The Girl Who Was Taken

The Girl Who Was Taken

By  Charlie Donlea

Two women – one the sister of a missing girl and the other a victim who escaped – come together to unmask a killer in this heart-stopping, unputdownable thriller from a sensational new voice in suspense fiction.

If you loved THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, don't miss this sensational suspense thriller, that will keep you guessing to the very end . . .

Her truth is only half the story . . .

Megan McDonald is a high school senior when she disappears from the small town of Emerson Bay. Miraculously, after two weeks held captive, she escapes from a bunker hidden deep in the woods.

Now, one year on, Megan is a national celebrity thanks to her bestselling book, Missing. It’s an inspiring story - except for one inconvenient detail.

There was a second girl who was taken. Her classmate Nicole Cutty.

Livia Cutty is a forensic pathologist. Every time a Jane Doe arrives at the morgue she wonders if it’s her missing sister. However it’s the body of a young man, an apparent suicide, who finally offers the first clue to Nicole’s fate. So Livia reaches out to Megan for help.

But Megan knows more than she’s revealed. Flashes of memory are coming together – and they are pointing to something darker and more monstrous than anything her chilling memoir describes.

The Abduction

Emerson Bay, North Carolina
August 20, 2016
11:22 p.m.

Darkness had forever been part of her life.

She looked for it and flirted with it. Became quaint with it and charmed it in a way foreign to most. Morbidly of late, she convinced herself about the joys of its company. That she preferred the blackness of death to the light of existence. Until tonight. Until she stood in front of an abyss that was dead and blank in a way she had never encountered, a night sky without stars. When Nicole Cutty found herself in this chasm between life and death, she chose life. And she ran like hell.
