Will Evil Triumph Over Good??? Not As Long As Bobby Mac Is On The Case: Be ready to sit for a while because you won't want to put the book down to do anything else. Mr. Guthrie is a superb storyteller. The many twists and turns he creates will keep you guessing. You will not only want to but HAVE to keep turning the page to find out where he's going to take you next. I sincerely hope the character he's created, Detective Bobby Mac, will be around for a long time to come. I am totally enthralled with this man. Mr. Guthrie has created a Tough yet Sensitive Guy, A Man with a Sense of Humor yet Pure Professional when the occasion calls for it, A Hero to Humanity and yes, a Sexy and Sweet Lover. This man is all that and more. I will read anything R. S. Guthrie puts out. His writing lures you in and makes you a prisoner of his prose.

Officially one of my most favorite writers now, R.S. Guthrie scores big with Lost and tucks another winner for the Clan of MacAulay under his belt.
Like Black Beast, Lost is a well-written nail-biter, showcasing a protagonist who could never be accused of being one-dimensional. Detective Robert MacAulay—a tough as nails, big-hearted fellow who is no stranger to tragedy— is so exceptionally developed that he seems real, adding to the overall suspense of the story because you just don’t want anything bad happening to Bobby Mac. There’s an emotional depth to Guthrie’s writing that hooks you by the heart and yanks you headlong into Bobby’s world, and what a harrowing world it is! Missing children, apparitions appearing in the middle of nowhere in their Sunday best, demon possessions, human sacrifices, bloody confrontations between the FBI and the spiritual realm. Evil is rampant and only Bobby Mac has the weapon to fight it. One particular chilling scene involves a man who brutally murders his family, Spence Grant. Guthrie forces the reader into Grant’s head, which is not a pleasant place to be. His thought processes resonate so disturbingly authentic that I had to wonder if Guthrie had studied the profiles of actual killers and is giving his readers a glimpse into their minds. Really, it was very creepy.
That’s it for spoilers! You’ll have to read this good-versus-evil page-turner with a paranormal twist to see how the coolest male sleuth ever goes head-to-head with Black Beast once again! Needless to say, I highly recommend Black Beast and Lost to an adult audience and look forward to the next Clan of MacAulay mystery.

This is the second novel in the Macaulay Clan novels by fantastic author R.S. Guthrie. More Bobby Mac adventures. I gave it 5 penguins.
Black Beast, the first book in the series, was so good that obviously I was really looking forward to reading the second book in the Bobby Mac Series. And I am very happy that my waiting for the book didn’t disappoint me. This book is so good that it was really hard to put it down every night to go and have some sleep. The characters are so well described and their personalities so well developed, that you feel them as being very alive. Bobby Mac is one of those heroes that you cannot forget, one of those characters that will be forever in your mind, wanting to read more about him and his whereabouts. Since this is a book about the battle between the good and the evil, we have good characters and bad ones. You will be surprised by all of them. As for the plot, it just flows effortlessly from the beginning to the end. You get so hooked on the story that it is as if you were there, so good it is the power of the words. Rob is a master of suspense. His words and the story keeps you glued to the chair, you just need to go on reading, to know more, to see if the ending is going to be what you expect or a completely unexpected one. And you don’t get disappointed. And now I am quite looking forward to read the third book in the series. I declare myself a Bobby Mac fan. I declare myself a Rob Guthrie fan.
