Waiting on Wednesday (2)
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I saw this book being currently read by oneuponaseries and after reading the summary I was hooked.
Summary from Goodreads:
Release date: October 11, 2011
The case of a boy missing for 40 years explodes into the present in Todd Ritter’s second novel, featuring Perry Hollow Police Chief Kat Campbell.
On the same night that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, nine-year-old Charlie Olmstead jumped on his bike to see if he could get a better look. It was the last anyone ever saw of him. After Perry Hollow Police Chief Jim Campbell found Charlie’s bike caught up above a waterfall, he assumed the worse, and so did everyone else except Charlie's mother.
Years later, Eric Olmstead—and famous author and Charlie’s brother—has come back to bury his mother and fulfill her last request: Find his brother. To do so he goes to the current police chief and his former sweetheart Kat Campell, and it isn’t long before they discover that finding Charlie was his mother's secret obsession, and while she never found him she uncovered clues suggesting that he wasn’t the only victim.
