9780099558484: So Much Pretty

'A man can only take so much pretty walking back and forth in front of him.'

When nineteen-year-old Wendy White disappears, the small town of Haeden, New York, is shaken to its core. The police are unable to trace the missing waitress; everyone assumes that she has run away. But, six months later, Wendy's tortured body is found in the nearby woods. She has only been dead for a matter of days.

With no one willing to talk, the investigation slows to a halt. But local reporter Stacy Flynn and high school student Alice Piper have their own reasons for finding out what really happened.

The truth behind Wendy's disappearance has a devastating effect on the town: what was once a rural idyll is now the backdrop to murder, violence and revenge.

Review:

"A mixture of The Lovely Bones and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" ( Booklist)

" A passionately angry ... and shocking book. Cara Hoffman not only discovers the heart of darkness in small town Haeden, but brilliantly dissects it." (Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Sister)

" Beautiful ... what begins as the suspenseful story of a rural American murder grows into a dark, disquieting and u rgently fascinating examination of the violence and concealment practised by a whole society ... this is an impassioned, intelligent and important work of art." (Chris Cleave)

" Intelligent and gripping stuff" ( Financial Times)

" Dark, atmospheric tale of murder in a small-town world." ( Stylist)

Book Description:

Murder, revenge and violence strike a small American town in this startling debut novel.
