Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A young boy's disappearance from the sleepy southern hamlet of Niceville sets off a series of events that will ultimately expose the dark secret festering below the town's pleasant exterior. One fine spring day in Niceville, a leafy village in the Deep South, a young boy named Rainey Teague disappears on his way home from school. What makes this event even more disturbing is that he seems to have literally disappeared - security camera footage captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. The search for the boy is led by ex-Special Forces veteran Nick Kavanaugh, now a detective with the local police and no stranger to lowlifes and their criminal hijinks. In the nightmare time that follows Rainey's disappearance, Nick and his wife, Kate, a family practice lawyer, find themselves drawn into a shadow-world between life and death where they ultimately make the discovery that what lies beneath Niceville is a malevolent power, darker and older than the ancient mountain forest surrounding its source: a 1000-foot-deep pit known as Crater Sink.

Something's wrong in Niceville, where evil lives far longer than men do in a shadow world of disappearances, mysterious robberies, and disastrous events that ricochet across 20 different lives.
A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours. Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates. Soon he and his wife, Kate, a distinguished lawyer from an old Niceville family, find themselves struggling to make sense not only of the disappearance and the robbery but also of a shadow world, where time has a different rhythm and where justice is elusive. Compulsively readable, and populated with characters who leap off the page, Niceville will draw you in, excite you, amaze you, horrify you, and, when it finally lets you go, make you sorry you have to leave.
