Isabella Moonby Laura Benedict
Synopses & Reviews
Two years ago, in idyllic Carystown, Kentucky, nine-year-old Isabella Moon disappeared on her way home from school. Is it just coincidence that Kate Russell, a young woman with no discernible past, arrived in town just months before Isabellas disappearance? When Kate walks into Sheriff Bill Delaneys office to tell him that Isabellas ghost has led her to the childs hidden grave, he immediately views her as a suspect. Mystery follows mystery as a local athlete drops dead, inexplicably, on the basketball court, and someone close to Kate is viciously murdered.
The unsolved disappearance of Isabella Moon has been the biggest disappointment of Sheriff Delaneys career. But he senses that Kate is trouble. As he investigates her impossible claims, he also uncovers a series of unsettling truths about Carystown itself. Behind his hometowns genteel façade is a morass of lies and murder, drugs and destruction. And Carystowns residents are about to discover that even though the past is buried, it can rise again-with a vengeance.
