Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes award-winning author Lori Roy to the studio to discuss her book THE DISAPPEARING. About the guest: Lori Roy was born and raised in the Midwest where she attended and graduated from Kansas State University. She is the author of the Edgar Award-Winning BENT ROAD. Her most recent novel, LET ME DIE IN HIS FOOTSTEPS, received the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Novel of 2015, making Lori the first woman to win Best First and Best Novel and the third person to do so. Shw lives in Florida with her family. About the book: When Lane Fielding fled her isolated Florida hometown after high school for the anonymity of New York City, she swore she'd never return. But twenty years later, newly divorced and with two daughters in tow, she finds herself tending bar at the local dive and living with her parents on the historic Fielding Plantation. Here, the past haunts her and the sinister crimes of her father--the former director of an infamous boys' school--make her as unwelcome in town as she was the day she left. Ostracized by the people she was taught to trust, Lane's unsteady truce with the town is rattled when her older daughter suddenly vanishes. Ten days earlier, a college student went missing, and the two disappearances at first ignite fears that a serial killer who once preyed upon the town has returned. But when Lane's younger daughter admits to having made a new and unseemly friend, a desperate Lane attacks her hometown's façade to discover whether her daughter's disappearance is payback for her father's crimes--or for her own.
