Disappearances. Murder. The price of silence in a small town. In dire need of a job, Todd Fielding accepts the offer to work at The Brindle Times—even if she has to move to the lackluster town of Brindle, Oregon. As she settles into her new home, Todd is fully prepared to adapt to the boredom of small-town life, but her preconceptions of Brindle are completely shattered when a local girl disappears. Even more shocking to Todd is the town’s sheer indifference to the incident. No one—not even the police—appear particularly concerned. When Todd looks deeper into the story, she discovers that five other girls have “run away” from Brindle under strange circumstances over the past twenty years, and no one seems interested in finding them. As she sets out to uncover the history of a town that has cloaked itself in secrecy for far too long, evidence of manipulation and cold-blooded murder begin to arise—and Todd may be the next victim to pay the deadly price of silence.
