First Shot by Walter Sorrells


David Crandall attends a prestigious prep school in Maine, as have generations of his well known ancestors. His mother was murdered two years ago on the campus and the killer was never found. David starts to suspect that his father, who is also the headmaster, may have killed her. Pretty decent mystery/adventure concept, but Sorrells totally fails to deliver. The first third of the novel was gripping, the rest fell back on cliched mystery ploys, a strange time lapse, and completely unbelievable wrap up. Nay with rolling eyes.

Good suspense, like his other works, but Nay for me.
