Call #: BAU

Steven Lamb is convinced that finding the remains of his Uncle Billy, who was murdered 19 years ago when he was 11 years old, will fix his family.  His grandmother’s broken heart will be mended and his mother will be happy again.  Pedophile Steven Avery has been linked to Billy’s disappearance and Steven writes to him in jail in hopes of finding Billy’s buried remains; setting off a chain of psychologically terrifying events.  The ominous tone is further fueled by the bleak landscape and Bauer’s sparse, precise prose.  The Crime Writer’s Association awarded it the 2010 Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel.
