Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A riveting new psychological thriller from a "a masterful storyteller" (New York Times Book Review).

Yesterday, a local boy went missing in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Transplanted painter Charlotte Dunleavy was used to seeing him go into the woods, rifle in hand, to shoot at crows. Suffering from the debilitating aftereffects of a migraine, Charlotte is shrouded in a fog of pain and barely remembers the details of the day, just splinters of memory, as if they were a dream-but nothing concrete enough to help the local sheriff in his search.

Outside of Charlotte's windows, the woods are peaceful, the play of light and dark among the leaves offering her inspiration for her art. But the truth can penetrate even the deepest shadows of a forest-and a killer's mind...

Review:

"When 12-year-old Jesse Rankin vanishes while out shooting crows in rural Cumberland County, Pa., at the start of this thoughtful character study, suspicion falls on an older boy, Dylan Hayes, a convenient scapegoat whose only fault is to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sheriff Mark Gatesman interviews reclusive painter Charlotte Dunleavy, an attractive divorcée and well-to-do recent transplant from New York City, whose eyewitness testimony has damned Dylan and whose tragic past turns out to have a direct connection to the mystery confounding the people of Cumberland County. As Gatesman's investigation falters, Silvis (In a Town Called Mundomuerto) dwells on Dunleavy's claustrophobic inner emotional landscape. The final revelation appears with the slow inevitability of a glacier, inexorably grinding the characters beneath it." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
