chilling, additive book is in my opinion is one of Christopher Pike's best books. It takes you from character to character in suspects to the murder.

He might have photographed a murder.

Herb just wanted to photograph the cheerleaders in the school showers. He planted his camera high in the corner where no one could see it, and rigged it to a special homemade timer. He did this Thursday night, and he hoped by Friday night to have an exciting roll of film to develop.

But a girl dies Friday afternoon. On the surface it appears to be nothing more than a tragic car accident. But when Herb finally does collect his roll of film, he develops a picture showing a shadowy figure sneaking up on the girl who dies--- sneaking up on her with a baseball bat.

It makes Herb wonder if the girl was dead long before the car accident.

But unfortunately for Herb, he doesnt wonder if the murderer knows he took the picture.
