Initial thoughts:

THAT is not your usual mystery.
THAT is hardly a mystery at all! IMO.

You will think you know where this book is going but just when it looks like that idea you started with will pay off, the book takes a wicked sharp right turn. What I was most impressed with is the author's depiction of voice--I've heard these characters before in hotel elevators or at the next table over in a restaurant (and so have you). Chillingly plausible. Recommended.

Well written and character-driven. It takes skill to make a reader fall in love with narcissists and sociopaths, and Fields has that skill. I wish she could give the same treatment to every murderer that gets stuck in the pop culture psyche.

We are told that these two young men are the geniuses of their peer groups—One popular, the other not so. They want to up their boredom by killing someone. Sound familiar? Ending really lame.
