Amazing. That is the one word I have to describe this book. It follows the life of a crazed murderer, and his friends and their lives after the aftermath of his first killing which they were witnesses of. This book starts sort of slow but I believe it was meant to do that. It was menat to start slow and then gradually take you along into this story until you reach an amazing climax.. Truely thrilling and utterly brilliant The Lost is a masterpiece of modern psychological horror.
