“All the Little Liars” is a new mystery by Charlaine Harris. Four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora Teagarden’s brother, Philip, was one of them. There was an even worse discovery – a dead body at the kids’ last known destination. While the local police and Sheriff’s department comb the country for the missing kids, Aurora and her new husband, true-crime writer Robin Crusoe begin their own investigation. As days go by the most important questions remain: Are the kids alive? Where could they be?
