This was a solid and compelling murder mystery, with a great main character. I liked the premise immediately, and it was definitely one of those books you don't want to put down once you start reading. It had shades of Veronica Mars, [b:The Raven Boys|17675462|The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)|Maggie Stiefvater|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1459349126s/17675462.jpg|18970934] (without the magic and with decidedly darker boys), and [b:Endangered|18713041|Endangered|Lamar Giles|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1414510702s/18713041.jpg|26573710], plus interludes of the killer's voice that worked really well. I also might give this to fans of [b:I Hunt Killers|7766027|I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)|Barry Lyga|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1333289403s/7766027.jpg|10644152] and [b:The Naturals|13597723|The Naturals (The Naturals, #1)|Jennifer Lynn Barnes|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1374862751s/13597723.jpg|19187762].

A heads up (this isn't a spoiler for the mystery) that there are several side characters, girls, who were probably drugged and someone took a sexually posed photo of them together and shared it around. I really appreciated the nuanced and unflinching way that other girl characters talked about/dealt with the incident. The book does discuss this entire incident/crime a few times over the course of the story, so if that might be triggering to encounter in a mystery that is otherwise not about sexual assault, now you know it's coming.

I received an eArc from the publisher and Net Galley for review.

I was torn about how to rate this book, and now I'm torn about how to review it.

I loved the plot. Five boys go into the woods to hunt, and one of them is killed. At least one of the boys know who the killer is, but no one will admit it. They think that if they stick together, they're safe.

Awesome premise, and very well done.

HOWEVER. Something that will make me put down a book in about three seconds is a teenage character who knows EVERYTHING.

There were so many things that happened in this book that Kate should have reported - to the DA, to the police, to her MOM, ffs. But she kept it secret because apparently a 16 (or whatever) year old knows better than adults. Kate was convinced of Shep's innocence after having vaguely known him for what, a couple of months or something? I so badly wanted that to backfire for her; I wanted Shep to be guilty just so dumbass Kate would learn a lesson.

But she didn't, and that was why I only gave the book three stars.

I know teenagers have feelings and emotions and all those things matter. But when you have evidence or things that might help a murder investigation, you SHARE THEM WITH THE POLICE, CHILD. ( )

Five rich boys went hunting at River Point while drunk and high. Only four of them went home. Everyone wants to know who killed the fifth one, but the survivors aren't talking and there's no evidence pointing to one or the other. Kate works for the attorney assigned the River Point case and she has a personal interest in figuring out who is responsible for Grant's death, an interest that can't be made public if she wants to keep her job. But as she digs deeper into the incident, it becomes clear that nothing is as it appears and the chance that this was a murder, rather than an accident, becomes more and more likely. And Kate's digging hasn't gone unnoticed. She needs to figure out who the killer is, and quickly, or more lives may be on the line.

I loved the pacing in this book. There were no boring lulls and the revelations were appropriately spaced out through the book. The thing I probably appreciated the most were the short (1-3 page) anonymous interludes from the killer. We knew that he was the one who shot Grant, but we didn't know which of the boys it was. These interludes made clear the killer's thought process after he did the deed and as he continued to hide his guilt from the others. They really heightened the suspense and upped the stakes of the story, creating additional worry for Kate's safety. I also loved the text message epigraphs at the beginning of each chapter. Again, these gave us additional information about the motivations and thoughts of the characters that enhanced the reading experience.

My biggest disappoint with the book was probably the romance. Not gonna lie, I was pretty happy with the assumption at the beginning of the book that no romance was gonna happen on the page because Kate's romantic partner was dead before the book began. But then there was the revelation that she was texting Shep instead and we still have to deal with romantic drama and I just didn't need that and it definitely took away from my overall enjoyment of the book.

The ending was very neat and tidy. Kate was able to find the crucial bit of missing evidence that clearly implicated one person and she was able to arrange a super drama-filled reveal in the middle of an official hearing that justified her interference and judgment throughout the investigation. I have a feeling that if I read more mysteries (I tend to avidly avoid them) I might have been less satisfied with the ending, but it worked well for me so I have no complaints. All in all, this was a quick, engrossing story that's definitely worth a read. ( )

Nobody knows what happened that morning at River Point. Grant Perkins is killed during a hunting trip with his four best friends. One of them killed Grant but no one is admitting who shot him as they made a pact to stick together and claim none of them knows who is responsible. It’s unclear whether the death was an accident or murder.
As part of her internship with the district attorney’s office, senior Kate Marino is assigned to help unravel the boy’s lies. However, Kate’s boss, Mr.Stone, doesn’t know that she is harboring secrets that link her to the River Point boys, and everyone, including Grand has something to hide. Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice Grant. But throughout the story, Grant wasn’t who she thought he was and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. Together Kate and her boss work hard to find whatever evidence they can to incriminate the boys.
As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might have not been an accident at all.
Throughout the book the author tries to add as much tension and suspense as possible and using changing narrators to get the reader to continue reading untill the intriguing conclusion...
