In the small town of Carmody, somebody is killing the most popular kids in high school... Can Shauna and Luisa discover who it is before the killer comes for them? More
Somebody is killing the coolest kids in Carmody…
Nobody believes Shauna McLeod when she says she’s witnessed a murder in the park one foggy afternoon. Even her friends think it was some kind of sick practical joke… until a girl drowns in a deserted swimming pool a few days later. Accident or murder? Shauna, her best friend Luisa and Luisa’s screwball brother Ruben are betting on murder.
Despite their suspicions, it hardly seems possible. How could there be a killer in sleepy little Carmody?
When Davina Sheffield and Charlie Bannister plummet off the school’s old bell tower at morning assembly two days later even the police begin to take an interest. It looks like a joint suicide attempt but there are too many questions… and not enough answers. Ruben, Shauna and Luisa begin asking questions, intent on tracking down a killer who always seems to be just one step ahead.
It’s a game that quickly turns into one of survival - who can they trust when it seems likely that the killer is somebody they already know – a friend, a teacher or even Shauna’s old boyfriend Daniel who has arrived out of nowhere, determined to re-ignite their romance?
It’s not until fog once again grips little Carmody that the climax of the killer’s game is revealed. The stage is set and the final scene enacted in the old summer pavilion in the park. There Shauna and Luisa come face to face with a nightmare and realize even your best guess can be a wrong one.
Then their struggle for survival really begins…
