A heartrending thriller about a young boy's hunt for his missing sister, and the dark truths he uncovers in his North Carolina hometown.

The Washington Post - Art Taylor

The young boy at the story's center is a magnificent creation, Huck Finn channeled through Lord of the Flies, and as a detective in his own right he proves as driven and passionate as any mystery fan could hope for…Hart is still far too young for The Last Child to be called a crowning achievement, but the novel's ambition, emotional breadth and maturity make it an early masterpiece in a career that continues to promise great things.
