"Jane loses everything when her teenage daughter is killed in a senseless accident. Jane is devastated, but sometime later, she makes one tiny stab at a new life: she moves from San Francisco to the tiny seaside town of Half Moon Bay. She is inconsolable, and yet, as the months go by, she is able to cobble together some version of a job, of friends, of the possibility of peace. And then, children begin to disappear. And soon, Jane sees her own pain reflected in all the parents in the town. She wonders if she will be able to live through the aching loss, the fear all around her. But as the disappearances continue, she begins to see that what her neighbors are wondering is if it is Jane herself who has unleashed the horror of loss."--

I am familiar with the beautiful setting and therefore was lured into checking out this book. The main character's loss of a daughter combined with the strange compiling murders of the area's young girls kept going around the bend but never quite made it to a satisfying destination. The "who done it?" aspect was flat and lacked pull. The ingredients were there but the recipe off.
