LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON ~ Hallie Thomas vanishes without a trace, and the authorities are baffled. Is she a runaway or has she been kidnapped? No ransom has been demanded, leading them to believe she is a victim of human trafficking or has been abducted by a killer. But there's an added sense of urgency to find her. Hallie has xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Anything that emits UV light, including the sun and some lightbulbs, is deadly to her. Hundreds of miles away in a remote area of the Apalachicola National Forest, a dead body lies rotting by a creek and an abandoned vehicle is hidden among the trees miles away with a Hallie's shoes in the back seat, but where is Hallie Thomas? The only way she can survive and hope to get back to civilization is at night, by the LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON.
