In remote Trout Run, a tiny town in the upper Adirondacks, a high school girl disappears on her way home one day. Was she kidnapped, or did she run away? Was a stranger involved, or was it someone local? When new Police Chief Frank Bennett tries to investigate, he finds himself blocked at every turn by the close-knit townsfolk. No one wants to believe a local was responsible, yet everyone seems to have secrets to hide. Is one of them hiding knowledge about her disappearance? And as the clock ticks for the girl, there's the biggest question of all: is she alive...or dead?
