Lost Hope: A Paranormal P.I. Thriller by Judy T Bishop is the fourth book in the Redstone Chronicles series. Mason and Mikey need to get back to normal, despite their psychotic sister being on the run. When their long-estranged father turns up, they find it even harder, especially when he ends up in hospital. Things go from bad to worse when Trick’s inquiries result in an attack and more savage attacks follow. As they dig into the case, it becomes evident that things aren’t as straightforward as they first seemed and Trick is forced into making a move he didn’t plan. The only way he can protect everyone is to place his trust in a secret organization, but he’s about to put himself in the line of fire. When Mason and Mikey become the killer’s next targets, Trick believes the only way to save them is to sacrifice himself.

Lost Hope by Judy T Bishop is not designed to be read as a standalone but as part of the series. Like the previous books, this one will keep you on your toes, and its action-packed, twisty plot keeps you guessing right to the very end. This is a real page-turner, a book you will keep reading long into the night, afraid to put it down lest you miss something. A combination of thriller, action, and the supernatural, the story welcomes back old friends from previous accounts and introduces a few new ones too. Another great story from a fantastic series, and is highly recommended.

Lost Hope: A Paranormal P.I. Thriller is the fourth book of The Redstone Chronicles series by Judy T. Bishop. The Redstone siblings, Mikey and Mason, receive an impromptu visit from their estranged father Martin, who brings with him his new young fiancee Vicki, much to the chagrin of Mason. Meanwhile, Trick Monroe, Mason's partner at SCOPE, a paranormal investigation firm, sets off to solve the case of one Jackson Trammel, unwittingly embroiling himself in a situation that was much more than he bargained for. When Kyle Willow, one of SCOPE's newest investigators, is brutally attacked, Trick realizes the stakes involved. To add drama, Mikey and Mason's psychopathic sister Margaret returns just after their father lands himself in hospital. With two dangerous women on the loose, putting their lives in danger, will the Redstone siblings be able to pull through? Can Trick keep his promise?

A swirling mix of mystery, action, and intrigue with a touch of the supernatural makes Judy T. Bishop's murder mystery thriller a delicious brew you can't put down. With well-fleshed-out characters and a completely unpredictable plot full of twists and turns, the book never lets your attention waver for a single moment. Bishop brings a sense of tension and drama to the narrative that is just captivating to read. Something happens at the halfway point of the story that I can honestly say I never saw coming. Despite being the fourth book in The Redstone Chronicles series, Lost Hope also serves as a standalone. If you love thrillers with supernatural elements, you will have a blast with this one.

The man told Jag to go and he did. But Jag’s body is found the next day and his mother, Janice, asks Trick to find out what happened to him.

Trick decides to look for Eleanor, who he believes will have answers for him. Trick went to a bar called O’Rourke’s where he got Eleanor’s address. Will Trick find the answers he is looking for in Lost Hope, a paranormal thriller by J.T. Bishop?

Lost Hope by J.T. Bishop was something out of this world. It was suspenseful and full of action. The plot is extraordinary. There was so much happening that there never was a dull moment. I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning. With all the twists and turns, I never waited long to discover what was going to happen next. The characters were real, and I could relate to them. My favorite character was Trick. He promised Jag’s mother that he would find out what happened to Jag. He went out of his way to investigate and get answers. Lost Hope is excellently written. J.T. Bishop intertwines the paranormal with ordinary life. It was done in such a way that the paranormal seems like everyday life. The way the story ended was a big surprise. I was sorry when it ended.
