"I fell deep into this book and never wanted to come out. It'll make you a Scott Carson fan for life."--Joe Hill, #1 New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and STRANGE WEATHER
"The best Scott Carson novel yet! Horror writers are always being compared to Stephen King, quite often without the quality to back up the comparison, but here we have the real deal! In this beautifully executed coming-of-age horror, Carson weaves a tale all his own, replete with unsettling evil and the questions of love and loss, of trust and family, that plague us all. LOST MAN'S LANE creeped me out, and I loved every shiver!"--Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of THE HOUSE OF LAST RESORT and ROAD OF BONES
"LOST MAN'S LANE is Scott Carson's finest achievement. It's such an engaging read that is virtually turns its own pages for the reader." --Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE WORLD
"Scott Carson has done it again. LOST MAN'S LANE is a richly imagined, terrifying trip down memory lane. High school keggers and small town legends, first loves and heartbreaks, serpents and secrets -- it's all here in one action-packed story. Poignant, nostalgic, and profoundly unsettling, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Carson is a spellbinding storyteller and LOST MAN'S LANE is his best yet." --Richard Chizmar, New York Times bestselling author of GWENDY'S FINAL TASK and BECOMING THE BOOGEYMAN
"Nobody makes you believe the unbelievable better than Scott Carson. LOST MAN'S LANE channels Stephen King's very best."--Robert Dugoni, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Tracy Crosswhite Series
"With LOST MAN'S LANE, Scott Carson fuses a gothic spellbinder steeped in old-American lore with the piercing ache of a coming-of-age story, bittersweet and filled with longing. With echoes of Ray Bradbury and Peter Straub, it's a dazzling, genuinely terrifying novel that hovers darkly in your head long after you finish."--Megan Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of BEWARE THE WOMAN
"I've spent the last few nights completely enthralled by teenage private investigator Marshall Miller and his creepy coming-of-age horror story. LOST MAN'S LANE made me feel like I was 17 all over again. It's sweet, scary, nostalgic, and deeply unsettling -- and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!"--Jason Rekulak, nationally bestselling author of HIDDEN PICTURES
"LOST MAN'S LANE is masterful story-telling -- a heartfelt, deeply creepy tale of lost innocence and the evil that lurks beneath even the most placid American surfaces."

--Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of THE PASSAGE and THE FERRYMAN
"Scary, and perfect reading pleasure."--Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author of YOU LIKE IT DARKER
