"Forgive me," he sobbed, the tears falling now. He saw them, huddled under the damp trees, faces hidden with scarves and masks. Waiting.'

All over London, affluent and privileged boys are going missing from their homes and schools. Investigations into the disappearances uncover a world of extreme and disturbing fantasy, a violent rejection of all that society values. A father, haunted by his experiences in Iraq, searches for his lost son in the seedy underside of the city. Through a series of fearful revelations, his complicity in the brutal effects of the so-called civilised West.

Shocking and controversial, LOST BOYS sheds light on the secret fears and desires that drive children and adults, families and society. Drawing disconcerting parallels between the childhood resistance to adulthood and the War on Terror, LOST BOYS is an unsettling and unforgettable novel from a major new talent in contemporary fiction.

Review:

James Miller's Lost Boys remained in my mind long after I turned the last page. Subject matter is essential in fiction and Miller magnificently fulfills this requirement. He is a formidable writer (Beryl Bainbridge)

A powerful, entertaining and disturbing read. (Francis Gilbert, The Times)

Miller's prose is elegant and assured (Simon Baker, Literary Review)

Sleek and shocking, this is highly intelligent cultural criticism. (WBQ)

Book Description:

* Powerful debut novel that explores the corruption of Western culture - a contemporary Lord of the Flies adventure
