Mystery Woman Sleuth
The three girls have been inseparable best friends since the
third grade -- Josie, the athletic one; Perri, the
brilliant, acerbic drama queen; and Kat, the beauty, who
also has brains, grace, and a heart open to all around her.
But their last day of high school becomes their final day
together after one of them brings a gun to school to resolve
a mysterious feud. When the police arrive, they discover two
wounded girls, one so critically that she is not expected to
recover. The third girl is dead, killed instantly by a shot
to the heart.
What transpired that morning at Glendale High rocks the
foundation of an affluent community in Baltimore's distant
suburbs, a place that has barely recovered from an earlier,
more comprehensible tragedy. For the shell-shocked parents,
teachers, administrators, and students, healing must begin
with answers to the usual questions -- but only if the
answers are safe ones, answers that will lead back to one
girl and one family and absolve everyone else.
For Homicide Sgt. Harold Lenhardt, this case is a mystery
with more twists than these grief-stricken suburbanites are
willing to acknowledge -- and the sole lucid survivor, a
girl with a teenager's uncanny knack for stonewalling,
strikes him as being less than honest. What is she
concealing? Is she trying to protect herself or someone
else? Even the simplest secrets can kill -- and kill again
if no one is willing to confront them.
