“John Hart has written a thriller about a young boy searching for his missing twin that will have you on edge and pulling for the hero from the very beginning. The strong characters and twists in the plot had me white-knuckled until I turned the final page.”
-- Marc Galvin, The Bookstore Plus, Lake Placid, NY
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Summer '10 Reading Group List
“This is a haunting, beautifully written book about a teenage boy's quest to find his sister, who's been missing for a year. His own quest is mirrored by a police Detective who has let things in his own life slip as he becomes as obsessed with the case as the missing girl's brother. Using a small town as his canvas, Hart beautifully interweaves character and plot to give a completely compelling and original narrative, one that stays with you long after finishing the book.”
-- Robin Agnew, Aunt Agatha's Ltd., Ann Arbor, MI
