A missing child is every parent's nightmare. What comes next is even worse in this riveting thriller from the bestselling author of Bring Her Home and Somebody I Used to Know. Tom and Abby Stuart had everything: a perfect marriage, successful careers, and a beautiful twelve-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Then one day she vanished without a trace. For a while they grasped at every false hope and followed every empty lead, but the tragedy ended up changing their lives, overwhelming them with guilt and dread, and shattering their marriage. Four years later, Caitlin is found alive--dirty and disheveled, yet preternaturally calm. She won't discuss where she was or what happened. And when the police arrest a suspect connected to the disappearance, Caitlin refuses to testify, leaving the Stuarts with a choice: Let the man who may be responsible for destroying their lives walk away, or take matters into their own hands. And when Tom decides to try to uncover the truth for himself, he finds that nothing that has happened yet can prepare him for what he is about to discover.show more

Review quote

""Cemetery Girl" is a smasher. It twists and turns and never lets go, and...it could happen just this way." Jacquelyn Mitchard, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Deep End of the Ocean" ""Cemetery Girl" is more than just an utterly compelling thriller-- and it certainly is that. David Bell's stellar novel is also a haunting meditation on the ties that bind parent to child, husband to wife, brother to brother--and what survives even under the most shattering possible circumstance. An absolutely riveting, absorbing read not to be missed." Lisa Unger, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Darkness, My Old Friend" "Trust me: you have never read a missing persons story like this one....A fast, mean head trip of a thriller that reads like a collaboration between Michael Connelly and the gothic fiction of Joyce Carol Oates, "Cemetery Girl" is one of those novels that you cannot shake after it's over. A winner on every level." Will Lavender, NYT bestselling author of "Dominance" ""Cemetery Girl" grabbed me by the throat on page one and never let up. An intense, unrelenting powerhouse of a book, and the work of a master." John Lescroart, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Damage" "A smart, tense, creepy take on the story of a missing daughter, told by her far-from-perfect father. If you think you know this tale--from all- too-familiar newspaper accounts, from lesser movies and books--then this terrific novel will make you think otherwise." Brock Clarke, national bestselling author of "Exley "and "An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England""show more
