Description
Sure to thrill readers of Jenny Milchman, Linda Castillo, and Lisa Gardner, The Girls She Left Behind marks the return of ex–Boston homicide detective Lizzie Snow, the new sheriff's deputy in Maine's Great North Woods.For Lizzie Snow, the ice and snow of her first punishing North Woods winter are dreadful enough. But near the small town of Bearkill a stubborn forest fire now rages out of control, and as embers swirl dangerously in the smoke-filled air, a teenage girl with a history of running away has dropped out of sight again. The locals and the law both think Tara Wylie is up to her old tricks—until her mother receives a terrifying text message. Equally disturbing: Henry Gemerle—a kidnapper and rapist who once held three girls prisoner for fifteen years—has escaped, and may be lurking in Bearkill. As the fire closes in, Lizzie teams up with her boss, Sheriff Cody Chevrier, and state cop Dylan Hudson to search for the missing girl and the wily fugitive. But they're blocked by Tara's mother, a frustrating teller of needless lies and keeper of dark, incomprehensible secrets. Following a trail of grisly clues—a bloodstained motel room, a makeshift coffin in a shallow grave—Lizzie is drawn ever closer to the flames in her race to save an innocent and corner a monster. Someone else also wants to find Tara Wylie and Henry Gemerle, though, for reasons that have nothing to do with mercy or justice. And when they all meet, the inferno threatening Bearkill will pale in comparison to the hell that's about to break loose.Praise for The Girls She Left Behind "[Sarah] Graves writes at full strength when she's focused on this economically depressed region, once the hub of a thriving lumber industry but now mostly the domain of meth cooks, unhappy teenagers and scores of volunteer firefighters battling tenacious blazes in the surrounding forest. . . . [A] rugged landscape with its down-to-earth characters."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times "Graves is firing on all cylinders. Lizzie Snow is a dynamic protagonist, just the right blend of capable and flawed. The fictional town of Bearkill is definitely coming into its own—the richness of the backdrop seems destined only to increase. And Graves has spent years demonstrating an ability to construct textured, nuanced mysteries. Put it all together and The Girls She Left Behind is another worthwhile entry in this series."The Maine Edge "Graves's dark second Lizzie Snow mystery examines the ugly, soul-destroying things that mark the aftermath of a child abduction."Publishers Weekly "Insightful and twisted . . . an action-packed psychological thriller that readers cannot put down . . . This haunting novel is a must-read."RT Book Reviews "[A] tense and fast-paced tale of love gone horribly and fantastically wrong."Kirkus Reviews "Well-observed and craftily orchestrated, The Girls She Left Behind is a solid entry in what is shaping up to be a strong Maine mystery series. Readers are likely to warm to Lizzie Snow and eagerly await her next appearance."Portland Press-Herald "An engrossing and rapid read . . .

The Girls She Left Behind
fullDescription
Sure to thrill readers of Jenny Milchman, Linda Castillo, and Lisa Gardner, The Girls She Left Behind marks the return of ex–Boston homicide detective Lizzie Snow, the new sheriff's deputy in Maine's Great North Woods.
For Lizzie Snow, the ice and snow of her first punishing North Woods winter are dreadful enough. But near the small town of Bearkill a stubborn forest fire now rages out of control, and as embers swirl dangerously in the smoke-filled air, a teenage girl with a history of running away has dropped out of sight again. The locals and the law both think Tara Wylie is up to her old tricks—until her mother receives a terrifying text message.

Equally disturbing: Henry Gemerle—a kidnapper and rapist who once held three girls prisoner for fifteen years—has escaped, and may be lurking in Bearkill. As the fire closes in, Lizzie teams up with her boss, Sheriff Cody Chevrier, and state cop Dylan Hudson to search for the missing girl and the wily fugitive. But they're blocked by Tara's mother, a frustrating teller of needless lies and keeper of dark, incomprehensible secrets.

