Search for Books or E-books
Twenty-four years have passed since the murdered girl was buried.
The classmate who confessed to the stabbing is doing time. Both
families moved out of town. Case closed? Justice done? Not so fast.
As they converge on their California high school's 100th anniversary
celebration, cryptic notes are unsettling members of the "Class of
'67." Some question what they thought they knew.
Could a confused Doug Brandling have confessed to murder to cover
for someone? Does his accuser, Elizabeth, really think she got it right?
Is Finn, her lover of the time, certain he's done with Liz? Can old Snub
Randall, teacher of the year, keep his hands off his student-conquest?
Shouldn't Monsignor Phelan be able to keep his alterboys straight?
Might Farley Pike, the lip flapping sissified-teacher, survive the
advent of Elizabeth? Could Doug ever have his family back? Will the
"real" murderer strike again, during the Santa Reina High Centennial?
Is it possible for Elizabeth keep her pants on?
Satire, angst, ego, and surprise draw the reader through the threeday
fete and lives so di erent from one another you wonder how they
could hail from the same town. In Santa Reina, though, everyone has
something to confess.
