Shortlisted for the 2006 Duncan Lawrie Dagger.
A real page turner with a surprising twist in the tail. Set in small town America the book explores dysfunctional families and the difficult subject of a missing child.  Although a tricky theme Cook injects it with both suspense and pathos. It is beautifully written and full of good characterizations.  If you enjoyed this then do try some of his earlier novels including Evidence of Blood  and Interrogation.
