No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.
This book is an excellent murder mystery! I was hooked from the first page. The story is primarily told from Kate’s perspective but also has alternating point of view from one of the unnamed boys and the police interview transcripts of the suspects.
Without giving too much away, the mystery revolved around more than just the murder of one of the five River Point Boys. It also dabbles in political corruption, mistaken identity, illegal betting, drugs and blackmail. There’s plenty to grab your attention in this story.
Kate finds herself in the middle of the investigation to find the murder suspect due to her relationship with one of the boys and her work with the DA’s office. As the story unfolds, more and more comes to light about the five boys and their various activities. I loved this story for all its twists and turns. It keeps you on your toes until the very end. It even concludes with a primetime legal drama courtroom style ending!
This was an excellent read that I couldn’t put down. For fans of mysteries and thrillers, definitely pick up this book!
