The first child vanishes early one evening, rocking the calm border town of Argon. Twelve-year-old Robbie Larsen watches his friend disappear but buries the haunting truth in a bid for acceptance.
As the search stretches from hours into days, suspicion and fear cast some into a frenzy and turn the spotlight square on the newest citizens of Argon: the Larsens. When a second child disappears, Robbie discovers a dark secret that threatens to tear the town—and his family—apart.
Argon is a story of a search for community among strangers, the devastating effect of secrets we hide and choices we make, and the subtle inhumanity that lurks inside us all.
