Synopses & Reviews
When Torey Adams posts on his blog that a body has been found in Steepletonfour years after Christopher Creed disappearedcollege reporter Mike Mavic sells his laptop and hops a plane to capture the story that will undoubtedly launch his journalistic career.
What Mike finds in Steepleton is not what he expected. Instead he witnesses a town suffering under a cloud of bad frequency: mysterious accidents, a higher than usual cancer rate, and people who are just a little off normal. Everyone remembers the unsolved mystery of Christopher Creed, but to the teenage residents of Steepleton, Chris is nothing more than past history. Yet to his younger brother Justin, his obsession with finding Chris offers hope.
This as yet unidentified body is the only thing that could possibly bring Chriss former classmates Torey Adams, Bo Richardson, and Ali McDermott back to Steepleton at the same timeand provide Mike with the story of a lifetime: what really happened to Christopher Creed.
An abused boy struggles to break free of his dark past and start a new life
Cameron Miller is pretending to be someone he isn't. When he began presenting himself as Neil Lacey, it was the only way he could think of to distance himself from what Pop had done, to finally climb out of his nightmarish existence. He thought it would be easy--playing the rich kid, sailing his boat--but he didn't count on Cougar. Now Cougar, his father's old accomplice, has tracked Cameron down and presented an ultimatum: Share the wealth or be exposed. Will Cameron give up his new identity to protect Neil's family? Or will he let his search for a new life destroy those around him?
