… a fun and fast-paced thriller …

Maxine “Max” Revere, investigative reporter turned TV crime show host, returns to her hometown for the funeral of an old school classmate, Kevin O’Neal, who apparently committed suicide. Another of Max’s classmates, Lindy Ames, had been murdered years earlier while they attended Atherton Prep in California. Kevin, though never arrested or tried, was the only suspect and was deemed guilty by public opinion. Thus the motive for his taking his own life. Or did he? Max believes not. That his death was at the hand of another. But how can she prove it? And what about Lindy’s murder some 13 years earlier? Is it in anyway connected to Kevin’s “suicide?” Add to this the untimely death of a young construction worker at Atherton and Max’s radar is on full alert. She launches into solving all three deaths and runs against obstacle after obstacle, some of which threaten her own life. This is a fun, fast-paced thriller that will keep up late. Max is a character you will definitely want to hang with again and again. Hopefully more Max books are coming.
