Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

When Christopher Creed, the class freak and whipping boy, suddenly disappears without a trace, everyone speculates on what could have happened to him. Soon fingers begin pointing, and several lives are changed forever.

Synopsis:

The often-tortured class weirdo has disappeared, leaving an enigmatic note on the school library computer. Is he a runaway, a suicide, or a murder victim?
