never spoke about. One worth dying for. And one that will not only affect Eddie and his family, but the whole of mankind.

But what’s in the cellar?

Great Crime Story & Fabulously Entertaining!

A great mix of crime, humour – and even a touch of romance!

Eddie’s father disappeared some years ago and has been long since declared dead. He left behind something which others seem to be desperate to get their hands on but Eddie knows nothing about and they kidnap his daughter as leverage. Instructed not to go to police, Eddie enlists the help of his rag-taggle group of friends. Can they find this unknown item in time to trade it for Daisy?

What a smashing read! Even in the darkest moments, there is subtle humour. The characters are individual works of art, each more entertaining than the last. A good story made even better by this skilled author. It’s refreshing to finally come across a female character who has watched the crime programmes and picked up the tricks that every reader knows about and wonders why characters don’t! Then there’s the house – who wouldn’t want to live there? I recently watched Sarah Beeny’s latest show about building a new family home in the country and they planned to have hidden doors and secret passages; she could pick up so many brilliant ideas just from reading this book! Fabulously entertaining and so very enjoyable, this has to be given all five stars.

My thanks to the author for my copy of his novel; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

For 10 years Jim wrote for a number of websites reviewing and interviewing bands in his own unique way, as well as contributing dark poems and comedic features.

He writes dark psychological/thrillers that have endings that you won’t see coming, and favours stories packed with wit. If you look closely, all of his books are connected…

He has written 12 books, released and re-released by a number of publishers. He has also contributed to over a dozen anthologies. He’s the author of the popular Hudson Bell series, and his new book ‘Little Miss Evil’ will be released on Halloween 2020. Look out for his book ‘The Crazy Season’ which is due out early 2021!

Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd. When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife and three beautiful children in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
