Short Synopsis
With the dead of a bitter Vermont winter closing in, evil is alive and well in a new novel from author Eric Rickstad.

Full Synopsis
Frank Rath thought he was done with murder when he turned in his detective's badge to become a private investigator and raise a daughter alone. Then the police in his remote rural community of Canaan find an '89 Monte Carlo abandoned by the side of the road, and the beautiful teenage girl who owned the car seems to have disappeared without a trace.

Soon Rath's investigation brings him face-to-face with the darkest abominations of the human soul.

With the consequences of his violent and painful past plaguing him, and young women with secrets vanishing one by one, he discovers once again that even in the smallest towns on the map, evil lurks everywhere—and no one is safe.

"The Silent Girls is Vermont's own True Detective." ---Steve Ulfelder, author of Wolverine Bros. Freight & Storage

"This well-crafted book will have you staying up late, turning pages and afraid to turn off the light." ---Paul Doiron, author of The Poacher's Son

"Finely drawn characters, a narrative that beguiles and surprises and stark, poetic writing make for a novel as dark and brooding as its rural Vermont setting." ---Roger Smith, author of Wake Up Dead
