Order of Peter Straub Books
Peter Straub is an American author of horror novels and poetry. He has won the Bram Stoker Award, World Fantasy Award, and International Horror Guild Award. Peter is the son of a salesman and a nurse. His parents wanted him to become an athlete, a doctor or a minister; all he wanted to do was learn how to read, and he soon did. But soon after, he was hit by a car in a near-death experience and had to undergo surgeries, take a year off school and spend time as a wheelchair. This only led to him reading more. Years later, he would attend the University of Wisconsin and earn his English degree with honours. A year later, he got his MA at Columbia.

Peter Straub Synopsis: Lost Boy Lost Girl is a standalone title by Peter Straub. After a woman commits suicide for reasons unknown, her 15 year-old son, Mark Underhill, disappears. His uncle, novelist Timothy Underhill, searches his hometown of Millhaven for clues that might help solve this horrible double mystery. He soon learns that a pedophilic murderer is on the loose in the area, and that shortly before his mother’s suicide, Mark had become obsessed with an abandoned house where he imagined the killer might have taken refuge. Not simply an empty building, the house whispers from attic to basement with the echoes of a long-hidden true-life horror story, and Tim Underhill comes to fear that in investigating its unspeakable history, Mark stumbled across its last and biggest secret: a ghostly lost girl who may have coaxed the needy, suggestible boy into her mysterious domain.
