It's happening again. And either Adam's crazy, or he's a kidnapped child's only hope.
Drifter Adam Rutledge is haunted by his childhood, by how helpless he felt when his best friend was abducted and how terrifying it was to see the boy's fate in his nightmares.
Twenty years later Adam is shaken by a vivid dream, one powerful enough to send him back to Cold Springs. But his Appalachian hometown never lost its mistrust of the orphaned boy who drew heartache like a lightning rod. Especially now that another child has been taken.
To find the missing girl, Adam must dig deep and solve the riddle of his own tragic past. When his efforts unleash visions he's spent decades burying, his sanity stretches to the breaking point. And all the while, a man is watching and waiting in the shadows.
A madman who means to kill him.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
The fear returns in Prodigal.
Twenty years ago, children began disappearing from rural Beecham County: a boy on a camping trip, a girl walking home from school…And then it stopped.
Very slowly—month by month, year by year—children began to feel safe again, and parents began to sleep through the night.
Adam Rutledge, who's spent his life adrift since losing his childhood friend to a man in the shadows, finds himself drawn back to Beecham County when another girl disappears. But to stop the unknown predator, Adam must reveal his deepest, darkest secret and embark on a path that may cost him his sanity… and his life.
About the Author
A recovering criminal attorney, Judy K. Walker has enough spare letters after her name (and student loan debt) to suggest that insatiable curiosity is something fictional Tallahassee PI Sydney Brennan inherited from her creator. Fortunately, Judy’s curiosity rarely involves murders.
Born and raised in West Virginia, Judy returns to her roots in her latest project, the Appalachian thriller Dead Hollow trilogy, beginning with the book Prodigal. She writes from her home in Hawaii, where she is surrounded by husband, dogs, cat, and assorted geckos. If she's not tapping away at her computer, she hopes she's in her snorkel fins.
