Her head throbbed as she stumbles up the stairs. Music vibrating and the sound of partygoers fill her head as she walks into one of the dark, empty rooms. As she sits on the bed, she hears the unmistakable sound of the door locking behind her. She is not alone.
The body of college student Chrissie Lowe lies curled into a ball - long red cuts along her arms suggesting how she had met her death. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate.
Purplish bruising on Chrissie's upper arms make Jenna believe there is more to Chrissie's death than others suspected, and she soon finds herself following the trail of the student's last few moments, leading her to the scene of a party that had ended just hours before Chrissie's body was found.
When Jenna hears reports that Chrissie was seen going into the bedroom of a college football star, she knows that finding out what went on behind that closed door could be the key to finding out how Chrissie ended up dead. But then another partygoer dies in an apparent accident at the campus gym just hours later, and Jenna is convinced the deaths are connected.
Facing a wall of silence from the student population, Jenna has to act fast to find the killer, but soon another student is found dead on the campus. As Jenna sends in one of her deputies undercovers, she prays that she hasn't just sealed his fate. Can she find the killer before any more lives are taken?
|This story keeps you going from the beginning to the very end. When Jenna and David return from vacation they are thrown into crime almost immediately. Jenna the sheriff becomes more frustrated with the case as she begins to find out about serial rapists happening at the college and the quarterback who is the ringleader and because of his cockiness it is difficult to pin the crimes on him. As that is going on some of the football players who were also involved are now happening to die or be killed it is difficult for the coroner to determine the cause of death, accident or murder. All of this keeps the story moving along and there are really no slow parts, if you think there are it is only describing a crime scene or at the office. Overall, I really enjoyed the book the characters and really would have wished to have found this author earlier to have read the books before this one. Will keep you turning the pages until the very end. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
