**Important note: NO, this book has nothing to do with the infamous weirdo and horse video by the same name. Just in-case any of you get confused or decide to google "Mr. Hands." I'd definitely add "book" to those search terms - or don't, if you're into that kind of thing. **
The story at the center of Jack Ketchum’s “The Lost” calls to mind true crime tales like “The River’s Edge” and “Say, You Love Satan”. At the center of these stories are charismatic and fractured Borderlines and Sociopaths who exhaust all the morally ambiguous and victimless avenues for eradicating their impotence and pain, and end up committing murder to affirm their fantastic notions of self. Where the film adaptation of ‘The Lost’ differs is that it takes a phenomenological approach to the tragic events and people at its core.
