“The careful writing will hold [the] secret under wraps until the startling conclusion.” —School Library Journal
When college reporter Mike Mavic finds out that a body’s been found in the small town of Steepleton, New Jersey—four years after Christopher Creed mysteriously disappeared—he hops a plane to get the story that will undoubtedly launch his journalistic career. But what Mike finds is a strange town suffering under a cloud of bad luck. And to the unstable sixteen-year-old Justin Creed who’s obsessed with his older brother’s memory, discovering what really happened to Chris Creed is a matter of life and death.
