Lost Hours by D.K. Gaston is an enjoyable journey into old-school detective noir. Joseph Valentine's father was stabbed to death in the early eighties and he does not have a clue what happened to him. What he does know is that he was found standing over his father with the death weapon in his hand with no memory of what occurred. Though a child at the time of the murder, his father's death haunts him for years, causing him to become estranged from his family. He vows that one day he will find out what occurred and solve the mystery surrounding the murder that haunts him.

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.

Road to Romance
Lost Hours is an exciting murder mystery with a twist at the end that you don’t see coming. The beginning starts off a bit slow, but around chapter 6 it picks up and so does the list of suspects that Joseph thinks really committed the murder that he was convicted of. This book is an easy read, but definitely graphic and deals with not only murder but other adult situations. I would recommend this book to anyone who is over the age of 18 and enjoys a good murder mystery.
