My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudioBookBoom in exchange for an honest review.
This was fun!Be aware though, that you need to be able to suspend your beliefs a bit and that this is the first of a series and many details are left hanging at the end of book 1.
Skyler Foxe is a young closeted high school teacher, who happens upon a dead body one night out dancing with friends at a club. The young man turns out to be the son of Skyler’s principal at school and he invests himself in the case, to the point where he actually starts to investigate it himself. This is the parts where you have to suspend your beliefs, or at least I had to, because I found it quite unrealistic that he would actually do this, to the extend he takes it too, including withholding evidence and knowledge from the police…
The murder investigation is not the only thing going on though, there are also strange going on’s at the High School, where everyone seem to be hiding something or other. Teachers as well as students. Add to that Skyler’s crush on his new co-worker, his jilted hook up smashing up his car and almost outing him at his work place and his students acting up in class…. Skyler is a busy man!
The narrator did a great job, the story was fun and so was the mystery. Skyler is quite a likeable, albeit a bit annoying, character and I would definitely consider getting the second one of the series. If nothing else, then to find out what happened to poor Julia with the great t-shirts.
