Blog Tour – Chloe: Lost Girl by Dan Laughey

Edit – Unbeknownst to me, this post didn’t post when it was scheduled and due to some technical issues with my mobile phone and me being away most of yesterday, I was unable to see that this hadn’t been posted. Big Apologies go to Rachel and to the author, Dan for this being a day late. This book was amazing and I was so excited to share this with you.

Albeit late, please see my review below. I hope the fantastic review I am leaving will make up for my lateness. 😀

Blogtour – Wednesday 3rd July 2019

Hi all

Welcome to my stop on this fantastic, thrilling book-tour ride! I was thrilled to be asked to take part in this tour as the book sounded absolutely brilliant and I am so glad that I hopped on board!

The face that there is a 2nd book has seriously had me smiling from ear to ear….and I am not shy to say that I am already part way through it. This story has been exciting with each and every page turn and I look forward to seeing how the next book pans out.

Big thanks as always MUST go to the people who have invited me onto this tour. Shout out to the brilliant blog host, Rachel and the author, Dan Laughey.

I have often mentioned that I love most genres…a book has to grab me from the bio and the book cover and then I am in there. This book intrigued me by both bio and cover….I have not been left disappointed! This book was intense, exciting and a non-stop page turner. Where is Chloe? Who is causing all of these awful crimes? This mystery-thriller had me reading each page greedily and I was so eager to get to the end so that I could find out what was happening.

About the Author

Chloe Lost Girl Dan Laughey-1 Staff Profiles- AET-1 (002).jpg
Dan Laughey is a lecturer at Leeds Beckett University where he teaches a course called ‘Youth, Crime and Culture’ among other things. He has written several books on the subject including Music and Youth Culture, based on his PhD in Sociology at Salford University. He also holds a BA in English from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MA in Communications Studies from the University of Leeds.

Dan was born in Otley and bred in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, a hop and a skip away from the Leeds setting of his Chloe novels.

His crime writing was purely academic to begin with. He’s written about media violence and tackled the age-old concern about television and video games influencing patterns of antisocial behaviour in society. After years of research and theoretical scrutiny, he still hasn’t cracked that particular nut.

He’s also written about the role of CCTV and surveillance in today’s Big Brother world, the sometimes fraught relationship between rap and juvenile crime, football hooliganism, and the sociocultural legacy of Britain’s most notorious serial killer – the Yorkshire Ripper.

All in all, Dan’s work has been translated into four languages: French, Hebrew, Korean and Turkish. He has presented guest lectures at international conferences and appeared on BBC Radio and ITV News in addition to providing expert commentary for The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph.

About 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.

My Review

I loved this book!

The story, The characters, The writing, The mystery that is wrapped within the pages; all helped to make this a very exciting, thrilling read.

I have a read a lot of books over the past 18 months through blog tours, etc and it is always nice to find a story that gets an INSTANT 5 stars! This book blew me away with how fantastic it was. Dan Laughey is not an author I was familiar with before now, but he has now been added to my Fave Authors on Goodreads! Fantastic writing! I cannot fault it at all. It flowed brilliantly and his style helped to create a story that was believable and intriguing. The dialogue and character development was so strong and I found myself reacting to what I was reading with a host of emotions; Anger, excitement, horror, hope…The book was a real rollercoaster that had me riveted from start to finish.

The characters were far from perfect, but each was a breath of fresh air; real and believable. Can I say that I love Detective Carl Sant? He was honest, hardworking and thorough with his crime-fighting skills. There are twists and turns a plenty in this book and I was left wanting more! I will not lie….when I got to the cliff-hanger at the end, I groaned…quite loudly!  This story left me wanting…so much so that I started book 2 within moments of finishing book 1! Check out my review on the 11th July to see what I think!


Brilliant writing! I am so eager to find out the mysteries surrounding this book. It has left me so intrigued and I am so excited to see how this story ends. I have not been this excited about a book in such a long time!

I have rated this book a massive 5 out of 5 stars!

Check out my next review for Chloe: Never Forget on the 11th July!
