Description-

  • A hiking trip turns into a missing persons search in this suspense novel "guaranteed to hold any reader" from the New York Times–bestselling author (The New York Times Book Review).

    When high school buddies Larry Drayfus and Dan Cotwell take a backpacking trip into the Mogollon Mountains, nobody is concerned when they don't come home exactly on time. Dan is a natural outdoorsman, and he knows the mountains well. Larry is smart and resourceful. But soon the boys' families must accept the unthinkable, as little sign of them can be found in the hills. For Larry's sister—and Dan's girlfriend—Joan, grief soon turns to mystery when some of her brother's old acquaintances start calling with strange and threatening messages.

    In They Never Came Home, the truth of Larry and Dan's disappearance is far more shocking than any of their loved ones can anticipate.

    This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lois Duncan including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
