Synopsis - THE DISAPPEARING

When Lane Fielding fled north Florida after high school for the anonymity of New York City, she never thought she'd return. But twenty years later, this time leaving behind her cheating husband, that's exactly what she and her two daughters have done. Now Lane is tending bar, living under her parents' roof on the historic Fielding Plantation, and planning how to escape the

crimes of her father--crimes that date back to his role as the director of a local boys' reform school. A role that some claim turned sinister. 

 

Things take a turn when just six months after moving back to Florida, Lane's older daughter disappears. Lane initially fears a serial killer--like the one who traumatized north Florida in the 1970s--has again set his sights on her small town. Ten days earlier, a Florida State student disappeared, and ever since, everyone has been keeping a close eye on the town's girls. But when Lane's younger daughter admits to having made an odd new friend, Lane must consider that her older daughter's disappearance is payback for her father's crimes. Or perhaps for her own. 

With reporters descending on the town, chaos reaching a fever pitch, and events taking increasingly surreal and sinister turns, Lane is faced with too many enemies and too little time to bring her daughter safely home.
