A Columbine-style massacre at a high school in the San Fernando Valley has left a community shaken to its core. Two students are identified as the killers. Both are dead, believed to have committed a mutual suicide. But in the aftermath of the shooting, as LA Special Trials prosecutor Rachel Knight and Detective Bailey Keller dig deeper, they realize that the pieces don't add up. Could it be that the two "killers" were themselves victims? And if so, does that mean that the real killers are still on the loose? When someone starts dropping clues that another horrific crime is in the works, Rachel and Bailey scramble desperately to profile their suspect and prevent another killing--before it's too late.

First of her books I've read also & excellent. Was somewhat skeptical due to her lawyer background & thought just another courtroom drama. Proved me wrong. Love the banter, humor with the characters. Did not disappoint this avid reader of mysteries.

Not as good as her first book , but since I like her main characters, it wasn't a bad read.

This book kept me hooked from start to finish. I had a hard time putting it down. I like Marcia Clark's books and this is exceptional too. Very good read.

She has done it again with another great read!! I've read all her books to date and they never disappoint. I cannot wait for her next thriller!!

Another great novel in the Rachel Knight series. This one kind of made me sick to my stomach at the beginning because of the 'ripped from the headlines' storyline, but very well written and I love the characters.
