BOOK REVIEW: THE FORGOTTEN
BY MARIAH STEWART

We hope you enjoy this book review by Tina Avon.



I have read most of Mariah Stewart's books. Forgotten is an out of series book, but was as engrossing as any of her other books.

In Forgotten, psychopath Sheldon Woods has kidnapped a number of boys - what adds to the grisly scene is that nobody is exactly sure how many and where there body lies and this situation will set the scene for this extremely dark, exciting and disturbing novel.

Stewart manages to create a tension filled storyline - and it is obvious that she has based her Sheldon Woods character on a combination of real life psychos!!!! Woods is a very well created character, spooky and disgusting and he was the central plot for me, because of this character - the novel worked.

The interaction between James Cannon, who was the initial attorney who represented Woods, and the FBI Agent, Portia Cahill was well drawn and they worked well together.

Stewart always manages to write extremely broody novels. With her apt and vivid descriptions, you could almost feel yourself talking with Woods - practically wanting to beg him to tell you where the bodies are buried and at the same time, you wanted to run away from him AND kill him with your bare hands.

This novel is fairly descriptive and the subject matter is very sad, so it is a difficult read at times, however, it is extremely well plotted and if you are looking for a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat - then get this book.
