Forensic Mystery By Alan Ferguson Being a coroner's assistant means that Cameryn has seen more gore than your average seventeen-year-old. But even Cammie is shocked when Kyle O'Neil, the most popular guy in school, discovers the gruesome corpse of their English teacher murdered in his own bed. As Cammie gets involved in the case, she finds herself drawn to Kyle, and considers trusting him with the secret that she can't even tell her father. But when their relationship starts to move toward romance, the struggle to solve the case of her teacher's death intensifies. Will Cameryn be too preoccupied to identify the killer in time? This series is one of the most fantastic books I've ever read. The are fantastic mysteries, they seem average at first, but the end made my pulse race and gave me CHILLS. I made this not-so-mistake, I got the third and fourth late one night, I got home and couldn't sleep so I pick the third up. I finished around 1:30. Oh man. What a whopper of an ending. I sounded like this: "OH MY GOSH!!! AAAHHHHH!!!!!" then I couldn't help but look outside, it was a moonless night, totally dark. I definitely couldn't sleep after that..what was my solution? To pick up the fifth. Okay, so the only problem with this review, is I've never read the first in the series. I thought the second was first. So, I've never read the beginning of Cammie's adventures. It seemed like maybe there was something before it, but I never missed a piece of vital information, so if you want to skip the first one too, go ahead. This is a hall of famer, and a DEFINITE READ IN THE DARK..under a moonless night..when you can't sleep...(I will be picking up the first one as soon as I can)
