Tom and Abby Stuart had everything: a perfect marriage, successful careers and a beautiful 12-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Then one day, while Caitlin was walking her dog, she vanished without a trace. For a while, her stunned parents grasped at every false hope and followed every empty lead, but the tragedy ended up changing their lives, overwhelming them with guilt and dread and shattering their marriage.
Four years later, Caitlin is found alive—dirty and disheveled yet preternaturally calm. She won’t discuss where she was or what happened. Then the police arrest a suspect connected to the disappearance, but Caitlin refuses to testify. The Stuarts are left with a devastating choice: Let the man who may be responsible for destroying their lives walk away—or take matters into their own hands. When Tom decides to try to uncover the truth for himself, he finds that nothing that has happened yet can prepare him for what he is about to discover.
“A thriller that reads like a collaboration between Michael Connelly and…Joyce Carol Oates” (Will Lavender), Cemetery Girl by David Bell is the kind of mystery you'll be thinking about—and talking about—long after the last page is turned.

I thought this was going to be a good read but found it took a long time to get to the actual story. It made no sense and the ending was soo disappointing. It was so unreal and still did not answer so many questions. Would not read this author again

I thought this book was great. The father blamed himself for his daughter being gone. The mother also blamed him & left him for another man. But he just kept looking for her.
I'm an avid reader and tried this new author thinking with his background, the book would be good. I wouldn't even rate it at average. The father was supposed to be intelligent, but the character just seemed unrealistic. Then the ending was terrible. He gets arrested and that's it! Within a few days they're doing normal things, so unreal. The book made no sense and could've used much more.

First book I've read by this author. Hope his future books are this good. I only hope the print is a little larger as I'm nearing 70 and the print was hard on my eyes. I had to take a few breaks to rest my eyes but still I didn't want to put the book down. I just kept wanting to know what happened next. Very good read....Will look for his future books.
