Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From the two-time winner of Canadas prestigious Governor Generals Award, a suspenseful story of greed, betrayal, murder, and a lottery ticket that may or may not be worth millions.

For 20 years, Alex Chapman — a worn-out academic and failed priest — has been at war with his great-uncle James, a man known in his small-town community as “The Tyrant.” Embittered and disillusioned, Alex believes that James is responsible for his harsh childhood, for the loss of his one true love, and, ultimately, for the unfortunate direction his life has taken. So when Alex runs into the slow-witted local auto mechanic who claims he has just given James Chapman a winning lottery ticket worth thirteen million dollars, Alex sees his chance for revenge, and plots to steal the ticket away from his aging uncle.

Thus begins an emotionally shattering story of a familys deep-seated grudges and dangerous passions, all set around a lonely, country road where rival provinces have converged for years. A chilling exploration of what happens when our moral questions become matters of life and death, The Lost Highway is a page-turning tale of small-town jealousy and corruption.
