Frank Allcroft, a television news anchor in his hometown, is on the verge of a midlife crisis. Beneath his famously corny on-screen persona, Frank is haunted by loss: the mysterious hit-and-run that killed his predecessor and friend, Phil, and the ongoing demolition of his architect father's monumental postwar buildings.

And then there are the things he can't seem to lose, no matter how hard he tries: his home, for one, on the market for years; and the nagging sense that he will never quite be the son his mother - newly ensconced in an assisted-living center - wanted.

As Frank uncovers the shocking truth behind Phil's death and comes to terms with his domineering father's legacy, it is his beloved young daughter, Mo, who points him toward the future. This spirited literary mystery is a funny and moving exploration of what we do and don't leave behind.

    " Tv news presenter needs a ratings boost. Investigating the death of his predecessor, and paying for bad jokes. Nostalgic over buildings his grandfather designed. "

    " Nowhere near as gripping or as wonderful as What was Lost IMO but O'Flynn writes beautifully yet again about lost, the lost and being found. "

    " I really loved the characters in this book, and the small, every day emotional moments. I thought the big mystery was pretty easy to figure out and anticlimactic, but it was pleasant to spend time in these characters' lives. "

    " Frank is a presenter for a W Midlands TV news programme with him we touch on the nature of local TV, ageing, urban redevelopment, loneliness but all rather superficially - a bit like local TV coverage perhaps? "
