What could they have possibly done to deserve this?

From the author of Don't Go There, The Rubik Memorandum and Smitten is a coming of age romance that is interrupted by a serial killer. Two Dallas Area teenagers were found murdered behind the supermarket with a gunshot wound in the back of their pretty blond heads. Drugs were not involved. Their homes were in the trendy, upscale suburban neighborhood of Thomas Glen. They were honor students. The police have no clues.

Solving the case falls into the laps of Police Lieutenant Reed Pascoe and Detective Denise Smith. Nothing about the investigation makes sense to them. Suspects are scarce or nonexistent. Their investigation tears apart the lives of everyone remotely close to the kids or the crime, revealing secrets, infidelity, and perversion. In the process, nobody is left undamaged.
