Praise

The Lost Kings is a novel in disguise. You could easily (and happily) mistake it for a stellar psychological thriller, bristling with surprises and packed with secrets; but listen closely and you’ll hear the beat of a dark, full heart, strong and loud. This is deeply moving fiction, humane and affecting – the sort of book that few writers dare attempt, and fewer still manage to achieve. And while plenty of heroines in plenty of novels have pivoted to the past in order to salvage their futures, few have done so with the force and guile of Jeanie King, whom I’ll remember years from now. The Lost Kings will enrich you even as it excites you. Read it and weep.”   
—A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

The Lost Kings is one of those wonderful novels that defies categorization: part psychological thriller, part coming of age tale, part exploration of the demons that dog some of the most damaged among us. It’s smart, haunting, and rich with surprise.”
— Chris Bohjalian, #1 Bestselling Author of The Flight Attendant and The Lioness

The Lost Kings is one of those rare books that leaves you feeling conflicted: I couldn’t put it down, but at the same time, I didn’t want it to end. With writing that pulls you in and a story and characters that make you want to stay, it’s compulsively readable from the first page to the last.”
—Stacy Willingham, New York Times bestselling author of A Flicker in the Dark

“Tyrell Johnson has written a gripping journey of one woman’s profound loss. The Lost Kings is raw and unflinching, a reminder of the people who shape us.”
—Catherine Dang, author of Nice Girls

“Johnson’s writing proves to be brilliant. . . . Johnson’s use of psychological terminology and his personal love of poetry are sprinkled throughout the story, and the realistic characters are emotional and imperfect, which will leave readers feeling empathy and surprise at the same time.”
—Library Journal
 
“A twisty masterpiece of a thriller.”
—PopSugar

The Lost Kings is a harrowing story with a start that will deliver a quick punch to the gut. . . . Johnson lets the suspense unfold slowly, with a strong undercurrent of dread that pushes the story forward toward a chilling conclusion.”
Crime Reads

“Suspenseful, surprising. . . . Tana French fans will find a lot to like.”
Publishers Weekly

“A sense of foreboding and unspecified menace hang over Jeanie’s narration; we sense that something is distinctly off here, but we aren’t sure whether Jeanie is simply withholding information or whether she is as uncertain as we are about her past. . . . The genuinely stunning twist at the end, as the chasm between internal and external worlds narrows, will leave readers reeling.”
