On Father's Day 1982, a twelve year old was blamed for the multiple stabbing death of his father. The boy had no memory of doing it. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to two years at a mental hospital. Twenty-three years later, now a private detective and a father, his son is the same age he was when he was accused of murder. This prompts Joseph Hooks to discover what really happened that day two decades ago. Did he kill his own father or did something else happen? As he searches for the truth, he must deal with an uncooperative Detroit police force, rekindle strained relationships with his siblings, protect his loved ones from the threats of a mystery stranger and live with the knowledge his estranged wife is sleeping with another man.

D.K. Gaston's Joseph Hooks is a powerful character. Hooks' drive and determination reaches out of the pages and grabs the reader. The internal conflict to protect his loved ones, while uncovering the past highlights Hooks' strength and compassion. Even though the book's genre is listed as Murder, Mystery, Thriller; I know this book will appeal to science fiction fans. I recommend this book and I especially recommend D.K. Gaston. He is a super talented author.

This novel covers a lot of topics including murder, police corruption and sexual abuse. Lost Hours is a murder mystery that will leave you guessing until the end.
This book will be a great book club discussion. I recommend this book to all readers. I am usually not a murder mystery reader, but this the 3rd book of
author D. K. Gaston that I have truly enjoyed. Thank you Mr. Gaston for widening my reading.
As an adult Joseph changes his name, becoming Detective Joseph Hooks. He is continually haunted by those events that he cannot quite remember. As a result his personal life is a shambles. His wife is unfaithful and his siblings are not too keen on his delving into the past. Joseph also has personal demons he is trying to battle, most specifically alcoholism. However, he is determined to overcome all these issues and find the truth. But will he be allowed to or does someone with something to hide have plans for him?
Lost Hours is an enjoyable, topsy-turvy detective story filled with drama, humanity and pain. I recommend this book to all who enjoy a good detective novel.
