Review by

Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles are once again teamed up in this tale of conspiracy and murder. A number of children whose parents have been killed in suspicious circumstances have been sent to 'Evensong' .This is a secret and highly guarded boarding school which is run by the 'Mephisto' group ( from earlier books)When suspicious deaths begin to happen in this supposedly safe environment,detective Rizzoli begins to investigate and soon makes some important connections.A fast-moving and very exciting story-line which stands up well along side her other books. My only slight caveat would be that a knowledge of the earlier books particularly 'The Mephisto Club' would help with understanding the plot of this one a lot.
