Parnassus Books welcomes David Bell as he reads from and signs Since She Went Away, an electrifying new thriller from David Bell--the bestselling author of Somebody I Used to Know and The Forgotten Girl.
Three months earlier, Jenna Springer was supposed to meet her lifelong best-friend Celia. But when Jenna arrived late she found that Celia had disappeared--and hasn't been seen since. Jenna has blamed herself for her friend's disappearance every single day since then. The only piece of evidence is a lone diamond earring found where Celia and Jenna were planning to meet. And even though Jenna has obsessively surfed message boards devoted to missing persons cases, she is no closer to finding any answers--or easing her guilt.
But when her son's new girlfriend disappears, a stricken Jenna begins to unwind the tangled truth behind Celia's tragedy. And as long-buried secrets finally come to light, she discovers how a few simple lies can completely shatter lives.
