really liked it

When privileged rich girl Julia Whitmore is found dead in her Manhattan bathtub, NYPD detective Ellie Hatcher chalks it up to suicide despite the insistence of Julia's mother that it's murder. But the Whitmores have connections and Ellie is forced to investigate Julia's death as a murder. Ellie learns that everything is not black and white as she delves into Julia's family and prep school friends.

Author Alafair Burke gives readers a closer look at the pressure to excel that is placed upon students today. She exposes a story of abuse from the past that is stirred up in the present with disastrous results. Burke's Ellie Hatcher is stretched in ways she has never imagined.

"Never Tell" is a suspenseful novel that takes readers down unexpected paths. Fans of Ellie Hatcher definitely will want to read "Never Tell." Although this is the fourth book in the Ellie Hatcher series, readers will be able to jump right in without any trouble. I highly recommend "Never Tell."
