Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Senior year at Ellingham Academy for Stevie Bell isn't going well. With the cold case of the century solved, Stevie is adrift. There is nothing to distract her from the questions pinging around her brain--questions about college, love, and life in general. Relief comes when David invites Stevie and her friends to join him for study abroad, and his new friend Izzy introduces her to a double-murder cold case. In 1995, nine friends from Cambridge University went to a country house and played a drunken game of hide-and-seek. Two were found in the woodshed the next day, murdered with an ax. The case was assumed to be a burglary gone wrong, but one of the remaining seven saw something she can't explain. This was no break-in. Someone's lying about what happened in the woodshed"-- Provided by publisher.

    Johnson elevates her Truly Devious star from a one-case wunderkind to a true serial sleuth in this fifth series installment (and second standalone adventure) as Stevie Bell takes her skills abroad. David, her boyfriend and the epicenter of much of her anxiety, is studying in London, and when he proposes a one-week study abroad for Stevie and her three friends, Stevie jumps at the chance. But it's not long before a mystery finds her: David's friend has an aunt who, as a student on holiday herself, woke to find two of her friends murdered by axe—and all nine of their group seem to have secrets. The trail is cold and time is limited, but Stevie's on the case—if the murderer doesn't sniff her out first. Johnson has found a comfortable groove, settling naturally into Stevie's anxious, active mind while still finding fresh twists and turns in her cases. In both the case and Stevie's personal life, this entry ends with less resolution than most. There's no doubt about it: Stevie will be back.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Johnson's stressed-out, singular teen detective won hearts—and spots on best-seller lists—with the Truly Devious series and in the standalone adventure that followed; readers will happily follow Stevie to this second location.
