Sure to thrill readers of Jenny Milchman, Linda Castillo,
and Lisa Gardner, The Girls She Left Behind marks the return
of exâ€“Boston homicide detective Lizzie Snow, the new
sheriffâ€™s deputy in Maineâ€™s Great North Woods.
For Lizzie Snow, the ice and snow of her first punishing
North Woods winter are dreadful enough. But near the small
town of Bearkill a stubborn forest fire now rages out of
control, and as embers swirl dangerously in the smoke-filled
air, a teenage girl with a history of running away has
dropped out of sight again. The locals and the law both
think Tara Wylie is up to her old tricksâ€”until her mother
receives a terrifying text message.
Equally disturbing: Henry Gemerleâ€”a kidnapper and rapist who
once held three girls prisoner for fifteen yearsâ€”has
escaped, and may be lurking in Bearkill. As the fire closes
in, Lizzie teams up with her boss Sheriff Cody Chevrier and
state cop Dylan Hudson to search for the missing girl and
the wily fugitive. But theyâ€™re blocked by Taraâ€™s mother, a
frustrating teller of needless lies and keeper of dark,
Following a trail of grisly cluesâ€”a bloodstained motel room,
a makeshift coffin in a shallow graveâ€”Lizzie is drawn ever
closer to the flames in her race to save an innocent and
corner a monster. Someone else also wants to find Tara Wylie
and Henry Gemerle, though, for reasons that have nothing to
do with mercy or justice. And when they all meet, the
inferno threatening Bearkill will pale in comparison to the
hell thatâ€™s about to break loose.
