This suspense mystery/legal thriller is the third novel in the Assistant District Attorney Jesse Black Legal Thriller series. Deadly Evidence is about the murder with a rifle of all members of a 15 girl high school cheerleader squad and their coach by a teen boy. Even though the boy also died, prosecutor Jesse Black is unwilling to drop the case because she believes that there are persons who enticed the boy to commit the murders. Like the earlier novels in the series there is little courtroom action. Xe Sands narrates this fast paced and action filled novel very well.

This book starts out with a teenage boy shooting 16 cheerleaders and their coach and waiting for the police to arrive. When they do the boy is disappointed that there are only two plain clothes officers and the lead is a woman. He wants to commit suicide by cop but looses his nerve when the scenario doesn't go according to the plan. Turns out, he's not the only one making plans. There's a website geared towards misogynists and someone on that site was spurring the boy on to do something about his anger, like taking a firearm to the school.
When the arresting officers find out that one of the girls was sleeping with a teacher the investigation takes a turn. The rest of the book deals with looking for the mystery man and the teacher. The are many suspects and each has to be eliminated until the shocking conclusion when the perpetrator is finally revealed.
Excellent addition to the series. Xe Sands does a great job narrating.
