Two-time Edgar Award-winning author Lori Roy spins a
twisted, atmospheric tale about a small Southern town where
girls disappear and boys run away.
When Lane Fielding fled her isolated Florida hometown after
high school for the anonymity of New York City, she swore
she'd never return. But twenty years later, newly divorced
and with two daughters in tow, she finds herself tending bar
at the local dive and living with her parents on the
historic Fielding Plantation. Here, the past haunts her and
the sinister crimes of her father--the former director of an
infamous boys' school--make her as unwelcome in town as she
was the day she left.
Ostracized by the people she was taught to trust, Lane's
unsteady truce with the town is rattled when her older
daughter suddenly vanishes. Ten days earlier, a college
student went missing, and the two disappearances at first
ignite fears that a serial killer who once preyed upon the
town has returned. But when Lane's younger daughter admits
to having made a new and unseemly friend, a desperate Lane
attacks her hometown's faĂ§ade to discover whether her
daughter's disappearance is payback for her father's
crimes--or for her own.
With reporters descending upon the town, police combing
through the swamp, and events taking increasingly disturbing
turns, Lane fears she faces too many enemies and too little
time to bring her daughter safely home. Powerful and
heart-pounding, The Disappearing questions the
endurance of family bonds, the dangers of dark rumors and
small town gossip, and how sometimes home is the scariest
place of all.
