LOST by SJ Bolton

Lost is a mystery and very hard to put down.  Barney is a young boy who is trying to find his mother.  His father seems to leave him alone quite a bit.  Barney is able to find things that are hidden and at times has blackouts of time that is lost to him.  He has friends he skates with each evening until someone starts killing 8 - 11 year old boys.  Just Barney's age.  He knows his father is usually gone about the time these killings happen but he does not want to believe it would be his own dad.  When clues begin pointing to Barney's father he can no longer keep it to himself.  His friend, an adult, who lives next door happens to be a cop on leave due to injuries suffered in a previous incident, so Barney confides in her.  Lacey Flintbecomes involved as does the whole police force after a son of their own is missing.  Very good book and many underlying tales.  I would recommend it.
