1939. In the small, rural community of Augusta Falls, Georgia, twelve-year-old Joseph Vaughan learns of the brutal assault and murder of a young girl, a classmate he knew better than anyone in his class, a girl he quietly loved. The murder is the first in a series of killings that will plague the community over the next decade. Compelled by fear and duty, Joseph gathers a group of friends to form "The Guardians," who vow to watch over the young girls of Augusta Falls. But the murderer evades them and they watch helplessly as one child after another is taken. Even when the killings cease, a shadow of fear follows Joseph for the rest of his life, and the past won't stay buried, even fifty years later.--From publisher's description

When Sherif John Gaines is called down to the riverside, it is to supervise the recovery of the body of a teenage girl. The corpse is perfectly preserved - she could have died yesterday. But the locals of Whytesburg, Missisippi, are in for a shock. For Nancy Denton - a girl missing for over two decades - has come back to them from the cold embrace of the riverbank. In 1954, on a perfect summer evening in August, sixteen-year-old Nancy walked into the woods, never to be seen again. Now she's been found and her mother can finally put her memory to rest. But Nancy's body bears horrific mutilations that suggest she was subjected to a terrifying ritual, an evil form of voodoo magic. Gaines discovers that Nancy's tight-knit group of friends were present the night she disappeared and now he must find out what - if anything - they know. But none of them want to talk about that time, or their relationship with the beautiful and vivacious Nancy. As Gaines digs ever deeper into the dark secrets of the town he is forced to confront his own demons. And when a new series of deaths begin in the wake of the discovery, Gaines must find the answer to two questions: Who really took Nancy that summer night? And what new evil has been released by digging her up?

But when the newspaper reported a 4th murder, when they gave the killer a name and details of his horrendous crimes, there were few people who could ignore it. Detective Robert Miller is assigned to the case. Rapidly things begin to complicate. The victims do not officially exist. Their personal details do not register on any known systems. The harder Miller works, the less it makes sense. And as Miller unearth ever more disturbing facts, he starts to face truths so far-removed from his own reality that he begins to fear for his life"--Pub. description
