Behind the high and imposing gates of a prestigious college, five students have taken their lives. All of them friends, all of them good kids, all of them dead within months of each other. When FBI Agent Jess Bishop is called in to investigate, what she discovers will make her just as vulnerable as the students she’s trying to protect.
As Jess begins to unravel the secrets behind the deaths, she uncovers something much more sinister at the school and she is determined to find out who is at the centre of it.
Though her team think they’re closing in on the ringleader, Jess becomes convinced they’re going after the wrong person, forcing her to investigate on her own. Desperate to stop any more deaths, she risks everything by putting herself in the firing line. But just how far would she go to save the lives of those around her?
Call me strange but I like police officers with a certain background. They make a much more interesting character and I loved Jess straight from the start.
I totally understood the mixed emotions she felt and it made her very human. She is fierce and follows her heart. She wants the best for everyone, but seems to forget about herself.
Yesterday evening I had to read the last 20% and I often read late at night, but this one felt so creepy that I kept hearing things outside. Of course pure imagination due to the suspense, but it made the story even more real.
I absolutely loved this book and I always had the feeling that strange things happen in those rich boys schools. They really are the perfect setting for it and people with money means people with high level jobs who know how to hide what they want to keep hidden.
The only thing that disappointed me a bit was the ending. I felt it was a bit rushed and would have loved to have a more detailed explanation. I still have some questions running around in my mind, but maybe some will be answered in the next part.
This was my first book by this author and I regret that I did not read the previous parts, but from now on I will keep my eye on the ball euh book. 😉 5 stars
