Abstract:

People like Matt McBride. Matt was barely out of junior high when the mutilated body of the first victim--a popular, pretty teenager--was uncovered in the desolate New Jersey Pine Barrens. Although he had hardly known the girl, Matt has long felt guilty at not having been able somehow to prevent the atrocity. Its horror has haunted Matt's memory for years, and now another attractive young woman has disappeared. Matt knew this victim, too. Just possibly he knew her more intimately than he is prepared to admit.
