Publisher's Summary

Using a premise pulled from the headlines - the very real vulnerability of students and teachers - the best-selling author of the Mary Russell mysteries delivers a contemporary novel of psychological suspense. The various presenters at a local school career day prepare for a day in class, not knowing that someone with a thirst for revenge is in their midst.

Masterfully Written

This is a stand-alone book by Laurie R. King. The story is about students, a school principal and her husband, the school police officer and janitor and what leads up to the school shooting and school lockdown. I thought it was great to have San Francisco police detective Martinelli play a brief part in the story. I am a fan of King’s Martinelli series.

The book is well written. The chapters are short and succinct. The tension builds as secrets about various characters are gradually revealed. Each chapter is narrated in a different voice. King has the reader trying to determine who is going to be the shooter. The plot is well crafted and the characters are engaging. Gradually the plot leads the reader to believe one student is going to be the perpetrator, but then suddenly in seconds everything changes. The ending was a big surprise. This is a great psychological suspense story by a master storyteller.

The book was almost eleven hours long. Pilar Witherspoon does an excellent job narrating the story. The way she pronounces the Spanish names, I think she might be a native Spanish speaker. Witherspoon is an actress and audiobook narrator.

Excellent

I loved this book. It is tight, fast, different. The beginning seemed slow so be prepared to dawdle. Its reader is better than I've heard for while. It is just excellent.

Excellent story well told

It took me a short while to get into the rhythm of the book but once I got I could barely leave it.
The narrator was very good indeed (other than an appalling attempt at an Australian accent).
I've enjoyed every one of Ms Kings varied books so far and although I would say this is the best it's certainly up there
