Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of You Betrayed Me delivers a "juicy creep-a-thon . . . [that] builds to a surprising cliffhanger ending" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). At first, it sounds like the answer to a parent's prayers: an elite boarding school in the Oregon mountains where wayward kids turn their lives around. But behind the idyllic veneer lie disturbing rumors of missing students and questionable treatments. Jules Farentino knows her half-sister, Shaylee, has been going off the rails lately. She's just not sure Blue Rock Academy is the answer. Accepting a teaching position there lets Jules keep an eye on Shay, but also confirms her fears. One student is found hanged, another near death. Something sinister is at hand—and Jules may already be too late to stop it. As a brutal snowstorm sweeps in, cutting off the remote campus from the rest of the world, Jules will discover the Academy's dark secrets, and confront a murderous evil without limits, without remorse, without mercy . . . "Her latest whodunit hits all the marks, taking readers on a nail-biting roller-coaster ride." —Library Journal Praise for Lisa Jackson and her novels "Lisa Jackson shows yet again why she is one of the best at romantic suspense. A pure nail biter." —Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Shiveringly good suspense! Lisa Jackson ratchets up the tension . . . Each chapter will leave you wondering who to trust. The answer: You don't want to know . . ." —Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

        Starred review from February 22, 2010
        The murder of Julia “Jules” Farentino's father creates a bond with her younger half-sister, Shaylee Stillman in this juicy creep-a-thon from bestseller Jackson (Chosen to Die
        ). That bond is tested years later when 17-year-old Shaylee is shipped off to Blue Rock Academy, an Oregon school in “the middle of no-damned-where” for at-risk teens. Run by iron-fisted Rev. Tobias Lynch, Blue Rock recently had a student, Lauren Conway, go missing and a female teacher dismissed for inappropriate behavior with a student. When Jules takes a teaching position at Blue Rock to rescue Shay, she discovers Cooper Trent, her ex-boyfriend, working there as an undercover PI looking into Lauren's disappearance. The scary “suicide” strangulation of Shay's roommate and the murder of her teaching assistant boyfriend throw the school into further uproar. Meanwhile, the “Leader,” the head of a secret cult at Blue Rock, plots more mayhem. This campy cool thriller builds to a surprising cliffhanger ending.
