Every Second Lost by Dylan Lawson
  

Lovereading view...

A bad accident and a long rehab shaped the life of Elias Hawkes who works as an accident investigator for insurance companies. He is very good at his job but he is a fragile, damaged man whose brain injuries, if affected by stress or anxiety, could erupt causing seizure and worse. Into his life walks the girl of his dreams who was sitting next to him seventeen years earlier at the time of his accident. She needs his help to find her missing daughter. A tale where teenage angst, secrets and lies hide behind the façade of happy family life in LA. It reads almost as if written with a television film in mind, at times rushed, certainly towards the end, so a nice easy read.

If you like Dylan Lawson you might also like to read books by Chris Ewan, Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay.

Synopsis

Every Second Lost by Dylan Lawson

Gripping and mesmerising from the first to last page, Every Second Lost is a thriller to challenge the best from master storytellers Linwood Barclay and Harlan Coben. Elias Hawks' world changed for ever when, as a teenager, he crashed his car and woke, six weeks later, to find he had lost the girl of his dreams and very nearly his life. Seventeen years later, all Elias has left is his career as an accident investigator and a ticking time bomb in his head from the traumatic brain injury he suffered. But then the girl reappears out of the blue to tell him that her daughter is missing and Elias finds himself caught up in an increasingly deadly search for answers. With his health already hanging in the balance, Elias will have one last chance to make amends for the past and one last chance to find the truth, even if this time it means paying for it with his life...