Following a trail of grisly clues—a bloodstained motel room, a makeshift coffin in a shallow grave—Lizzie is drawn ever closer to the flames in her race to save an innocent and corner a monster. Someone else also wants to find Tara Wylie and Henry Gemerle, though, for reasons that have nothing to do with mercy or justice. And when they all meet, the inferno threatening Bearkill will pale in comparison to the hell that's about to break loose.
Praise for The Girls She Left Behind

"[Sarah] Graves writes at full strength when she's focused on this economically depressed region, once the hub of a thriving lumber industry but now mostly the domain of meth cooks, unhappy teenagers and scores of volunteer firefighters battling tenacious blazes in the surrounding forest. . . . [A] rugged landscape with its down-to-earth characters."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

"Graves is firing on all cylinders. Lizzie Snow is a dynamic protagonist, just the right blend of capable and flawed. The fictional town of Bearkill is definitely coming into its own—the richness of the backdrop seems destined only to increase. And Graves has spent years demonstrating an ability to construct textured, nuanced mysteries. Put it all together and The Girls She Left Behind is another worthwhile entry in this series."The Maine Edge
"Graves's dark second Lizzie Snow mystery examines the ugly, soul-destroying things that mark the aftermath of a child abduction."Publishers Weekly

"Insightful and twisted . . . an action-packed psychological thriller that readers cannot put down . . . This haunting novel is a must-read."RT Book Reviews

"[A] tense and fast-paced tale of love gone horribly and fantastically wrong."Kirkus Reviews

"Well-observed and craftily orchestrated, The Girls She Left Behind is a solid entry in what is shaping up to be a strong Maine mystery series. Readers are likely to warm to Lizzie Snow and eagerly await her next appearance."Portland Press-Herald

"An engrossing and rapid read . . . Graves is clearly an expert mystery writer and the plot contains plenty of unexpected tangles and complexities to keep fans of the genre well-entertained."Pop Mythology

        Graves’s dark second Lizzie Snow mystery (after 2015’s Winter at the Door) examines the ugly, soul-destroying things that mark the aftermath of a child abduction. At age 15, Jane Crimmins is kidnapped from a party in a New Haven, Conn., park, along with her 15-year-old cousin, Cam Petry. Jane escapes soon afterward, but she tells no one of her experience or that three other victims remain in captivity. Fifteen years later, the police arrest Jane’s abductor and rescue three young women, including Cam, from his New Haven house. Now Jane lives in terror that someone will find out what she did—and didn’t—do. Jane retreats to Bearkill, Maine, where Lizzie, a sheriff’s deputy, hopes against hope to find her niece, missing since her sister’s murder eight years before. A tough cookie, Lizzie can’t resist getting involved in the case of another missing girl, whose mother is less than forthcoming. Meanwhile, a fire raging in the nearby woods serves as an objective correlative of the case, burning all who touch it. Agent: Jane Rotrosen, Jane Rotrosen Literary Agency.

        November 15, 2015
        A case hits close to home both literally and figuratively for Maine deputy sheriff Lizzie Snow. Life changes dramatically when, fueled by a tip that her long-missing 10-year-old niece, Nicki, may have been spotted near Bangor, Lizzie takes a job working for Sheriff Cody Chevrier in Aroostook County. Gone is her Boston high-rise overlooking the river. Gone are the nights of clubbing with pals. Here in Bearkill, a night out means a trip to Area 51, a local dive bar, with Trey Washburn, DVM, owner of Great North Woods Animal Care, or a dinner of donuts and diet Coke shared with Dylan Hudson, a fellow cop she used to date until she found out he was married. Lizzie gets a jolt when 15-year-old Tara, daughter of local firefighter Peg Wylie, goes missing. Tara's disappearance is all too similar to Nicki's abduction nine years ago. But Lizzie's world is thrown completely out of kilter when Jane Crimmins turns up in Bearkill shortly after Tara drops out. The deputy remembers Jane from a discovery in New Haven that made headlines while Lizzie was still working in Boston. Three young women had been locked in a basement by sociopath Henry Gemerle. One of them was Cam Petry, Jane's cousin. Gemerle was remanded to a forensic mental hospital after being deemed unfit for trial. But once he escapes, Lizzie has a hunch where he's headed, and that hunch can only spell danger for Tara. Although they're also set in Maine, Graves' Jacobia Tiptree and Ellie White cozies (A Bat in the Belfry, 2014, etc.) are a far cry from this tense and fast-paced tale of love gone horribly and fantastically wrong.

        Author of the hugely best-selling "Home Repair Is Homicide" series, Graves got less cozy with her "Lizzie Snow" series, launched in January 2015 with the LJ-starred Winter at the Door. In this sequel, Joan Crimmins lives in Bearkill, ME, far from the media glare after spending ten years as a captive of Henry Gemmerle. Then Henry escapes from the prison clinic.
