Description

On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote gold mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins, and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so that they can learn what happened. With them is a psychic, and a paranormal photographer--as the town is rumored to be haunted. A party that tried to explore the town years ago was never heard from again. What this crew is about to discover is that twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.

Review quote

"Brilliant...the surprises begin early and continue until the very last page. But Abandon is not merely an exciting thriller with a terrific plot and gangbuster ending; the writing here sings; the characters live; and the universal themes of greed and evil resonate long after the final sentence." --John Lescroart

"Written with the breathless grace of a Western sunset, Abandon is more than a nonstop thriller--it's a riveting morality tale that will haunt you well past the final pages. Evocative, impassioned, and damn near impossible to put down." --Marcus Sakey

"Abandon is terrific...a great storyteller hitting his stride." --Lee Child
