PRAISE FOR T.M. WRIGHT

"One of the most original writers of the surreal and macabre ... a rare and blazing talent." ~ STEPHEN KING

"T.M. Wright is more than a master of quiet horror; he's a one-man definition of the term."~ RAMSEY CAMPBELL

"Relentlessly original." ~ THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"Brilliant." ~ 2AM MAGAZINE

"Sharply etched." ~ KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Hallucinatory ... eerie." ~ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Wright can keep us shivering on the edge." ~ NEW YORK NEWSDAY

"LITTLE BOY LOST Lost takes the fear and anguish felt for a lost child and magnifies it ten-fold by incorporating a supernatural element. A taut horror-thriller." ~ RAVE REVIEWS

Miles Gale's younger son has vanished from the family car in broad daylight. It is up to Miles' older son C.J. to help keep his dad from being arrested for murder. C.J. saw what happened to his brother and only he can "imagine" the way between the two worlds.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Six years ago Miles Gale's first wife was murdered. Three years later his second wife disappeared. Now his youngest son has vanished from the back seat of their car. Seeking clues in the disturbing pattern of events, the police are unwittingly led by Gale's second wife, Marie, a demoness who can traverse time and cloud men's minds. Marie killed Gale's first wife so she could have a son by him, and has now claimed the boy. Wright ( The Place ) fails to convince: there are so many loose threads that the plot seems never to have been woven, and attempts at characterization seem limited to players who make only cameo appearances. This effort to straddle the horror/fantasy boundary disappoints in both genres. (June)
School Library Journal
YA-- An intriguing book about the sudden disappearance of six-year-old Aaron Gale. While riding with his older brother, C. J., and their father, Miles, the child simply vanishes from the vehicle. This alone is odd enough, but the 8-year-old murder of Miles's first wife remains unsolved; his second wife, Marie, disappeared just 18 months before Aaron and has not been heard of since. Coupled with such suspicious events are C. J.'s photographic memory and his father's work as an archaeologist. Some of the characters are introduced only superficially, yet this weakness is slight in contrast to the spellbinding plot. The book could enhance the curriculum in several areas--mysticism, Native Americans, parapsychology--in addition to being an enjoyable piece of fiction.-- Diane Goheen, Topeka West High School Library, KS
