In 1975, a pair of sisters aged 10 and 12 disappeared from a shopping mall in suburban Washington, D.C. What followed was a grief-stricken, frantic investigation that ultimately proved fruitless, and the case of the missing girls went as cold as ice. Then, nearly 40 years later, cold case detectives found a piece of evidence that the original investigators had missed—evidence that led them to a sinister Appalachian clan, and a compulsive liar serving time for child molestation.
In his early days as a reporter in Baltimore, soon-to-be celebrated author Mark Bowden covered the initial disappearance and subsequent investigation in 1975. Now, over 40 years later, he returns to cover the cold case's ultimate conclusion, as the last stone is finally overturned.
