Book Summary

Eyewitness to two killings, fourteen-year-old Gabriel James relates the shocking story behind the murders in a police interrogation interspersed with flashbacks. Step by step, this Montana teenager traces his discovery of a link between a troubled classmate's disturbing home life and an outbreak of local crime. In the process, however, Gabriel becomes increasingly confused about his own culpability for the explosive events that have unfolded.

Reviews

Media Reviews

"Overall, the murder mystery might intrigue some teens but most will probably quit reading before getting too involved in this book." - School Library Journal

"Patience from readers won't be required, though, as plenty of action keeps the narrative moving while the plot details unfold. The result is not only suspense but a memorable and believable characterization. Top notch." - Kirkus

"As with the finest interrogation dramas, like the movie The Usual Suspects, the final reveal is both satisfying and surprising, but it's the well-structured and paced buildup that's most worth relishing." - Booklist

"Price's taut thriller takes place during the police questioning of high school sophomore Gabe, who has witnessed a murder he might be partly responsible for... Tension builds effectively, and the final revelations, including those that involve Gabe's own family, do not disappoint. The fast pace, dark mood, and well-plotted story line should have readers hooked." - Publishers Weekly
