The past has arrived uninvited at Jason Danvers’s door - and it’s his younger sister, Hayden, a former addict who severed all contact with her family as her life spiraled out of control. Now she’s clean and sober but in need of a desperate favor - she asks Jason and his wife to take care of her teenage daughter for 48 hours while she handles some business in town. But Hayden never returns. And her disappearance brings up more unresolved problems from Jason’s past, including the abrupt departure of his best friend on their high school graduation night 27 years earlier. When a body is discovered in the woods, the mysteries of his sister’s life - and possible death - deepen. And one by one these events will shatter every expectation Jason has ever had about families, about the awful truths that bind them and the secrets that should be taken to the grave.

mmmmaybe but probably not
I have listened to other books by this narrator, and his female characters are not strong, but in this case all of the womens' voices were cloyingly high like a humorous "ditzy" voice. It colored my perception of the female characters and was just bad.
better story better development of characters, very hazy on most everything, no follow through, who was Collin?? why was he even there?? does he not know the difference between a skeleton and a newly dead body?
I doubt I would listen to David Bell’s books again, this was a book club book, there was some discussion, not much, though.
I did like to listen to Dan John Miller, he did make the story worth listening to.
