What They Are Saying About:

Lost Hours

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.

--APOOO BookClub

Lost Hours is a breathtaking novel by D.K. Gaston. Gaston created an emotionally-charged mystery that really tugs at your heartstrings. You feel the drive and frustration of Joseph as he tries to solve this murder that has plagued his life. Readers won’t be able to flip the pages fast enough as the secrets of this mystery unfold. Gaston did a wonderful job of incorporating multiple characters that were an integral part of the storyline. You will feel every emotion of every character in this story. This novel covers a lot of topics including murder, police corruption and sexual abuse. Lost Hours is an absorbing murder mystery that will leave you guessing until the very end.
--Urban Reviews -- 4.5 out of 5

With an urbanized Hitcockian/Christie-ish feel, the story pulls you into its drama. Twists and turns fill its pages. Although it is somewhat of a melancholy tale, if you enjoy mystery, you should find this an intriguing, though not comfortable, read.
--Huntress' Book Reviews

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.
--The Road to Romance

Author D. K. Gaston develops a tantalising, suspenseful story that draws in the reader immediately and hangs on for the long haul. Well-developed characters and a seemingly impenetrable mystery render Lost Hours a true winner. As the reader cudgels her brain along with detective Joe, we wonder whether the truth will ever be discovered. Lost Hours is a wonderful, curl-up-with story to while away a few hours of the reader's own.
--Euro Reviews

Lost Hours is a wonderfully told story. The story moved at a fast pace and kept me wanting to read more. The author did a great job in developing the characters. I thought that Joseph was a believable character. His challenges were real and his pain was evident. Some of story line, especially the scenes of violence, had characteristics of a Hollywood movie. Despite that, I would definitely recommend this book to other book lovers.

Hello, D.K.:

Actually I have not found it difficult at all moving between mystery and romance fiction.

On the mystery side, I can lean on my criminology background to keep my plots credible and suspenseful. On the romance side, as a romantic fellow myself and happily married man, it is easy to write love stories with happy endings. :>)
