Runner-up Novelist Grant Award, San Diego Book Awards 2002
Nobody ever leaves the isolated town of Los Trampas, New Mexico. Does everyone stay because they are victims of an ancient curse or because the fear of leaving has been passed through generations?
"The Trap is a well-told original story with delicately constructed characters, bound to captivate the reader from the first page through to the unexpected, satisfying conclusion."
"Candace Toft... a modern mystery writer of the rarest kind. She keeps you turning the pages as fast as you can, wondering what's going to happen next. But as a reader, you're torn, because the graceful, literate prose is something you also want to take the time to savor."Available from Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com or PublishAmerica.com
