The Woods by Harlan Coben

Camille Copeland sneaked into the woods at summer camp with three friends. Two were later discovered dead. Camille and the other friend were never found. Now twenty years later, Paul Copeland, her brother, is questioned by the police as part of another murder investigation. Paul realizes that the dead man might be Camille's friend from that night. Does that mean that she was alive all these years and, if so, where has she been? Paul's past is dredged up, especially his guilt for the fact that he was supposed to be on night watch duty at the camp but was romancing his girlfriend instead. Paul realizes that he must find out the truth about what happened. Harlan Coben's latest book is a page turner but is not as suspenseful as his other recent novels. Even so, Coben fans will enjoy it.
