Turns into a journey of self discovery and a journey into the darkness of their own hometown On the twilit streets of Harting Farms everyone is a suspect And any of the boys might be the Piper’s next victi. This book is simply brilliant It's the kind of book that you don't want to end yet don't want to put down either I honestly became so emotionally invested with these characters that I sobbed at the end Oh and the end There is a twist One I NEVER saw coming This is only the second book I've read by this author and he has uickly become one of my favorites Check out his work I assure you he is as talented a writer as they come You will not be disappointed

December ParkSpapers call him the Piper because he has come to take the children away But there are darker names for him too Vowing to stop the Piper’s reign of terror five boys take up the search Their teenage pledge. If Stephen King's It The Body Stand By Me and The Hardy Boys had an orgy this book would be the wet spotThis 500 page book could have easily been 200 pages less although I suspect I still would have been bored SynopsisA group of five obnoxious high school boys ride around on their bikes smoking cigarettes and drinking Jolt while trying to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of several teens in their small town Nothing ever really happens Allow me to rephrase that nothing EVER happensThe boys come across clues that ultimately are never explained why where what did they had to do with anything I felt like the story never went anywhere no progression whatsoever until the final 10% And then the mystery is solved and I'm like wtf Where did that come from The explanation for the end result was so out of left field it was asinine This one was definitely not my cup of Jolt
