A BUSTLE BEST BOOK OF THE MONTH TIME MAGAZINE SUMMER READ RECOMMEND Finalist for the International Thriller Writers, Strand Critics, and Barry Award for Best First Novel "A brave, unflinching heroine and brave, unflinching writing add up to an extraordinary debut--highly recommended."--Lee Child A dark, compulsively readable psychological suspense debut, the first in a new series featuring the brilliant, fearless, chaotic, and deeply flawed Nora Watts—a character as heartbreakingly troubled, emotionally complex, and irresistibly compelling as Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander and Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole. It begins with a phone call that Nora Watts has dreaded for fifteen years—since the day she gave her newborn daughter up for adoption. Bonnie has vanished. The police consider her a chronic runaway and aren’t looking, leaving her desperate adoptive parents to reach out to her birth mother as a last hope. A biracial product of the foster system, transient, homeless, scarred by a past filled with pain and violence, Nora knows intimately what happens to vulnerable girls on the streets. Caring despite herself, she sets out to find Bonnie with her only companion, her mutt Whisper, knowing she risks reopening wounds that have never really healed—and plunging into the darkness with little to protect her but her instincts and a freakish ability to detect truth from lies. The search uncovers a puzzling conspiracy that leads Nora on a harrowing journey of deception and violence, from the gloomy rain-soaked streets of Vancouver, to the icy white mountains of the Canadian interior, to the beautiful and dangerous island where she will face her most terrifying demon. All to save a girl she wishes had never been born.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Utterly compelling, rich with voice and psychological insight. The Lost Ones will stay with you for a long, long time after you finish the last page. Perhaps forever.” Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author
“Searing…A gritty, violent read with a tough, idiosyncratic, dryly witty heroine readers will root for even if they wouldn’t want to invite her home.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Offering an intriguing twist on the standard missing-person thriller, Kamal’s debut is raw, violent, and thought provoking.” Library Journal
“Actress and debut author Kamal has penned a believable survivor in Nora, a woman whose relentless struggles many readers will identify with.” Booklist
