Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The entire town thinks sixteen-year-old Sadie Saunders is dead. Missing now for a week, they say she was murdered. And they think they know who did it. Sadie's five best friends aren't so sure, and they vow to find out the truth. So they pack their bags and head into the woods where Sadie was last seen. But they're not just friends, they're suspects. And each of them has a secret. As the landscape opens up, and the darkness closes in, the reality of their situation becomes clear... This was never really a search party. It's a witch hunt. And not everyone will make it home alive."-- Provided by publisher.

    The disappearance of 16-year-old Sadie Saunders brings Detective Inspector Robin Fleet back to the home town he left 19 years earlier, after the death of his younger sister, Jeannie. Fleet has come to specialize in finding lost persons, but after days of fruitless searching for Sadie, concern grows that his earlier personal loss is affecting his work. Meanwhile, Sadie's five closest friends, including her twin brother, Luke, gather to search the woods, while the official search centers on the river, near where her bag and bloody jacket were found. The teens' search party ends in a tragic death, with each of them separately trying to explain to the police events that were blurred by fear and alcohol. At the center of it all, in Fleet's view, are Sadie's parents, who worshipped her, tolerated Luke, and wished they had never had 12-year-old Dylan. This compelling view of the pressures teenagers face and the effects of bullying is given resonance by its various young voices, with a satisfying final twist as Fleet determines that what he dreaded is true.
