Bell’s (Since She Went Away) fraught family thriller puts a number of people through an emotional wringer, but none more than widower Bill Price, who lost his wife to a home accident less than two years earlier. Now he rushes to the Jakesville hospital, where his 15-year-old daughter, Summer, who’s been missing for nearly two days, is in intensive care after being found, unconscious and badly beaten, in a local park. Summer’s best friend, Haley Rodgers, died of her injuries in the park attack. A distraught Bill quickly focuses blame on three boys who were friends of the girls. Secrets emerge about Summer’s life as she remains in a coma. Then a shocking revelation changes everything, and further revelations drive Bill to more and more desperate behavior in an exhausting series of trials and tribulations. Six-city author tour. Agent: Laney Katz Becker, Lippincott, Massie, McQuilkin Literary. (July)
