Part 2 of the Lizzie Snow Mysteries series.

							A teenage girl with a history of running away has dropped out of sight again. The locals and the law both think Tara Wylie is up to her old tricks - until her mother receives a terrifying text message. Equally disturbing: Henry Gemerle - a kidnapper and rapist who once held three girls prisoner for fifteen years - has escaped, and may be lurking in Bearkill. Lizzie Snow teams up with her boss Sheriff Cody Chevrier to search for the missing girl and the wily fugitive. Following a trail of grisly clues - a bloodstained motel room, a makeshift coffin in a shallow grave - Lizzie is drawn ever closer to the flames in her race to save an innocent and corner a monster.

“[A] tense and fast-paced tale of love gone horribly and fantastically wrong.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Graves’s dark second Lizzie Snow mystery examines the ugly, soul-destroying things that mark the aftermath of a child abduction.” - Publishers Weekly

“Insightful and twisted . . . an action-packed psychological thriller that readers cannot put down . . . This haunting novel is a must-read.” - RT Book Reviews

“[Sarah] Graves writes at full strength when she’s focused on this economically depressed region, once the hub of a thriving lumber industry but now mostly the domain of meth cooks, unhappy teenagers and scores of volunteer firefighters battling tenacious blazes in the surrounding forest. . . . [A] rugged landscape with its down-to-earth characters.” - The New York Times

“Well-observed and craftily orchestrated, The Girls She Left Behind is a solid entry in what is shaping up to be a strong Maine mystery series. Readers are likely to warm to Lizzie Snow and eagerly await her next appearance.” - Portland Press-Herald

“An engrossing and rapid read . . . Graves is clearly an expert mystery writer and the plot contains plenty of unexpected tangles and complexities to keep fans of the genre well-entertained.” - Pop Mythology

“Immersing her listeners in rural Bearkill, Maine, narrator Potter does a bang-up job with the second Lizzie Snow mystery from noted cozy-author Graves. Potter has won multiple awards for her narrations, and it’s easy to see why. So skillfully does she build tension within her characters that we don’t realize that one of them has grown teeth and morphed into our villain until the gripping finish. Both fans and new readers will hope Potter returns for the next installment in this increasingly complex and satisfying series.” - Booklist (audio review)
