May 2012 Book of the Month.

Good grief! – talk about tense (practically unbearable towards the end of this book). S.J. Bolton has again delivered a cracking, addictive thriller. This one is set in the rarefied atmosphere of Cambridge University where far too many female undergraduates are, seemingly, committing suicide. DC Lacey goes undercover to investigate. This is her 5th crime book and her 1st sequel, to Now You See Me.

Dead Scared Synopsis

When a Cambridge student dramatically attempts to take her own life, DI Mark Joesbury realizes that the university has developed an unhealthy record of young people committing suicide in extraordinary ways. Against huge personal misgivings, Joesbury sends young policewoman DC Lacey Flint to Cambridge, with a brief to work under-cover, posing as a depression-prone, vulnerable student. Psychiatrist Evi Oliver is the only person in Cambridge who knows who Lacey really is - or so they both hope. But as the two women dig deeper into the darker side of university life, they discover a terrifying trend ...And when Lacey starts experiencing the same disturbing nightmares reported by the dead girls, she knows that she is next.
