Reader Comments

I really enjoyed this book and would love to see it do well.
Dark, charismatic with a psychological twist. I was hooked from the first page.
Great Noir.
Excellent read.
The tone menace around the corner leads to dog-eared corners. This is a terrific book.
"One Lost Summer" is such an awesome read! At first you believe the protag, then you wonder about him, and then comes the chilling ending and you KNOW him... Because it is so well crafted and the voice and style so fine, I would love to see this one in the winner's circle. Best of luck to you, Mr. Godwin!
excellent thriller and analysis of consumer culture and its consequences
Love Godwin's work.
Fantastic novel! One of the best of the year. Godwin always delivers!
