BeschreibungWhen nineteen-year-old local waitress, Wendy White, disappears, the small town of Haeden, New York, is shaken to its core. Nothing like this has ever happened in this rural idyll and the police make little headway with the case, assuming that Wendy most likely ran away. But, six months later, Wendy's tortured body is found in the nearby woods. And she has only been dead a matter of days...
Local reporter, Stacy Flynn, desperate for a big story, knows that Wendy's case could be her big break. But, with little help from the local police, she's forced to investigate alone - though no one in the town is willing to talk about it.
Told from various perspective's - Wendy's, Stacy's and high school student Alice's - this compelling tale of murder, revenge and violence builds slowly and eerily to a shocking and unforgettable conclusion.
Pressestimmen"A mixture of The Lovely Bones and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Booklist "A passionately angry ... and shocking book. Cara Hoffman not only discovers the heart of darkness in small town Haeden, but brilliantly dissects it." -- Rosamund Lupton, Bestselling Author Of Sister "Beautiful ... what begins as the suspenseful story of a rural American murder grows into a dark, disquieting and urgently fascinating examination of the violence and concealment practised by a whole society ... this is an impassioned, intelligent and important work of art." -- Chris Cleave "Intelligent and gripping stuff" Financial Times "Dark, atmospheric tale of murder in a small-town world."
