Overview
From David Bell--bestselling author of Somebody I Used to Know and Cemetery Girl--comes a chilling novel of guilt, regret, and a past which refuses to die...
Three months earlier, Jenna Barton was supposed to meet her lifelong best friend Celia. But when Jenna arrived late, she found that Celia had disappeared--and hasn't been seen again. Jenna has blamed herself for her friend's disappearance every single day since then.
The only piece of evidence is a lone diamond earring found where Celia and Jenna were planning to meet, leading the national media to dub Celia "The Diamond Mom." And even though Jenna has obsessively surfed message boards devoted to missing persons cases, she is no closer to finding any answers--or easing her guilt.
But when her son's new girlfriend--who suddenly arrived in town without a past--disappears, a stricken Jenna begins to unwind the tangled truth behind Celia's tragedy. And as long-buried secrets finally come to light, she discovers how completely lives can be shattered by a few simple lies.

In this tantalizing thriller from Bell (Somebody I Used to Know), the small Kentucky town of Hawks Mill makes the news when Celia Walters disappears near Caldwell Park, where she was supposed to be meeting her friend Jenna Barron late one night. Celia, dubbed the “Diamond Mom” by sensationalist media, dropped one diamond earring at the scene. Jenna feels both guilt and loss as the months pass, as does Ian, Celia’s husband. Relentless pressure from TV reporter Becky McGee and crime show host Reena Huffman intensifies with each new development in the case, including a man’s attempt to pawn Celia’s other diamond earring. In addition to dealing with the media, Jenna must face the scrutiny of police detective Naomi Poole, who’s leading the investigation, and cope with her 15-year-old son, who’s become infatuated with a troubled new girl in town. Bell keeps readers on edge throughout. Agent: Laney Katz Becker, Lippincott, Massie, McQuilkin Literary. (June)
