From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School—A fast-paced police procedural, set in semirural England. The action begins when an arrogant high school student is found bludgeoned to death. His mother, a reticent woman, is the next victim, but her murder appears to be even more hate-driven. Max, a police detective, and Jill, a profiling psychologist, work the case as they try to rework their personal relationship—the latter presented through snarky asides from each of them that will ring credible and humorous with readers. Complicating things at both a professional and personal level is the fact that Max's sons attend the same high school as the first victim—and then two more boys go missing. Wells does a good job of interweaving viewpoints and hinting at characters' motives that target self-preservation, whether from police inquiry or the scrutiny of intimates and neighbors. Both kids and adults are credible here, and the backstory is presented early enough that readers don't feel cheated of necessary information for solving along with Max and Jill. Teens who like puzzles and can enjoy seeing teachers' reputations skewered en route to a solution will find this a fast, pleasing read.—Francisca Goldsmith, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia
