    ALL THE WAY HOME.

    Lake Charlotte. A quiet little town in upstate New York. The perfect place to raise a family. Or is it? People still talk about that summer ten years ago when four teenage girls mysteriously disappeared. No on remembers that summer more vividly than Rory Connolly. Her older sister Carleen vanished from her bed in the middle of the night, never to be seen again. The fear and uncertainty of Carleen's fate destroyed Rory's family and her only escape was college. When she left Lake Charlotte, she vowed never to return. But now, ten years later, Rory Connolly is coming home.

    It's only supposed to be for the summer while her brother's away. Until then, Rory has to cope with her mother's slow descent into insanity and her rebellious teenage sister Molly. The arrival of Barrett Maitland only makes things worse. The handsome stranger knows to much about the past and is constantly asking Rory questions. She wants to trust him, but can't; she's caught him in one lie too many. It's almost as if he has something to hide.

    Then, on the anniversary of the very first disappearance, another teenage girl vanishes. Just like Carleen. Once again, Lake Charlotte is gripped in fear, and for Rory, it's the past nightmare revisited. Only this time, her own life is in jeopardy. For walking through the streets of the town, wearing a familiar face, is a cunning killer with a chilling personal message:

    "Welcome home, Rory. You've been gone such a long time, but now that you're back, you're never going to leave Lake Charlotte again..."
