Lost Souls is a work of fiction penned by author J. T. Bishop in the paranormal and mystery genres and serves as the first entry in the Redstone Chronicles series. It is suitable for the general reading audience. The book follows former Texas Ranger and present day Private Investigator and spirit medium Mason Redstone as he is called in to help by his former partner. Drawn into a mystery that forces Mason to question his past and whether his partner can be trusted, it isn’t long before the investigation draws the direct attention of a dangerous killer and Mason’s very life is on the line.
This inviting and exciting novel does an excellent job of taking the eeriness of the paranormal genre and the suspense and second guessing of the mystery genre and combining them to create a narrative that will constantly keep readers on the edge of their seats, trying to figure out where the next twist will come from. One of the strongest aspects of this book is the author’s ability to create living and breathing characters who each feel like they could be as real as myself, but without ever compromising the need for intrigue and drama that mystery novels require. The best example of this lies with Mason and his former partner Trick, who spend the novel cautiously building and rebuilding the bedrock of trust that once underscored their partnership. Author J. T. Bishop consistently demonstrates that they are a keen study of the human condition and uses this knowledge to give Lost Souls an unforgettable cast. A highly recommended read.
