Synopsis
First Johnny Merrimon's twin sister had been kidnapped. Then his father ran off, leaving his beautiful mother wasting away and vulnerable to the men who have always admired her. The vacant look in his mother's eyes and the lack of action from the local authorities leaves the 13-year-old no option other than to find his dear sister himself--since he is the only one who believes she is still alive. But there is no way Johnny, or anyone in his quiet southern hometown, could be prepared for the brutal secrets he uncovers as he scours the countryside on his bicycle.

Publisher's Note

John Hartâ€â„¢s New York Times bestselling debut, The King of Lies, announced the arrival of a major talent. With Down River, he surpassed his earlier success, transcending the barrier between thriller and literature and winning the 2008 Edgar Award for best novel. Now, with The Last Child, he achieves his most significant work to date, an intricate, powerful story of loss, hope, and courage in the face of evil.

Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: a warm home and loving parents; a twin sister, Alyssa, with whom he shared an irreplaceable bond. He knew nothing of loss, until the day Alyssa vanished from the side of a lonely street. Now, a year later, Johnny finds himself isolated and alone, failed by the people heâ€â„¢d been taught since birth to trust. No one else believes that Alyssa is still alive, but Johnny is certain that she is---confident in a way that he can never fully explain.

Determined to find his sister, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown. It is a desperate, terrifying search, but Johnny is not as alone as he might think. Detective Clyde Hunt has never stopped looking for Alyssa either, and he has a soft spot for Johnny. He watches over the boy and tries to keep him safe, but when Johnny uncovers a dangerous lead and vows to follow it, Hunt has no choice but to intervene.

Then a second child goes missing . . .

Undeterred by Huntâ€â„¢s threats or his motherâ€â„¢s pleas, Johnny enlists the help of his last friend, and together they plunge into the wild, to a forgotten place with a history of violence that goes back more than a hundred years. There, they meet a giant of a man, an escaped convict on his own tragic quest. What they learn from him will shatter every notion Johnny had about the fate of his sister; it will lead them to another far place, to a truth that will test both boys to the limit.

Traveling the wilderness between innocence and hard wisdom, between hopelessness and faith, The Last Child leaves all categories behind and establishes John Hart as a writer of unique power.



A year after his family is shattered by the disappearance of his twin sister, thirteen-year-old Johnny Merrimon risks everything in a final, desperate search through the dark side of his hometown with the aid of a giant-sized man.

A year after the disappearance of his twin sister, 13-year-old Johnny Merrimon risks everything in a final, desperate search through the dark side of his hometown with the aid of a giant-sized man, while detective Clyde Hunt, unable to forget the unsolved case, chooses to break from convention when a second child goes missing. Reprint.

Industry Reviews
"Appealingly character-driven, particularly by 13-year-old Johnny, who's full of likeable traces of Huck Finn." (starred review)
(04/01/2009)

"[C]hilling...Hart spins an impressively layered tale of broken families and secrets that can kill."
(03/02/2009)

"Not that we needed any further proof, but Hart once again demonstrates that he is a remarkable storyteller....[He] produces a novel that is elegant, haunting, and memorable." (starred review)
(03/01/2009)

"John Hart's third novel covers only a few days in the life of a North Carolina town, but the minutes all seem breathless. Every few chapters bring new twists and startling revelations: another girl's disappearance, bodies and then more bodies, a surprising series of connections that casts new light on everything that's come before and throws darkening shadows over what's ahead."
