Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A high school English teacher in suburban Chicago sets out to find the murderer of a very unpopular colleague in this ``competently written'' debut. PW noted that the mystery is ``surprisingly entertaining in spite of its focus: child homosexual prostitution and snuff movies, among other unsavory topics.'' (Dec.)
