Excellent Mystery

The author has done it again with another excellent story...It begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate - and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns in evidence for the state and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace. Now, it's 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents - until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That's when the McCabes call Kinsey for help.
As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he's not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Kinsey may be leaving traces of himself for her to find.
I couldn't put this book down.
Sad as it may seem there will be no Z to finish the alphabet, because after "Y is for Yesterday," Sue Grafton died at age 77 after her long battle with cancer.
She will be sorely missed. I loved all her mysteries from A-Y as well as her short stories entitled, "Kinsey and Me." She was an awesome writer. I have come to love her books, and miss her very much.
