Publisher's Summary

The three girls have been inseparable best friends since third grade: Josie, the athletic one; Perri, the brilliant, acerbic drama queen; and Kat, the beauty, who also had brains, grace, and a heart open to all around her. But their last day of high school becomes their final day together after one of them brings a gun to school to resolve a mysterious feud. When the police arrive, they discover two wounded girls. The third girl is dead, killed instantly by a shot to the heart.For the shell-shocked parents, teachers, administrators, and students, healing must begin with answers to the usual questions, but only if the answers are safe ones, answers that will lead back to one girl and one family and absolve everyone else.For Homicide Sgt. Harold Lenhardt, this case is a mystery with more twists than these grief-stricken suburbanites are willing to acknowledge, and the sole lucid survivor, a girl with a teenager's uncanny knack for stonewalling, strikes him as being less than honest. What is she concealing? Is she trying to protect herself or someone else? Even the simplest secrets can kill...and kill again if no one is willing to confront them.

Not my cup of tea..

I gave high praise to Laura Lippman's other audible offering "By a Spider's Thread". And when I saw the same excellent narrator had done this one too I had high hopes. While the narration is excellent the story just wasn't for me.
This is a chick novel bluntly said. I should have paid more attention to the story line before I bought the book. It's about three teenage girls and...well, maybe that says enough. If the story line looks interesting to you then you'll probably really enjoy this book. It's well done.

Such a good one!

I love Laura Lippman, but this book stood out especially for its characters and plotting. Cameo appearances from some of her Baltimore regulars.
