Plot or Premise
What I Liked
As with previous cold cases, the story bops back and forth between the past and the present. Unlike the previous books, the jumps back don’t seem as jarring, and the “kids” in the past seem realistic. Angst, jealousy, bravado, all of it.
What I Didn’t Like
The story drags a bit in the present getting to the end, and the premise of all the kids in the present still being in contact together is really far-fetched. The explanation of what exactly happened in the past for the murdered girl was great right up until the murder. And the epilogue is extremely unsatisfying.
The Bottom Line
A good last book, not an awesome one.
