Seriously one of my favorite books this year! Thrilling, gripping, unpredictable and perfectly played! The premise was haunting, as we discover a local boy gone missing in a small community, seemingly similar to missing children from the past. Tom and his son Jake work to fit into their new town after the sudden death of Tom's wife. Raising Jake on his own while dealing with his own grief, Tom works hard to deal with some of the odd behavior Jake begins to display, especially when it seems connected to the recent boy gone missing. A taut, intriguing storyline that made me gasp in disbelief at times and kept my attention until the very last page. I can't wait for more from this author - a true artist in his craft of words into a story - it ends where it begins.
