Steven L. Layne
The highly anticipated sequel to This Side of Paradise—which Kirkus heralds as “an entertaining, suspenseful thriller”—Paradise Lost delivers the same chilling scenarios and head-scratching secrets that fans expect from author Steven L. Layne. Meet Chase Maxfield. After a summer break, the former wallflower returns to school with a new found confidence to match his sudden, yet classic, good looks. His popularity even pulls the attention away from golden boy Troy Barrett. But not everyone is enamored with the overnight class favorite. Troy’s brother, Jack, suspects something sinister is behind Chase’s unexpected transformation, and his skepticism only grows as other eerie events occur.
