He'd been drawn here by the grass and the bees and the strange sensation that this was a magical place, that the bones of the world were a little looser here, double- jointed, twisting back on themselves, leaving spaces one could slip into and hide.....Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps - gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza goes missing, the people of Bone Gap arent surprised. After all, it isn't the first time someones slipped away and left Finn and Sean O'Sullivan on their own. Finn knows thats not what happened with Roza. He knows she was taken, ripped from the cornfields by a man whose face he cant remember. But no one believes him anymore. Well, almost no one. Petey Willis, the beekeepers daughter, suspects that lurking behind Finns fearful shyness is a story worth uncovering. But as we, like Petey, follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap - their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their uncertain futures - the truth about what happened to Roza is slowly revealed. And it is stranger than you can possibly imagine.
