Genre: mystery, law, police, suspense, thriller, series

Rating: ★★★★1/2

In the latest Rachel Knight novel, Rachel and Detective Bailey Keller are headed to a local high school where there has been a Columbine-style shooting complete with the killers taking their own lives. As Special Trials Prosecutor, Rachel and Bailey go through evidence and witnesses they soon realize that the facts do not add up and the killers may not be among the dead. Not knowing the killers’ agenda Rachel and Bailey have to act quickly before the body count gets to be any higher.

Each time I pick up a Rachel Knight full-length novel I think it is great and worry the next one will be a let down by not being as suspenseful and absorbing. And each time Marcia Clark knocks me on my butt because it always gets better and I cannot stop reading till the novel ends.

This book had twists and turns I did not always see coming and was so heartbreaking at times. There was less of the courtroom drama in this one, just FYI, but still fits within the series.

***I received an eARC from NETGALLEY***
