In the Dead of Summer | [Gillian Roberts]

In the Dead of Summer

While teaching summer school at exclusive Philly Prep, English teacher Amanda Pepper feels a sense of foreboding. First, a reading of Romeo and Juliet activates some very strange chemistry. Then the computer science teacher begins receiving anonymous go-back-to-Africa phone calls. A young Vietnamese boy dies in a drive-by shooting. And late one night, outside a Chinatown massage parlor, student April Tuong is kidnapped. Random violence? Perhaps.

Publisher's Summary

While teaching summer school at exclusive Philly Prep, English teacher Amanda Pepper feels a sense of foreboding. First, a reading of Romeo and Juliet activates some very strange chemistry. Then the computer science teacher begins receiving anonymous go-back-to-Africa phone calls. A young Vietnamese boy dies in a drive-by shooting. And late one night, outside a Chinatown massage parlor, student April Tuong is kidnapped.

Random violence? Perhaps. But Amanda refuses to let gentle April vanish without at least asking a few questions, starting in her own classroom. Yet the truth, when she finds it, is appalling, deadly, and much too close to home....

    Story
    "This was a great mystery!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Dead of Summer to be better than the print version?

    I have read the print version but I do enjoy a good narrator reading to me.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it kept me guessing. And the ending was very exciting, tense and ultimately satisfying.


    What does Susan Denaker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voices are great, especially for the two main characters, which isn't the case with the other person who reads Gillian Roberts' books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Who is spreading the hate and violence and why are they after Amanda Pepper?


    Any additional comments?

    A very good listen. I so prefer Susan Denaker to the other person who does this series.
