Darby McCormick was in high school when she first encountered the killer: someone murdered a woman in the woods where Darby and her two best friends were partying. His race to silence the witnesses was sure-footed and violent - but somehow Darby survived.
Twenty-five years later, Darby is a crime-scene investigator for the Boston Police Department, and a chilling case—a woman's late-night abduction—has her uncovering strange leads to missing women, past and present. As forensic clues lead her closer to a psychopath called the Traveler, Darby must finally resolve the nightmare of her past and come face-to-face with the killer who is determined to keep the missing—and the horrors they endured at his hands-from ever coming to light.
""The Missing" is the season's most unrelenting thriller. It will keep readers enthralled from its gripping opening chapters to its last shocking page." - George Pelecanos
