Description
(CWA Gold Dagger Award for 2010 Crime Novel of the Year) Billy Peters disappeared 18 years ago, assumed to be the seventh victim of serial killer Arnold Avery, in this 2010 Gold Dagger Award winner. Only Billy's mother is convinced he is alive, and she stands guard at the front window of her home, waiting for her son to return, while her remaining family fragments. Now her 12-year-old grandson Steven, determined to find his uncle's body and help the family heal, writes to the pedophile in Longmoor prison.

"An unsettling novel, with the sort of devastating emotional content that makes it both difficult to read and difficult to forget.... Unfortunately for Steven, Avery quickly gains control of the conversation, which allows him to live in glorious memory of his killings.... It's a riveting journey ... with Bauer remaining fully invested in her troubled characters: one a clever, vicious manipulator; the other an unappreciated, bullied 12-year-old, desperate for love."Booklist (starred review)
