This was a pretty good page turner about a serial killer who is out on parole due to a technicality and living in an old formerly abandoned house near an upscale inn and restaurant. An eleven-year-old girl who resides at the inn with her family suddenly turns up missing and of course the focus is on the killer living close by. But did the girl get abducted or did she simply run away? And if she was abducted, is the serial killer the culprit or is it someone else. This one keeps you guessing but I think I had it figured out about midway through the novel. I would mostly recommend this as a good thriller with a Hannibal Lecter-like villain but there was one loose end that was never clarified. I won't give away details of this because it would be a spoiler; however, this did distract slightly from the story for me.
