SYNOPSIS & REVIEWS
Two girls vanished. A woman buried alive. Between two crimes lie decades of secrets yet to be unearthed in a pulse-pounding novel by the Edgar Award–nominated author of Unspeakable Things.
"Setting the standard for top-notch thrillers, The Taken Ones is smart, compelling and filled with utterly real characters. Lourey brings her formidable storytelling talent to the game, and, on top of that, wows us with a deft stylistic touch. This is a one-sitting read!" —Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector and The Watchmaker’s Hand
