New York Times bestselling author David Morrell is back with a fast-paced tale of a man struggling to reclaim his abducted family from a stranger who may possibly be his long-lost brother. Brad Denning is a successful architect living a perfect life in Denver with his loving wife and son. Or so it would be, if not for the haunting memory of his brother Petey who disappeared while under Brad’s supervision when they were kids.

I must confess that I couldn’t bring myself to read Long Lost by David Morrell for a very long time. Being a mother of two very young children and an aunt to two young boys, the thought of a child disappearing like that never to show up again in the parent’s lifetime was enough to give me the creeps.

I had to choose-take 94 northeast through Montana, way up into North Dakota, or else retrace 90 south into Wyoming. I chose the latter d. My decision was totally arbitrary. But as tired as I was, if I didn’t soon find a place to sleep, I knew I’d have an accident. Petey must have felt the same. Even charged with adrenaline, he couldn’t have kept going much longer. For certain, he wouldn’t have dared risk an accident.

David Morrell has written one scholarly work, John Barth: An Introduction, published by Pennsylvania State University in 1977 and has taught at the University of Iowa. He now lives in the United States with his wife and daughter (another child, a son, is deceased).

Like Robert Ludlum, Morrell began his bestselling career with short, tough action yarns (First Blood; Testament), then moved into very long, very complex conspiracy thrillers (The Brotherhood of the Rose). This modestly exciting thriller is a return to his old laconic style, but what's missing is the original plotting that has marked so much of Morrell's fiction. The novel does boast a first-rate setup: narrator Brad Denning is on top of the world, with a great career as an architect, a wonderful wife, Kate, and son, Jason, 11 never mind.

Brad Denning is living a perfect life, or so it would be, if not for the haunting memory of his brother Petey who disappeared when they were kids. Now, a man claiming to be his sibling has mysteriously appeared with a reluctance to reveal anything about his past.

25 years earlier the protagonist(Brad Denning) told his younger brother to leave him alone. The boy(Petey) does, and is kidnapped when riding away on his bike, only to show up many years later, to kill his older brother, and kidnap his family.
Brad survives Peter's attempt on his life, but finds his family has been taken by his psychotic younger brother(or is he in fact his younger brother?).
The whole story centers around the guilt ridden Brad searching for his family, by searching through Peter's past, to find out what had happened to him, to turn him into sick, demented person he turned out to be.
Though only 310 pages, the story was way too long, and drawn out, without only three action scenes throughout the whole novel to keep your interest.
This novel rates as one of the worst, by him, or anyone else I have read. The only reason I finished it, was because I liked Morrell's past novels, and expected it to get better at the end, which it did, but not by much.
Read instead, his "Extreme Denial, "Covenant of the Flame", "Desperate Measures", "Fraternity of the Stone","Brotherhood of the Rose", and "League of Night and Fog", and forget about this one.

This book has a very interesting set up to the plot and then, as quickly as getting pushed from a cliff into an icy stream, it launches into a very impluasable series of events as successful architect Brad Denning tries to track down and find the little brother that disappearred from his life many years before and has now returned to steal his wife, his child and his identity. The little brother's motivation for doing this is poorly fleshed out and the eventual confrontation between siblings is so wildly implausable that at the end you find yourself shaking your head and wondering..."Now what the hell was that all about?" I'd like to know the answer.

This was the first book I have read by David Morrell. I thought it was well written and it kept my interest. I was totally engrossed in the story to find out about Petey. It definitely was a page turner. I look forward to reading more from Morrell.

Well I can't believe there are people that didn't like this book. I have read 4 of his books and this by far is the BEST!! I finished this book in one day. I am an avid reader and can't say that I read any other book so fast. I read reviews on here that people say "Brotherhood of the Rose" is better, but I didn't think it was nearly as good. Different Strokes for different folks I guess!! If you want a book you can't put down, then pick this one up and happy reading!!

Great for adults looking for a suspenseful thrill. The length was perfect and the story never seemed to get off track.

David Morrell's "Long Lost," is about Brad and Karen Denning, a happily married couple who live with their eleven-year-old son, Jason, in Denver, Colorado. Brad is a prosperous and well-known architect. He has received favorable magazine and television coverage praising the innovative structures that he has built. Brad has one major regret in life. When he was a thirteen-year-old youngster in Ohio, he once told his nine-year-old brother, Petey to go home by himself, since Brad's friends didn't want a little kid tagging along with them. Tragically, Petey got on his bike, pedaled away, and disappeared off the face of the earth. Petey's disappearance devastated the Denning family and Brad has never gotten over his grief and his guilt over the loss of his brother.

One day, a man shows up out of the blue and calls out Brad's name while Brad is walking along the street in downtown Denver. The man states that he had seen a television spot featuring Brad, and he insists that he is Petey, Brad's long-lost brother. "Petey" claims to be elated to have the opportunity to reconnect at last with his family and he seems anxious to make up for all the lost years when the brothers were separated. After an initial period of understandable skepticism, Brad buys the man's story, particularly because "Petey" knows facts about the boys' childhood that no one else could have told him.

Brad soon finds that he has inadvertently plunged himself and his family into a morass of terror and despair by allowing this man into his home. Is this man really Brad's long-lost brother, or is he an impostor? What soon becomes clear is that "Petey's" agenda is not about reconciliation. Brad is soon put into a position of having to single-handedly save his family and himself from disaster.
Morrell's writing in "Long Lost" is simple and understated. The chapters are brief and he uses the first person, which makes the action more personal and immediate. The novel is fast-paced and exciting and the reader is kept on the edge of his seat wondering how the plot will resolve itself. The only downside is that occasional melodramatic touches seep into the narrative, and there are a few cliches that detract from the flow of the story. However, for the most part "Long Lost" is a good summer read. Put your feet up and prepare to lose yourself in a story about a desperate person who will do anything to reclaim his life from a very dangerous man.
