it was amazing
bookshelves: contemporary-fiction, suspense

Loved this. Very mesmerizing. A group of undergrad Greek students get involved in a murder and cover up. Full of classical allusions. The author also alludes at one point to Peter Pan, I think trying to parallel the characters to that of the Lost Boys. Out on their own without parental/authority supervision. But to me it seemed more Lord of the Flies meets small Liberal Arts school.
