"Spectacularly gripping...a must-read for lovers of finely-crafted psychological mysteries."
"Alluring...reminds us of the explosiveness to come in Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl or Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island. Something is off. And something is steadily getting worse.
-INDEPENDENT BOOK REVIEW
"Mind-blowing...[the ending] hits us like a ton of bricks."
"Chappel's ability to inject psychological tension and quiet revelations from the start will keep readers engrossed and on edge throughout the story. Well-steeped in a sense of place, purpose, and small town interconnections past and present, Crickets is a riveting suspense that won't disappoint.”
-MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
Kara Peterson last drove away from Paige, Ohio ten years ago after reporting her rape.
She thought she knew who was responsible. She thought it was over.
But she doesn’t know everything that happened that night.
When her father passes away unexpectedly, Kara’s forced to return to Paige. It should be a safe little town, especially for the daughter of its favorite sheriff, but something’s not right with Kara’s memories. There are times that have gone missing. In fact, there are more and more of them the longer she stays in town.
Maybe it’s her hometown getting to her. Or maybe it’s just him.
