Overview

From the author of the acclaimed Promise Not to Tell comes a chilling and perfectly plotted tale in which crimes of the past and present blend in a mesmerizing tale of mystery, shattered innocence, guilt, and redemption

On her a way to a job interview, Rhonda never expected to get caught in the middle of a crime. Sitting in her blue Honda at a gas station, she saw a person dressed as a rabbit grab a young girl out of nearby car. Confused by the absurdity of the rabbit costume, Rhonda does nothing at first. By the time she regains her senses, however, the kidnapper and child are gone.

Plagued by guilt, she’s determined to help with the investigation. But as she gets closer to discovering the kidnapper’s identity, she also gets closer to uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of another child—her best friend Lizzy who went missing years before. As Rhonda races to solve the two overlapping mysteries, she rekindles an old romances, learns that people from her past a far different than what they seemed, and ultimately finds liberation.

Filled with compelling, realistic characters, twisting supense, and creepy turns that will have readers flying through the pages, Island of Lost Girls is a remarkable display of narrative genius from a stellar new talent.
