Description

"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.show more
