While the investigations go on in Dallas and Baton Rouge after the disappearance of a senator’s daughter, FBI agents CJ Johnston and Paige Riley are assigned to the sleepy backwoods of East Texas. Random disappearances dating back fifty years and more raise red flags that point to the tiny, isolated community of Hoganville, where CJ and Paige go undercover at an all-girls school. Feeling the assignment is nothing more than a dead-end, they integrate themselves into the lives of the teachers and staff, more concerned with getting past the one-night stand they shared six months earlier than actually thinking Hoganville was somehow connected to the disappearances. But soon, the odd behavior of the townspeople has them convinced something sinister lurks there. Something, perhaps, that even the residents of Hoganville don’t know about.

Then Ice shook his head. “No. No way.” “But they’ve been acting strange,” Billy said. “No. They’re just messing with us.” Don looked at them thoughtfully but said nothing. A few minutes later, just as Ice was about to submit his report, the elevator opened and an attractive woman with a younger man in tow got off. Ice frowned,

And for the first time in over a hundred years, there was no true Hogan to carry on. Fiona was as close as she had, and Fiona had proven to be faithful. If she bore a female child, then he would be happy. He would be able to mate again. The true Hogan line would end, but her reign would continue. The thought thrilled her, almost as much as the upcoming

window. “You need some help?” she offered, pointing to the stove. “You can set the table, please,” she said. CJ went to the cabinets, finding amusement in the mismatched plates. “Are you going to be able to eat off of these for six months?” Paige glanced at her and smiled. “I’m not a snob, you know. But really, how hard would it have been to buy a matching set?” She set the spatula down. “Okay, I’ll admit, it’s driving me crazy. And on our next trip to San Augustine, I’m buying new ones.” CJ

Her appetite had increased in the last month but never to this state. She was salivating as she stabbed a piece of meat from the pot. She bit into it, surprised—and delighted—that it was still nearly raw. She took the pot off of the stove, not caring that it was not entirely heated. She grabbed a spoon, eating directly from

Aims, this cannot wait. I’m already on my way.” “What is this about?” “I’ll explain when we get there.” He disconnected before the chief could ask further questions. Yes, he concurred that Richard Barr was involved. However, just the fact that he allowed Fiona and Gretchen—and sometimes Belden—to come and go at will hardly implicated him in the disappearances.
