Description

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

Professional reviews

"Artful Blair Brown has a romp with this ingenious novel about the cast and crew of a reality game show in which all the important players have secrets the producers would like to explode on prime-time TV. Two jokey brothers from Boston have just the right accents, the ambitious former child star reveals herself as an appalling narcissist, while Cassie, the sullen teenager teamed with her rather gormless mother, is somehow sympathetic, as is the show's host, Barbara Fox, whom the game's players see as an icy dominatrix. Keeping these characters distinct is key, and Brown never stumbles; she keeps the external pressure of the game and the internal pressure of the characters' secrets in a tense balance that is immensely entertaining.
