The Silent Girls (2014)
(Canaan Crime, book 1)
Eric Rickstad
"Finely drawn characters, a narrative that beguiles and surprises and stark, poetic writing make for a novel as dark and brooding as its rural Vermont setting. The Silent Girls is both an exceptional detective story and a terrifying meditation on good and evil."
