Award winning author DAVID BELL will introduce his latest thriller, BRING HER HOME. Just a year and a half after the tragic death of his wife, Bill Price’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Summer, and her best friend, Haley, disappear. Days later, the girls are found in a city park. Haley is dead at the scene, while Summer is left beaten beyond recognition and clinging to life. Bill holds vigil over Summer’s bandaged body and he wants answers NOW.

But when troubling new questions about Summer’s life surface, he is not prepared for the aftershocks. He’ll soon discover that everyone, including the dead, has secrets, and that searching for the truth will tear open old wounds that pierce straight to the heart of his family.
