When teenager Heather Young disappeared from the small town of Himmel, Wisconsin everyone believed her boyfriend had killed her—though her body was never found. Twenty years later, his little sister Sammy returns to town. She begs her old friend, true crime writer Leah Nash, to prove her brother Eric isn’t a murderer.
But Sammy has no new evidence, and her brother doesn’t want Leah’s help. Leah says no—but she can’t help feeling guilty about it. That feeling gets much worse when Sammy is killed in a suspicious car accident. That’s when the independent, irreverent, unstoppable Leah takes up her cause. Her investigation takes her to some dark and dangerous places, and the truth she finds has an unexpected and shattering impact on her own life.

Read an excerpt:
Susan Hunter is a charter member of Introverts International (which meets the 12th of Never at an undisclosed location). She has worked as a reporter and managing editor, during which time she received a first-place UPI award for investigative reporting and a Michigan Press Association first place award for enterprise/feature reporting.
Susan has also taught composition at the college level, written advertising copy, newsletters, press releases, speeches, web copy, academic papers and memos. Lots and lots of memos. She lives in rural Michigan with her husband Gary, who is a man of action, not words.
During certain times of the day, she can be found wandering the mean streets of small-town Himmel, Wisconsin, dropping off a story lead at the Himmel Times Weekly, or meeting friends for a drink at McClain's Bar and Grill.
My Take: This is the 3rd book in the Leah Nash series and I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the 2nd one (I haven't read the first one but I don't feel you need to read them in order to enjoy them). In this one Leah is looking into the disappearance of a popular girl from 20 some odd years ago. Everyone thinks that the boyfriend killed her as he was the last one to see her. Leah finds alot of things that brings this into doubt. Also in other news the paper that Leah use to work for has moved on the first floor of the building that Leah has just moved into so she has the chance of running into her ex boss who she can't stand. This book has alot going on but it keeps you interested and you are wondering what will happen next.
