The Weight of Blood

Laura McHugh

The town of Henbane sits deep in Missouri's Ozark Mountains. Folks there still talk about Lucy Dane's mother, a bewitching stranger who appeared long enough to marry Carl Dane and then vanished when Lucy was just a child. Now on the brink of adulthood, Lucy experiences another loss when her friend Cheri disappears and is then found murdered. Haunted by the two lost girls--the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn't save--Lucy sets out to uncover the mystery behind Cheri's death. An accomplished debut.
