Lost Boys by James Miller

Lost Boys

James Miller

Angry, alienated, white middle class boys are disappearing from their homes overnight. When his own son vanishes, guilt ridden oil executive, Arthur Dashwood, begins an agonising search for the truth. An intriguing and disturbing apocalyptic thriller with a hammer blow ending. Assaults the reader's senses like a sand storm in the desert.

Extract

Arthur had never known such pain: a brittle laceration of the nerves, a corkscrew in his heart, gouging and twisting, a cancer-black hole of dread slowly spreading through each cell, a fist in his stomach, squeezing and pressing all day, all night. There could be no release, no let-up, no mercy. Shaken so violently, his world fractured. One small boy was all it took to upset the universe.
