The Murder Game by Carrie Doyle


Luke wanted to spend some time with an English girl, so he and his roommate headed out at night to meet up with two girls.  They met and were chatting until they heard a noise.  They never expected to be at the scene of of a murder...

Sourcebooks Fire and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 6th.

Luke is at at a boarding school and he likes it there.  But when they take his roommate into custody, he can't stand it.  He knows he's not the killer but if he tells them how he knows they both will suffer punishment.  He decides to try to find the murderer himself.

There are lots of suspects.  The woman who was killed was married but she still flirted and slept with other men.  The more questions he asks, the more teachers warn him off the investigation.

He bounces from suspect to suspect but when he finds the right one, he's by himself and is taken hostage.  The man is going after his girlfriend and will be back.  Can Luke get free in time to save himself and his girl?

This is a complex mystery.  You don't know who to trust or who you can count  on.  But Luke doesn't give up...
