Name That Trauma :: Reader matt323 on a “Lost” Killer Kid Novel

Hey there everybody,

In the mid ’80s there was a novel about a killer kid called “Lost” or possibly “The Lost.” The book also had a creepy T.V. commercial that ran late at night. Every time I try a search for this book everything that comes up is either related to the T.V. show or the Jack Ketchum novel. If anyone could tell me the name of the author it would great and a way to see the commercial again would be even better.

Thanks a bunch,


UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Nothing seems to get past the all-knowing senski, and he knew that this book is LOST by Gary Devon.

I have a vague recollection of the commercial, but I have the book, and I think it was for the paperback release of Gary Devon’s Lost.

That is the book I was thinking of, thanks.

Looks like Mr. Devon wrote two more books before he died a couple of years ago.
