The Girl on the Bus is a novel with a dark myster at its core. It asks you to consider just how far you would be prepared to go to discover what happened to a missing friend.
Vicki Reiner invited a former college friend to travel from her home in dusty Barstow to spend a few restful weeks in her beachside home on the Californian coast. Laurie agrees, and soon sends a text message confirming that she has booked an on-line bus ticket, yet she never arrives at her destination.
Vicki instinctively knows that something sinister has happened to her friend, but the Oceanside police dismiss her concerns as ridiculous. Even the retired detective she turns to for advice is unconvinced...until more people start to vanish.
