Lost Boy, Lost Girl | [Peter Straub]

Lost Boy, Lost Girl

A woman commits suicide for no apparent reason. A week later, her son- fifteen-year-old Mark Underhill - vanishes. His uncle, novelist Timothy Underhill, searches his hometown of Millhaven for clues that might help unravel this horrible dual mystery. He soon learns that a pedophilic murderer is on the loose in the vicinity, and that shortly before his mother's suicide, Mark had become obsessed with an abandoned house where he imagined the killer might have taken refuge.

Publisher's Summary

A woman commits suicide for no apparent reason. A week later, her son- fifteen-year-old Mark Underhill - vanishes. His uncle, novelist Timothy Underhill, searches his hometown of Millhaven for clues that might help unravel this horrible dual mystery. He soon learns that a pedophilic murderer is on the loose in the vicinity, and that shortly before his mother's suicide, Mark had become obsessed with an abandoned house where he imagined the killer might have taken refuge. No mere empty building, the house whispers from attic to basement with the echoes of a long-hidden true-life horror story, and Tim Underhill comes to fear that in investigating its unspeakable history, Mark stumbled across its last and greatest secret: a ghostly lost girl who may have coaxed the needy, suggestible boy into her mysterious domain.

    "ALAN ALDA WITHOUT THE SMIRK"

    LET'S GO TO THE DUMP AND SHOOT RATS
    A house in plain sight that nobody sees or sees, but forgets. A house with hidden passage ways. A basement you don't want to enter. A man with no face. Abducted children. A huge mystery.

    RENT A MINISTER
    This is a story told in overlapping time lines, from the view of different characters. The suspense builds during the story and it gets more interesting as it goes along. For me it never hit great, but neither did it hit bad. I did not feel I wasted a credit, but I did feel it could have been more. It does not raise the emotions that you get from Orson Scott Card's Lost Boys and it is never that terrifying. It is more just creepy. It is more of a paranormal then a horror story. Had Peter included the thoughts of the monster, it could have been scarier. A prequel to this actually should be written. We get this mostly as bad things that happened in the past, as opposed to the present.
