Marketing copy from NetGalley:
One fine spring day in Niceville, a young boy named Rainey Teague disappears on his way home from school. Literally disappears–security camera footage captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing.
The search for the boy is led by ex-Special Forces veteran Nick Kavanaugh, now a detective with the local police and no stranger to lowlifes and their criminal hijinks. In the nightmare that follows Rainey’s disappearance, Nick and his wife, Kate, a family practice lawyer, find themselves drawn into a shadow world between life and death, where they will come face-to-face with an ancient malevolent power that lies beneath Niceville, darker and older than the mountain forest surrounding its source: a 1,000-foot-deep pit known as Crater Sink.
Niceville will be published on 12 June 2012 by Alfred A. Knopf, an imprint of Knopf Doubleday.
