The ScampBook - 2015
Rayelle Reed can't escape in her small town, where everyone knows everything and not enough: all the guys she slept with, but not the ones she loved. The baby she had out of wedlock with the pastor's son, and how the baby died, but not the grief and guilt that consume her. At a motel bar, Rayelle meets Couper Gale, a freelance reporter on a mission to investigate a rash of missing girls, and she tags along as an excuse to cross the state line. But when Couper's investigation leads them to the mystery surrounding Rayelle's runaway cousin Khaki, she finds she is heading straight back into everything she was hoping to leave behind. As fates become entwined, Rayelle must follow a haunted and twisted path--leading her toward a collision where loyalties will be betrayed, memories uncovered, and family bonds shattered. Mysterious, chilling, and told at a breakneck pace, The Scamp is a thrilling debut novel.
