Winifred Rudge travels to London to jump-start her new novel about a woman who is being haunted by the ghost of Jack the Ripper. Upon her arrival, she finds that her stepcousin and old friend John Comestor has disappeared, and a ghostly presence seems to have taken over his apartment in the nineteenth-century rowhouse once owned by Winnie's great-great-grandfather. Is it the spirit of this ancestor, who, family legend claims, was Charles Dickens's childhood inspiration for Ebenezer Scrooge? Could it be the ghostly remains of Jack the Ripper? Or a phantasm derived from a more arcane and insidious origin? Winnie begins to investigate, but finds herself the unwilling audience for a drama of specters and shades, some from her family's peculiar history and some from her own unvanquished past. Lost presents a rich fictional world that will enrapture Gregory Maguire's eager audience.

After years of attempts and switching over to audio, I was finally able to finish this book! Unfortunately, it really wasn't worth it. The plot was frustratingly nonsensical and the heroine one of the most thoroughly unlikable protagonists I've encountered. Most of the very promising plot elements from the beginning of the book turn out to be red herrings for a far less interesting "ghost" story. If you were intrigued by the Ebenezer Scrooge tie-in, turn back now. I've been a fan of Gregory Maguire for over a decade and have enjoyed most of his works. This one didn't do it for me.
