Red Leaves by Thomas Cook recommended by member Bill Sawisch.

Synopsis

"Thomas Cook writes like a wounded angel, and Red Leaves is one of his masterworks."—Peter Straub

Eric Moore has a stable life in a quiet town. Then, on an ordinary night, his teenage son Keith babysits Amy Giordano, the eight-year-old daughter of a neighboring family. The next morning Amy is missing, and Eric isn't sure his son is innocent. Caught in a vortex of doubt and lies, Eric must find out what happened to Amy Giordano before his—and the community's—suspicions about Keith are proved right.

An Edgar Award Nominee for Best Novel

"Red Leaves is both heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching. A family can be 'briefly held,' and yet so enduring."—New York Daily News

"[Cook is] one of the most suspenseful of crime-fiction writers . . . Readers will glimpse blurred snapshots from their own lives—and be afraid."—Cleveland Plain Dealer

"This disturbing exploration of humans' true motives . . . builds to a rapid and unexpected climax."—Newsweek
