Island of Lost Girls

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

While parked at a gas station, Rhonda sees something so incongruously surreal that at first she hardly recognizes it as a crime in progress. She watches, unmoving, as someone dressed in a rabbit costume kidnaps a young girl. Devastated over having done nothing, Rhonda joins the investigation. But the closer she comes to identifying the abductor, the nearer she gets to the troubling truth about another missing child: her best friend, Lizzy, who vanished years before.

From the author of the acclaimed Promise Not to Tell comes a chilling and mesmerizing tale of shattered innocence, guilt, and ultimate redemption.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 03, 2008 – At the start of McMahon's haunting second novel (after Promise Not to Tell), recent college grad Rhonda Farr witnesses a child abduction in front of a convenience store in Pike's Crossing, Vt. Ernestine Ernie Florucci willingly leaves her mother's car because her six-foot-tall abductor is wearing a rabbit suit. Rhonda remembers her best friend Lizzy's father entertaining her and Lizzy in a rabbit costume in 1993, and vanishing soon after. Three years later, Lizzy disappeared en route to high school. Guilt over her inability to stop Ernie's abduction spurs Rhonda to join the search for the girl. She recalls the summer that Lizzy's older brother, Peter, had them all perform Peter Pan, which was a great success, but there were dark secrets beneath the makeshift stage. McMahon expertly shifts between pivotal events in the past and present-day action, building tension to a resolution both poignant and shattering.

Island of Lost Girls

Couldn't put it down! The author does an excellent job of keeping you guessing until the end.

Great Read!

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down till I had completed reading it. I would definitely recommend.

Worth the read!

I really enjoyed this book. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing. It has two storylines - past & present, but through the protagonist, they are intertwined. It's not a long book and I completed it in a few days, in part because I wanted to keep reading.
