Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren't looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents' deaths. Now, while she's working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend's homicide, she's driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.
One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy's own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn't listening to her...and Tandy can't ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer's targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?
- I seriously enjoy Tandy so much. I want to be friends with her so bad. I actually could see myself being her best friend, like the girl in the book! I don’t remember her name, C, or something like that, calls and bugs her about reading a book. Who does that remind you of?
- I liked the plot in this one, but it was odd because there were two plots. I think that the book could have mainly focused on Matthew’s trial and it would have been more complete.
- The new mystery man in the story was interesting. I really enjoyed how he dealt with the children and gave the stable “parentage” they really were lacking.
- The original plot, the private school murders, really was just not necessary. They “kinda” tie together, but I think that Tandy could have just started working as a detective on her brother’s case instead of delving as minimally into the private school murders as she did. I was actually confused at the end of the book because I didn’t remember how the whole private school murder situation played out.
