The year 2022 saw the release of Paul Chandler’s novel, Loden’s Children. The story revolves around the tragic loss of Loden’s three children in a house fire.
The Lodens hire private investigator Riley Callen to help them find answers about where their kids went. What she discovers is considerably larger and more perilous than she had anticipated.
Two worried parents search for their missing kids after a fire incident occurs in their home. The couple’s initial instinct, as any parent would, is to hunt for their missing children. They sense something is wrong as they make their way to the kids’ room. There were no signs of children anywhere in or around the residence. They had no idea if they made it out of the fire alive. A case is opened and the search for Loden’s children begins. After twenty years, no new information has emerged that could help solve the case. They lament their loss at first, thinking they perished in the blaze, but eventually, they realize that something unusual occurred.
Until Vera Loden contacts private investigator Riley Callen, the crime remains unsolved. Riley and a remarkable AI, Molly work on the investigation and make progress, uncovering secrets that raise suspicion about what happened to the kids after they disappeared. With her keen mind and courage, she delves deeper into a mystery involving weird happenings and some very dangerous characters, leading to a darker turn in the plot. Riley, a private investigator who specializes in finding missing people, realizes that some forces will do anything to keep the secrets of the night of the fire hidden, and she ultimately faces evil in the process of solving the case. What she uncovers eventually is extensively larger in scope and more perilous than she had envisaged. The story’s realism and the likeability of its characters make it simple to empathize with those who find themselves in an intolerable predicament.
