9780060724009: The Finishing School: A Novel of Suspense

Michele Martinez, author of the critically acclaimed Most Wanted, which USA Today called "a breakout," brings back savvy, sexy federal prosecutor Melanie Vargas in a new case that pits her against a very clever, very scary killer

In a glittering penthouse high above Park Avenue, two beautiful teenagers, students at an exclusive Manhattan girls' school, lie dead under suspicious circumstances. Feeling pressure from the top to solve the high-profile case fast, Melanie breaks all the rules and goes undercover. Teamed with Dan O'Reilly, a hard-to-resist FBI agent with a talent for making her pulse race, Melanie embarks on a wild chase from the rarefied world of New York's elite private schools to the darkest recesses of the city's nightlife. And, ultimately, into a fight for her life against a devious killer who has no intention of getting caught.

About the Author:

Michele Martinez, a graduate of Harvard University and Stanford Law School, was a federal prosecutor in New York City for eight years. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and two children.

From AudioFile:

Two teenagers who attend a posh private school are found dead, apparently from drug overdoses, and Melanie Vargas, federal prosecutor, investigates, going undercover to uncover the truth. This is a badly written book that reads like a soap opera, and, unfortunately, Isabel Keating performs it as such. Characters are read with overdone and/or weak accents and over-the-top emotions. No cliché is missing in the book, which is filled with unnecessary details that bear no relationship to the story. This is an unfortunate marriage of a weak book and a weak reader.
