With a teenage couple also missing and Jane Doe seriously ill, the clock is ticking for Darby as she hunts for the dungeon before anyone else disappears or dies.

Travel Guide

BookTrail Boston

This is the Boston of Chris Mooney. A Boston full of menace and bad memories for lead character Darby McCormick.

She begins investigating the case of a missing girl named Carol Cranmore. The more she learns about the case, the more it seems to mirror her own past – a past which includes her and her two friends stumbling across a man murdering a woman in the woods.

The book is set in both modern day Boston and via the many flashbacks to the woods, the dark corners and the even darker recesses of the survivor’s minds.

Boston features well in the book – streets, parks and the inner workings of the Boston Police force and forensic laboratories.
