Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Johnny Merrimon has to face things no boy his age should face. In the year since his twin sister's abduction his world has fallen apart: his father has disappeared, and his fragile mother is spiralling into ever deeper despair. Johnny keeps strong. Armed with a map, a bike and a flashlight, he stalks the bad men of Raven County. The police might have given up on Alyssa; he never will. Someone, somewhere, knows something they're not telling.

Only one person looks out for Johnny. Detective Clyde Hunt shares his obsession with the case. But when Johnny witnesses a hit-and-run and insists the victim was killed because he'd found Alyssa, even Hunt thinks he's lost it. And then another young girl goes missing....

    "Must Read"
    If you could sum up The Last Child in three words, what would they be?

    Extraordinary, suspenseful and addictive


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Johnny Merrimon was my favourite character. He demonstrated Incredible devotion, both to his sister and his mum and great courage and persistence looking out for both.


    Have you listened to any of John Chancer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is the first John Chancer performance I have listened to. I was mildly irritated with some of the (what I thought were) exaggerated accents in the dialogue - but this may have just been my Australian ear!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Go with Johnny on his breathtaking journey as he searches for his missing twin sister.


    Any additional comments?

    Night after night I kept listening to this book way past when I should. Just kept telling myself "just one more chapter!"

    "Johnny's Search"

    This is a really enjoyable story of the search by young Johnny for his missing twin sister when everyone else has given up. Whilst some of the story plots and characters were 'unbelievable' I was more than happy to suspend any disbelief because the portrayal of Johnny, his life, his family and friendships and his quest were so compelling. This turned into quite an addictive book and I finished it very quickly. I found the ending very satisfying and was sad to say goodbye to Johnny.

    "Last Child great read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Child to be better than the print version?

    Not read printe version only heard audio version, but great whilst travelling as can still look out window and take in the scenery


    What other book might you compare The Last Child to, and why?

    All John harts books are well written. You get involved with the characters, can really picture where they are as the descriptions are good


    What about John Chancer’s performance did you like?

    Great narrator, clear, amusing, interesting to listen too. Would listen to other books narrated by him.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Connect to the characters, amusing in places, could not wait to be able to listen to my audio book
