As she and Daniel search out clues, first focusing on the renter, then other community members, they creep ever closer to horrors of the too-close-to-home variety. McHugh cleverly tells the story in several first-person voices, mostly that of Lucy and her mother.

But as in real life but oh-so-rarely in fiction, the villain here may not be percent villainous, nor are the good guys necessarily percent blame-free. The town of Henbane sits deep in the Ozark Mountains. Now on the brink of adulthood, Lucy experiences another loss when her friend Cheri disappears and is then found murdered, her body placed on display for all to see.
What Lucy discovers is a secret that pervades the secluded Missouri hills, and beyond that horrific revelation is a more personal one concerning what happened to her mother more than a decade earlier. The Weight of Blood is an urgent look at the dark side of a bucolic landscape beyond the arm of the law, where a person can easily disappear without a trace.
