Lost Christmas By David Logan
When Goose's parents are killed in a car crash on Christmas Eve, his life changes utterly. Living with his increasingly senile Nan, his dog Mutt is the only thing in this world that he now cares about. Frank, his late father’s best friend, plays Fagin to Goose’s Artful Dodger but Frank’s life is falling apart too.
A year to the day since the accident that changed his life, Goose meets Anthony, a strange man who has forgotten who he is, but seems to know more about others than they know about themselves.
When Mutt goes missing, Goose has no choice but to rely on Anthony to help find him. In an adventure that draws in Frank, who's lost his family, an old lady who's lost a precious bangle, an elderly doctor who's lost his wife and a mother who's lost her daughter, Goose follows Anthony across Manchester.
But at the centre of the mystery is Anthony himself: who is he, how does he know so much about others and yet so little about himself and can he help Goose and the others find what they’re searching for?
LOST CHRISTMAS is a journey through love, loss and the quest for home.
