The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it.

But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the murder, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn't so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final year project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?


My Opinion:

There are so many things I loved about this book, the characters, the plot, the unusual writing, the complicated crime, it was just amazing. We follow Pip on the search for even the tiniest clues with such a desperation and concentration, that after it you actually want to be productive and she gives you so many good feelings. I could always understand all of her action and how her brillant mind connected everything, but also how she grew through this book. her interactions with Ravi were also so sweet and funny you will adore them. They worked so perfectly together and with all the other lovely (or unlovely) characters. Also the case was extremely interesting with its fast paced development and sneaky suspects, you couldn't put it down till you finished it, I swear. The world was nothing special it was just some random little town, but I didn't expect anything big. now to one of my favorite things was the writing style, it kept changing between protocol enters, interviews, pictures, maps and normal I perspective. That way we could have all of the case data on on place, every thing the suspects sad and all the other clues and still experienced Pips thoughts and feelings which combined it perfectly.
