"He went searching for the truth. Now a killer has found him. The more you know, the more there is to fear ... Three years ago, sixteen-year-old Ellen Vicksburg went missing from the quiet town of River Remez, New Mexico. Ellen was kind, studious, and universally liked. Her younger brother, Ben, could imagine nothing worse than never knowing what happened to her--until, on the first anniversary of her death, he found her body in a deep grave by the river's edge. Ben, now seventeen, is committed to finding the monster who abducted and strangled Ellen. Police believe she was the victim of a psychopath known as the Demon. But Ben--a math geek too smart for his high-school classes--continues to pore over the evidence at the local police precinct, gaining an unlikely ally in his school's popular new girl, Ro Majors. In his sister's files, Ben's analytical mind sees patterns that don't fit, tiny threads that he connects to clues from other similar unsolved murders. As the body count rises, a picture emerges of an adversary who is as cunning and methodical as he is twisted. At first the police view Ben's investigation with suspicion. Soon his obsession will mark him as a threat. But uncovering the truth may not be enough to keep Ben and those he loves safe from a relentless killer who has nothing left to lose."--Jacket flap.

Liked it about half way through, then began to hate the spoiled rich kids. High school - blech. Agree with comment about it being more for the young adult.

Faye Kellerman never disappoints, and I was not disappointed in this one at all. in fact I would love to see some of these characters again down the road.

Very disappointed -- this is basically a Young Adult book, not adult at all.

Very disappointing. Too much teen angst. It could have benefited from considerable editing.

I was on the waiting list for a few months- I was thrilled when I finally picked up this book! But this book really disappointed me. I was expecting another great read and it was not very interesting! Really disappointed....
