Book three in the Anthony Award-winning mystery series featuring Amanda Pepper, the resourceful English teacher at Philly Prep.
Amanda is sorting books for a school fundraiser, when she comes across a book for battered women that contains a special and frightening message from its original, anonymous owner. Desperate to learn who donated the books, Amanda's search leads her to deliberate brutality and its cold-blooded consequences.
An interesting idea for a story but the main character is as dumb as a box of rocks. She's brave, some would say foolhardy and there are a few scattered references to her beauty but you know very early on she's not the brightest bulb in the chandelier...and we're stuck with her. The action is nice but the journey is painful. How many more metaphors can I come up with I hear you wonder? Well, let's put it this way. She's game, but as thick as two short planks.
