Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An alias of prolific bestseller Bob Meyer—whose second novel with Jennifer Crusie, Agnes and the Hitman, is due in August (Reviews, June 4)—Doherty is a bestseller in his own right with his Area 51 books, among others. This terrific follow-up to Bodyguard of Lies continues to track the Cellar, a government organization whose task is to police rogue agents in the CIA, FBI and other U.S. bureaus. Maj. Jack Gant is called in from his South Carolina island home to oversee an investigation involving the abduction of Emily Cranston, daughter of Fort Bragg Special Warfare Center commander Col. Samuel Cranston. The motive for the abduction is revenge, and the perpetrators have been highly trained in how to carry it out—by the U.S. government. As related crimes pile up, Doherty delivers top-notch action and adventure, creating a full cast of lethal operatives armed with all the latest weaponry. Excellent writing and well-drawn, appealing characters help make this another taut, crackling read from Doherty. (Aug.)

I'm a big fan of Robert Doherty's books (pen name for author Bob Mayer) and loved his first book about the mysterious Cellar, an oh so secret agency whose purpose is to police the other alphabet agencies. The first book was BODYGUARD OF LIES which gave the reader two kickass female protags in search of a secret. They travel the world following the clues left behind by a now deceased agent who used the secret to safely retire from the world of shadows and bad guys. En route they must outwit the bad guys who want to get their hands on this secret as well.

LOST GIRLS brings back those two female protagonists who now have new roles to play as operatives of the Cellar. The writing is tighter, the action fast-paced, and the suspense heart-pounding. As good as the first book was, LOST GIRLS surpasses it.

Lost Girls brings in a butt-kicking group of government operatives to find out who is killing and kidnapping innocent young women who are tied to government officials. This isn't my usual YA paranormal read but it's a lot of fun.

I'm a big Bourne Identity fan and this story is along those lines. Its fast paced, filled with action and keeps you turning the pages. Doherty gives you enough information to keep you guessing and trying to figure things out right along with the protagonists.

While Gant is your typical (and likeable) guy spy, I also like the fact that Doherty puts in strong female operatives as well. I actually heard the author speak at a conference (where I bought the book) and he said that when he wrote this and another book with the same characters, publishers weren't interested in tough female spies. Then things became popular, like the TV show Alias and of course Lara Croft was the bomb, and suddenly the publishers thought it was a great idea and the books sold.

The bad guys aren't flat either. They are a good bunch of fellows who go bad after the people they trusted most betray them. While you're not rooting for them, you can understand how they became who they are.

It's a great action yarn, with a good story, fun twists, and enjoyable characters. If you like this spy/government thriller kind of stuff, you can't go wrong Lost Girls.

From the start to the end it is non stop adventure and twists all involving the CIA and military black ops. The Author is extremely knowledgeable in Army tactics and equipment. He truly was Special forces or did very extensive research. Outstanding story from start to end and very hard to put the book down. This is coming from an Army Infantryman sitting in Afghanistan during the time of this review. If this book is captivating enough to take my mind from this place then you will seriously enjoy it relaxing at your house. I highly recommend!

I enjoyed the first of this series, Bodyguard of Lies which introduced Neeley and Masterson. In that book, the viewpoint of the women seemed a little forced at times, but the action was great. This book, Lost Girls, had very believable character development, where we meet Jack Gant and see Neeley and Masterson in their new roles with the Cellar. This book has lots of action and enough to keep you guessing how it will all turn out.
