Update: SYNC 2016 has ended. SYNC will return in May 2017!
Our final week of this year’s SYNC Audiobook program is here. Thanks for participating in SYNC all summer long! We hope you’ve enjoyed the pairings.
Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years ago, their mother hightailed it to Oregon for a brand-new guy, a brand-new life. Finn knows what really happened to Roza. He knows she was kidnapped by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turn up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.
