Lost Girl is a searing novel by Adam Nevill about the all-too-close-to-reality possibilities that await us as the world becomes more crowded, more affected by climate change and less hospitable to humanity.
However, it's not just a commentary on our present and fast accelerating condition.
Instead, Nevill manages to weave fine touches of horror storytelling into his tale and link this terrible tale to his other works with subtle references as well. As always, masterfully written and astonishingly well crafted. Well done, Mr. Nevill!
