A year after the disappearance of his twin sister, 13-year-old Johnny Merrimon risks everything in a final, desperate search through the dark side of his hometown with the aid of a giant-sized man, while detective Clyde Hunt, unable to forget the unsolved case, chooses to break from convention when a second child goes missing.

Annotation:
First Johnny Merrimon's twin sister had been kidnapped. Then his father ran off, leaving his beautiful mother wasting away and vulnerable to the men who have always admired her. The vacant look in his mother's eyes and the lack of action from the local authorities leaves the 13-year-old no option other than to find his dear sister himself--since he is the only one who believes she is still alive. But there is no way Johnny, or anyone in his quiet southern hometown, could be prepared for the brutal secrets he uncovers as he scours the countryside on his bicycle.

Praise

"Not that we needed any further proof, but Hart once again demonstrates that he is a remarkable storyteller....[He] produces a novel that is elegant, haunting, and memorable." (starred review) - David Pitt 03/01/2009

"Appealingly character-driven, particularly by 13-year-old Johnny, who's full of likeable traces of Huck Finn." (starred review) 04/01/2009

"[C]hilling...Hart spins an impressively layered tale of broken families and secrets that can kill." 03/02/2009

"John Hart's third novel covers only a few days in the life of a North Carolina town, but the minutes all seem breathless. Every few chapters bring new twists and startling revelations: another girl's disappearance, bodies and then more bodies, a surprising series of connections that casts new light on everything that's come before and throws darkening shadows over what's ahead." - Art Taylor 07/29/2009
