I have to start out by saying I received this book as Goodreads First-reads winner.

I was pretty excited when I found out I was getting to read and review this book. This is the 3rd book I have read by Tana French and I think it's my favorite so far! It was one of those books that I didn't want to put down but also didn't want to end.

The crime in this story is the murder of Chris Harper, a popular teenage boy attending Colm's boys school. The author alternates the chapters expertly between the present day investigation of the year old murder by 2 detectives and the activities leading up to the murder as seen thru the eyes of 4 best friends at the neighboring girls' school. Each chapter pulls you in and leaves you wanting to know what happens next.

If I had to say anything negative about the story it would be that I don't even think the story needed the "light" thing (don't want to give anything away) but this book is a keeper and I will definitely recommend it!!
