"Spooky premise, great atmospherics, and unexpected twists...for fans of all things relentlessly creepy." - Alma Katsu
One day in 1959, an entire village of people disappeared—leaving behind only the broken body of a woman in the town square, and an abandoned newborn in a schoolroom.
No one knows why they vanished. No one’s been there since.
Documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt has been obsessed with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed “The Lost Village,” since she was a little girl. Her grandmother’s entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the dead woman and abandoned baby have plagued her. She’s gathered a small crew of filmmaking friends to spend a few days in the quiet village and make a film about what really happened.
There will be no turning back for them.
Not long after they’ve set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People begin to go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice: they are not alone.
Addictively gripping and brilliantly chilling, The Lost Village by Camilla Sten is a pulse-pounding, riveting thriller from beginning to end.
