In the fall of 1998, four girls disappeared from Redwood, a small town just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. All of them were young. All of them were beautiful. None of them were found alive. Drew’s mother, Willow, was one of those girls.


Seventeen years later, Paige, Drew’s girlfriend, disappears from school. When she’s found dead, the details of her murder are eerily similar to his mother’s. Residents fear the return of the Sleeping Beauty Strangler, and Drew’s family is thrown back into the spotlight.


Things are a bit different this time around because Drew has seen the killer.


What’s worse is the killer knows it.


Can he untangle the details of both murders while under the watchful gaze of the killer? Can he keep his loved ones safe, or will he die before bringing the murderer to justice?

What readers are saying ...

You're going to try to figure it out, and you're going to be wrong. Most likely more than once.



Next Day Gone is an enjoyable whodunnit that will appeal to both youth and adult mystery/thriller lovers alike.



And the, I didn't see all of it coming, but I love how the book ended.
