Young Jude Brighton has been missing for three days, and while the search for him is in full swing in the small town of Deer Valley, Oregon, the locals are starting to lose hope. They're well aware that the first forty-eight hours are critical and after that, the odds usually point to a worst-case scenario. And despite Stevie Clark's youth, he knows that, too; he's seen the cop shows. He knows what each ticking moment may mean for Jude, his cousin and best friend.
That, and there was that boy, Max Larsen-the one from years ago, found dead after also disappearing under mysterious circumstances. And then there were the animals: pets gone missing out of yards. For years, the residents of Deer Valley have murmured about these unsolved crimes . . . and that a killer may still be lurking around their quiet town. Now, fear is reborn-and for Stevie, who is determined to find out what really happened to Jude, the awful truth may be too horrifying to imagine.

"Narrator Eric Michael Summerer expertly captures a troubled child's nightmare reality. He builds a lingering sense of dread that turns this slow burn of a horror novel into a taut and addictive listening experience. Stevie Clark's cousin, Jude, has vanished, and after three days, the community is losing hope he'll be found. Desperate to find Jude, Stevie begins to uncover stories about missing pets and a murdered boy, and begins to realize that something horrific is lurking in his small town. Summerer grounds listeners in Stevie's reality, performing each distinct character the way he or she sounds in his young mind. Playing up Stevie's bewilderment and growing panic, Summerer keeps listeners thoroughly unsettled right up to the final, stunning, twist in this superb story.
