"If ever there was a tale for a moonless night, a high wind, and a creaking floor, this is it....Very rich, very scary, very satisfying". -- Stephen King

One by One, Three Young Girls vanish in a small town in upstate New York. With the first disappearance, the townspeople begin to mistrust outsiders. When the second girl goes missing, neighbors and childhood friends start to eye each other warily. And with the third disappearance, the sleepy little town awakens to a full-blown nightmare. In The Church of Dead Girls, Stephen Dobyns probes the ruinous effects of suspicion. As panic mounts and citizens take the law into their own hands, no one is immune as old rumors, old angers, and old hungers come to the surface to reveal the secret history of this seemingly genteel town and the dark impulses of its inhabitants.

"A riveting page-turner". -- Newsday

"An incredibly haunting thriller". -- Redbook

"Keeps you turning the pages without insulting your intelligence". -- New York Daily News
