The Regulator welcomes Durham author Grant Hetherton for a reading and book signing of his newest mystery, Last Girl Gone.
Investigative journalist Laura Chambers is back in her tiny hometown of Hillsborough, the one place she swore never to return. Fired from the Boston Globe, her career in shambles, she reluctantly takes a job with the local paper. The work is simple, unimportant, and worst of all, boring―at least until a missing girl turns up dead. Years earlier, ten-year-old Patty Finch left home and never made it back. Now that terror has returned to seize another girl. And another. And another. Powerful, intricate, and tense, Last Girl Gone will have you looking over your shoulder long after the last page.
“Forget sleep. Forget everything. No one will pry this book out of your hands until the last diabolical twist.” ―Brian Freeman, bestselling author of The Night Bird
J. G. Hetherton was raised in rural Wisconsin, graduated from Northwestern, and lived in Chicago for the better part of a decade. Along the way to his first novel, he dabbled in many different day jobs before moving to North Carolina for a girl. They live in Durham with their twin daughters, and when he’s not writing, you can find J.G. hiking on the Eno or sitting down with a good book.
