Synopsis

Lost Girl is a dystopian nightmare from the master of horror Adam Nevill.

How far will he go to save his daughter? How far will he go to get revenge?

It's 2053 and climate change has left billions homeless and starving - easy prey for the pandemics that sweep across the globe, scything through the refugee populations. Easy prey, too, for the violent gangs and people-smugglers who thrive in the crumbling world where 'King Death' reigns supreme.

The father's world went to hell two years ago. His four-year-old daughter was snatched from his garden when he should have been watching. The moments before her disappearance play in a perpetual loop in his mind. But the police aren't interested; amidst floods, hurricanes and global chaos, who cares about one more missing child? Now it's all down to him to find her, him alone . . .

In the media

Lost Girl holds up an unflinching mirror to our reality, and it's not a pretty sight. It does, however, also hold out a thin hope for humanity - and after reading this, you'll probably feel that we need one
Murder and Mayhem
Lost Girl is an outstanding novel, a gripping, terrifying read from an author who never fails to deliver. It's a book that ably demonstrates that the horrors that arise from human nature itself are just as terrifying as those of a supernatural nature. It's a novel I highly recommend
