Owen Shaw and his “brothers” lost everything, their entire existence erased. Science had robbed he and all the Lost Boys of their memories and their past, but not their future. Hunted by every intelligence agency in the world, they are focused on two goals: find a cure for what was done to them and ensure that the technology that ruined their lives doesn’t get out into the world. Rebecca Walsh might be the key to achieving both. Owen has been studying her closely, living in her building, and he cannot resolve how such a beautiful, giving woman could have helped design the evil process that destroyed his past.
Dr. Rebecca Walsh has dedicated her life to researching the secrets of the mind. Her atmospheric rise in her field was fueled by the horror of watching her mother’s agonizing journey into madness at the hands of a disease with no cure. She vowed to never rest until she finds it. But obsession takes a heavy toll, and when Owen moves into her building she realizes how much of her life she has missed out on. Owen opens her eyes to a whole new world, filled with joy, laughter, and possibly love.
Owen and Rebecca grow closer, unraveling more about each other and the mysteries surrounding her connection to Hope McDonald. As the sinister forces working against the Lost Boys descend on Toronto, secrets long buried are uncovered that could shatter the bonds holding the Lost Boys together and cost Rebecca her life.
Lost and Found is a fast paced mystery/suspense that continues the story of the “lost boys”. Owen lost his memory and he and his team have been desperate to figure out a solution. Rebecca is a research who works for the doctor they suspect caused their memory loss.
Owen is a solid hero. He is struggling with his memory loss and will do anything to help him and his team find a solution. They know they are hunted men but they aren’t going to stop! Owen gets close to Rebecca to gain information but the more he learns about her, he can’t imagine she would have helped create the drug that wiped their memories. I respected Owen for this-often in these types of stories, the man assumes the worst of the woman. It was nice to have a guy recognize that everything he was learning about this woman indicated she wasn’t a bad person.
Rebecca is what I expected of a science nerd. She is a bit quirky, but its not super over the top. Having recently been divorced, she is ‘single and ready to mingle’ as the saying goes. She has devoted so much of her life to her research that she has missed out on experiences. I found her to be a more dynamic character than Owen, who to me, while likable, seemed a bit static and predictable.
The real winner of Lost and Found is the plot. You need to have been invested in the story up til now to fully appreciate how bananas this is getting!! Seriously, in my head, I kind of picture all this like a daytime drama-so many twists, turns, betrayals, and more. Its delicious!
