Synopsis

Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst

What do a suburban mom, her troubled daughter, divorced brothers, former child stars, born-again Christians, and young millionaires have in common? They have all been selected to compete on LOST AND FOUND, the daring new reality show. In teams of two, they will race across the globe - from Egypt to England, from Japan to Sweden - to battle for a million-dollar prize. They must decipher encrypted clues, recover mysterious artifacts and outwit their opponents to stay in play. Yet what started as a lark turns deadly serious as the number of players is whittled down, temptations beckon and the bonds between partners strain and unravel. The question now is not only who will capture the final prize, but at what cost?

Reviews

Ingenious and entertaining. . . . This is true storytelling, bigger than the sum of its parts, absorbing, delightful, and casually profound. --Boston Globe Elinor Lipman

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
