This was excellent!! I read it in a little more than a day and totally enjoyed it.
Great like all her books, once I started it I couldn't put it down. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors
Very good! Very suspenseful...keeps you guessing!
Three black churches have been burnt in the past months when the police faces the problem of not finding any kind of evidence pointing to the possible arsonist. The briefly involved FBI profiles the subject to be highly intelligent, young, white and male. Worse of what already happened the profile predicts the torchings to be a thrill-crime soon to become a bore to the subject who's soon going to take the next step to thrill himself.
The police, with Detective Jace Nolan as the lead investigator, now concentrates on the Randolph-Lowen High School and it's class of gifted students, taught by Lindsey Sloan.
After threats to her own life, an attempt to kill her in a ticket booth and the suicide of two teenagers Lindsey soon has to change her mind from defending her pupils as victims of police absurdity soon has to the possibility the detectives accusations might be possible.
I've read a lot of opinions comparing this book to school massacres that happened in the past but I honestly have to admit this thought is a bit far fetched.
The plot is fine and keeps you reading and enjoying the suspense.
I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one sitting - it was that good.
good quick read, typical story but will keep your interest
this book of Gayle's was a bit slow getting started...but when it picked up...it was as great as usual...some extra bits of fluff in this one...kept me guessing as to the culprit...by the end of the story...I was still wrong...love her books!
Lindsay Sloan teaches the best and brightest students at Randolph-Lowen High School - exceptional teens with promising futures far from their small Alabama hometown. So when brash detective Jace Nolan arrives from up north and accuses her kids of setting a series of fires in local black churches, Lindsay is furious. No matter how Jace tries to convince her, Lindsay can't believe her pupils could do something so horrible, let alone be addicted to the rush of getting away with it. But when her attraction to Jace places her in mortal danger and people begin dying, Lindsay can no longer be sure just what her students are capable of.
If Jace is right, it's up to the two of them to outsmart these criminal minds . . . before they carry out the ultimate thrill kill.
Got this book at a used bookstore so, I don't know if it's been around smokers, etc. Good book. Kept me guesssing. I'm trying to find everything she has wrote.
