Charlie Donlea, one of the most original new voices in
suspense, returns with a haunting novel, laden with twists
and high tension, about two abducted girlsâ€”one who returns,
one who doesnâ€™tâ€”and the forensics expert searching for
Nicole Cutty and Megan McDonald are both high school seniors
in the small town of Emerson Bay, North Carolina. When they
disappear from a beach party one warm summer night, police
launch a massive search. No clues are found, and hope is
almost lost until Megan miraculously surfaces after escaping
from a bunker deep in the woods.
A year later, the bestselling account of her ordeal has
turned Megan from local hero to national celebrity. Itâ€™s a
triumphant, inspiring story, except for one inconvenient
detail: Nicole is still missing. Nicoleâ€™s older sister
Livia, a fellow in forensic pathology, expects that one day
soon Nicoleâ€™s body will be found, and it will be up to
someone like Livia to analyze the evidence and finally
determine her sisterâ€™s fate. Instead, the first clue to
Nicoleâ€™s disappearance comes from another body that shows up
in Liviaâ€™s morgueâ€”that of a young man connected to Nicoleâ€™s
past. Livia reaches out to Megan for help, hoping to learn
more about the night the two were taken. Other girls have
gone missing too, and Livia is increasingly certain the
cases are connected.
But Megan knows more than she revealed in her blockbuster
book. Flashes of memory are coming together, pointing to
something darker and more monstrous than her chilling memoir
describes. And the deeper she and Livia dig, the more they
realize that sometimes true terror lies in finding exactly
what youâ€™ve been looking for.
