What the bloggers and reviewers thought

Linda Strong Book Reviews

The plot is well crafted, with deftly drawn characters. The mystery starts at the very beginning and remains suspenseful until the very end. Although this is the 7th in the series, this is easily read as a stand alone. I highly recommend picking up the earlier books … Swift is a multi-layered character that is not easily forgotten.

Beyond the Books

A jam packed story that kept me glued to the book, fast paced and, as always, a great read. Thanks to Joffe books for the ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

Bookish Jottings

A fabulous crime novel from a very talented writer, Her Lost Sister is a top-notch thriller fans of the genre will not want to miss.

Sue Wallace

A Brilliant read. Couldn’t put it down. Loved the story and some of the characters. Couldn’t guess who the baddy was.5*.

Shalini’s Books and Reviews

The writing had depth and built up the suspense with a surety. Suspects were many who wanted the sisters dead, the author’s broad strokes showed the deeper links to them. They were quite complex, and I was left guessing.

Black Books Blog

The story has enough twists and a couple of red herrings thrown in, which keeps the book interesting and, although the start was a bit slow, the story soon got into the case and had me hooked.

The Word is Out – Alysons Reviews

It’s a great story with loads of red herrings and trails that lead nowhere, and Ty has to run each one to ground doggedly in his search for the truth. Well written, great characters and an ending that surprised me very nicely!

My Review

I do love the Tyrone Swift series it is different in that it is a PI solving the cases that the police couldn’t and because he is a PI he doesn’t have access to the information the Police do and therefore has to resort to good old fashioned detective work talking to people and trawling through the information he does have.  They make for a very intriguing read and Her Lost Sister is another brilliant addition to the series.

Two sisters on a ferry one stormy night.  One is found drowned the other with a debilitating brain injury.  Because they are relatives of Tyrone he agrees to investigate and find out what happened.  The investigation takes him on a twisty turny journey through the life of Kelly, a recovering alcoholic who left behind her several people with very good reason to want her to come to harm but is that enough for them to kill?

Several possible attackers and only 2 people know the truth one is dead and the other has amnesia.  Tyrone has his work cut out.  To add to his troubles he has his daughter to take into account and the ongoing situation with Oliver plus a very stormy relationship with Nora.

A lot going on and even more to keep the pages turning.  This is a brilliant read that will appeal to all readers of Crime Fiction.


Tyrone Swift is an ex-police detective who now works privately. He’s survived a stabbing and his fiancée running off with another man. Swift’s personal life is complicated, to say the least.
