Description

New York Times bestselling author Kate White returns with a gripping story about a true-crime reporter uncovering the secrets that lie beneath the surface of a placid small town, perfect for readers of Jessica Knoll, Alafair Burke, and Liv Constantine.

Blonde. Beautiful. A loving mother. And missing since Monday.

On a sunny morning in late September, Shannon Blaine sets off for a jog along the rural roads near her home in Lake George, New York. It's her usual a.m. routine, her "me time" after dropping the kids off at school...except on this day she never returns.

Is her husband lying when he says he has no clue where she is? Could Shannon have split on her own, overwhelmed by the pressures of her life? Or is she the victim of a sexual predator who had been prowling the area and snatched her before she knew what was happening.

True crime writer Bailey Weggins, on assignment for the website Crime Beat, heads north from New York City to report on the mysterious disappearance. An anonymous tip soon leads Bailey to a grisly, bone-chilling discovery. Every town has its secrets, Bailey reminds herself, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. She keeps digging for answers until—when it's almost too late—she unearths the terrifying truth.

Bailey teams with local reporter Alice Hatfield, and both find cracks in the Blaines’ lives that could have been a factor.

        Intrepid--and stylish!--crime reporter Bailey Weggins finds herself on the front line of a murder investigation in White's (The Gutsy Girl Handbook: Your Manifesto for Success, 2018, etc.) latest.When news of missing jogger Shannon Blaine goes viral, Bailey heads to upstate New York to investigate and report for online magazine Crime Beat. Beautiful Shannon appears to have led an ideal life; she had a handsome, successful husband, two adorable kids, a condo in Florida, and a schedule flexible enough for the ritual of her daily jog. But of course there were also some red flags. She had recently started attending Catholic services after years of lapse, and her best friend noted that she seemed "kind of off" when they spoke early on the day of her disappearance. Then Bailey and local reporter Alice Hatfield get an anonymous tip that sends them to an abandoned Catholic retreat center where they discover Shannon's body--as well as two others--wrapped in trash bags and hidden in a closet. Racing against time as the story cools, Bailey must discover the truth behind Shannon's perfect facade--before the murderer decides to get rid of loose ends. There's not much depth to White's mystery or to Bailey, though she does suffer some loss during the course of the book, but it's fun and fast-paced, easy to read. Bailey is, in many ways, a 21st-century descendant of Edna Buchanan's crime reporter Britt Montero, who ran around Miami for her true-crime scoops. The setting may be colder, but like Britt, Bailey is fearless, determined, and always fashionable.A grown-up Nancy Drew for grown-up girl detectives.

        Starred review from April 1, 2019

        Shannon Blaine leaves her Lake George, NY, home to go jogging one morning, and disappears. Because she's a beautiful blonde wife and mother, the search draws some media attention. When Bailey Weggins agrees to cover the disappearance for an online magazine, she feels the adrenaline rush of investigating a case again and teams up with Alice Hatfield, a local reporter. The two quickly develop a grudging respect for each other, and when Bailey receives an anonymous call, she trusts Alice enough to ask her to accompany her to an old retreat center. They then discover Shannon's body but also the bodies of two other people. Once the news breaks, Bailey and Alice realize that they might have drawn the attention of a serial killer. However, both reporters are determined to uncover the truth in this riveting mystery with layers of stories and crimes. A strong feeling of menace runs throughout this intricately plotted eighth book in the series, following Even If It Kills Her. VERDICT Readers who appreciate investigative reporters caught up in dramatic stories, such as James Ziskin's "Ellie Stone" series or Thomas Kies's "Geneva Chase" mysteries, will savor this intense page-turner that never lets up.--Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN
