Product Description

Review

Reads like a collaboration between Michael Connelly and the gothic fiction of Joyce Carol Oates . . . A winner on every level (Will Lavender)

Cemetery Girl grabbed me by the throat on page one and never let up. . . the work of a master (John Lescroart)

David Bell writes spellbinding and gripping thrillers that get under your skin and refuse to let go. (Linwood Barclay)

David Bell is a natural storyteller and a superb writer (Nelson DeMille)

Product Description

In Cemetery Girl, David Bell's gripping psychological thriller, a father tries to uncover the secrets of his daughter's inexplicable disappearance.


Tom and Abby Stuart had everything: a perfect marriage, successful careers, and a beautiful twelve-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Then one day Caitlin vanished. The tragedy changed their lives and shattered their marriage.


Four years later, Caitlin is found alive - dirty and dishevelled yet preternaturally calm. The police arrest a suspect, but Caitlin refuses to testify, leaving the Stuarts with a choice: let the man who may be responsible for destroying their lives walk away, or take matters into their own hands.


When Tom decides to try to uncover the truth for himself, nothing can prepare him for what he discovers . . .


David Bell's Cemetery Girl will have readers biting their nails, and will accompany his new novel The Hiding Place. A real treat for all fans of Kate Atkinson, Dennis Lehane and Heather Gudenkauf.


Praise for David Bell:

'Reads like a collaboration between Michael Connelly and the gothic fiction of Joyce Carol Oates . . . A winner on every level.' Will Lavender


'A haunting meditation on the ties that bind parent to child, husband to wife, brother to brother. An absolutely riveting, absorbing read not to be missed.' Lisa Unger


David Bell is an assistant professor of English at Western Kentucky University. He received an M.A. in creative writing from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and a Ph.D. in American Literature and creative writing from the University of Cincinnati. Cemetery Girl was David Bell's first novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Gripping Page Turner 17 Oct. 2011
Format:Paperback
This is one of the best thrillers I've read in a long time. It is an utterly convincing story about a father's journey to find the truth about his daughter's abduction. I found the protagonist very sympathetic and believeable. There are plenty of twists and turns in the narrative and you never quite know what to expect. It is written in the style of a gritty detective novel and I found it easy to follow. What I loved most of all was how realistic the father's reactions were. The author really has a grip on how a man relates differently to a tragedy and I found this utterly compelling. Highly recommended. A**

3.0 out of 5 stars Unanswered questions 25 Jan. 2013
By nicola
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Started really well and at a good pace but two thirds of the way thro it started me thinking that while we were obviously going to find out the kidnappers identity were we ever going to really find out what was supposed to have happened to Caitlin during her time in captivity. Seriously disappointing ending, built up to a climax and fizzled out leaving many unanswered questions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book 27 Jan. 2013
By DebbieB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story which was told from the point of view of the father of a girl who has disappeared and is presumed dead. Caitlin has been missing for four years and her parents' relationship has suffered. Her mother is organizing a memorial service but her father cannot accept that he should move on. Perhaps he is right as strange events begin to suggest that something other than death may have overtaken Caitlin.
This was a good read and I have ordered David Bell's next book The Hiding Place which is due out soon.

A bit of a different plotline makes this novel stand out. I found the characters interesting and could empathise with them easily due to the excellent writing style.
