The carnival has come to town. An aroma of sweet cotton candy, along with other favorites, circulate on a warm summer breeze inside the fairgrounds. Laughter and screaming from the rides can be heard for a country mile, in any direction. It’s getting late, and Hannah Darby’s best friend Lori Tolliver, hasn’t exited the fun house, or answered any of Hannah’s texts. Hours later, an extensive law enforcement search including scent dogs can’t find a trace of her. The clock is Willow Darby’s worst enemy at the moment, and it’s ticking mercilessly against her. Lori Tolliver is missing.
