Summary
"A chilling story about a mother haunted by her past. Jane, proud mother of a teenage daughter, loses everything in one senseless accident. In mourning, she makes one tiny stab at a new life: she moves from San Francisco to the tiny seaside town of Half Moon Bay. As the months go by, she is able to cobble together some version of life: a job, friends, and the distant possibility of peace. And then, children begin to disappear. Soon, Jane sees her own pain renewed in all the parents in the town. She wonders if she will be able to live through the aching loss, the fear all around her. As the disappearances continue, she begins to see that what her neighbors are wondering is whether it is Jane herself who has somehow brought the horror with her"--
