Hired to find a boy gene missing in Doraville, North Carolina, Harper Connelly and her brother Tolliver head there, only to discover that the boy was the only one left of several who had disappeared over the previous five years. All of them teenagers. All unlikely runaways.

All calling for Harper.

Harper soon finds them--eight victims, buried in the half-frozen ground, all come to an unspeakable end. Afterward, what she most wants to do is collect her fee and get out of town ahead of the media storm that's soon to descend. But when she's attacked and prevented from leaving, she reluctantly becomes a part of the investigation as she learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and long-hidden secrets of Doraville--knowledge that makes her the next person likely to rest in an ice-cold grave.

The book is not gratuitously graphic, but the brief glimpse into the crime against nine children is deeply disturbing. I'm going to read some Juvenile Fiction for awhile to rid myself of the bad vibes. Read full review
