Book Review – The Boy Who Saw


The Boy Who Saw by Simon Toyne (Harper Collins) ISBN: 9780007551637

Solomon Creed suffers from amnesia and he has no recollection of his past or who he is. All he knows is his name, which is stitched into the white suit he wears. Determined to find out more, Solomon tracks down the tailor of his suit, hoping he might shed some light on his identity. He is however too late, someone has just murdered Josef Engel.

Solomon possesses a set of impressive skills that help him out of every imaginable circumstance. In his quest to find out who killed Josef, he reluctantly turns into the perfect guardian for Josef’s granddaughter, Marie-Claude and her son, Leo. Marie-Claude involves Solomon in her current project that goes back to World War 2. Could the murder be linked to this project?

Soon Solomon, Marie-Claude, and Leo are on the run, not only from Marie-Claude’s violent ex-husband, but also from someone who will stop at nothing to ensure Marie-Claude is silenced.

The Boy Who Saw, the second novel in the Solomon Creed series, is an action-packed story that doesn’t let up from the first page. Solomon Creed is an unforgettable hero who will stay with you long after you have finished reading the book.
