Emma Duffy-Comparone, "The Devil's Triangle"

Claire, one of a set of twenty-nine year old triplets, disappeared or was abducted on a camping trip. It's been a year and we see how not knowing what happened to their sister has affected the other two sisters as well as the parents. It's a heart wrenching story but never descends into maudlin details about the disappearance. There's only a few details inserted as backstory every once in a while throughout the fourteen pages that give clues about Claire's disappearance.

"The Devil's Triangle" was first published in New England Review  and then included in the 2017 edition of Pushcart Prize XLI: Best of the Small Presses.
