Pete Decker finds that the world of affluent Los Angeles teenagers can be brutally dangerous as he investigates his eighth mystery in the series
Faye Kellerman has four children and lives with them and her husband, Jonathan Kellerman, in Los Angeles.
Continuing her series featuring LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina, Kellerman's latest concerns the prom-night murder of a high-school girl. (Aug.)
Terry, a bright but troubled teenager, is hired as a tutor by Chris Whitman, a handsome, wealthy, and popular boy in her school. When Chris's date is brutally murdered on prom night, he confesses to the murder. Terry successfully pleads with investigator Peter Decker to reopen the case because neither believes that Chris is guilty. Mitchell Greenberg reads well and captures the characters' various voices and emotions, employing a pace that maintains the excitement. VERDICT Although the print version debuted in 1995, this is recommended for Kellerman fans and mystery/thriller lovers.-Ilka Gordon, Aaron Garber Lib., Cleveland (c) Copyright 2012.
