Where the Water Falls, a debut thriller by investigative journalist Jeremy Finley. When four-year-old William Chance vanishes from the woods behind his family’s home, there’s only one witness: an older brother who whispers “the lights took him” and never speaks again. As every resource is exhausted, the boy’s grandmother, Lynn, must finally admit to herself that she’s heard the phrase “the lights took him” before. A long-buried secret from her past may be the only key to finding her missing grandchild. A two-book deal to Peter Wolverton at St. Martins Press by Paul Stevens.
