I was unimpressed by this book. The hero's occupation of hunting down all sorts of unusual objects for his clients was interesting, but nothing much happens for many many pages, and when the mystery develops it's not that gripping. Well written, but the plot doesn't satisfy. Plus the twist at the end wasn't a surprise.

From the cover: Josh Miller has a talent for finding things. So far, the things people have asked him to find - antique tables, old movie posters - have been innocuous enough. And Andrea Montague, the daughter of a local writer, may be his most interesting find so far.

But no one's asked Josh to find the missing fifth victim of an unexplained auto accident - the one who vanished from the scene of the crash without leaving a trail of blood, though he must have been badly hurt. No one's asked Josh to look for the other missing people - residents of Oxrun Station who mysteriously and inexplicably vanished on their birthdays.

SOmeone very definitely doesn't want them to find the clearing full of century-old gravestones, the clearing that feels so evil.

This time, whatever Josh is hunting is hunting him, too ... and it's hungry.
