Dead Scared by S. J. Bolton
  

Lovereading view...

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.

Synopsis

Dead Scared by S. J. Bolton

A spate of suicides. Each one a female university student. Each one more shocking than the last. The police know it cannot be coincidence. But they can't prove it. The only way to investigate is to send someone undercover. A young policewoman, as vulnerable as the others. As unprepared for the nightmare that will greet her. Watch your back, Lacey Flint...
