Relocating to the small
town of Brindle to edit
the local newspaper seems like a wonderful opportunity for Todd Fielding, despite its lack of nightlife and amenities. Todd and her graduate-student husband, Barney, are tapped out financially, and the job includes rent-free housing--that alone makes it too attractive to pass up.

Soon after Todd's arrival, teenager Jodie Schuster disappears. When Todd attempts to gather facts for a story, the police are uncooperative. The girl's a runaway--case closed. But Todd isn't satisfied with that explanation, and careful digging reveals something more sinister: For two decades, Brindle's young girls have been vanishing. Worse, people don't want to know why, which makes Todd determined to learn the truth, no matter how unpopular her search is.

Wilhelm creates a deliciously
terrifying atmosphere that grips the
reader the instant Todd sets foot in
Brindle. Added to the finely drawn
characters and the riveting mystery,
it makes for a story that begs to
be read in one sitting. (Oct., 368
pp., $23.95)
