Kill You Last by Todd Strasser YP FIC STRASSER

Shelby’s world gets turned upside down and inside out when three girls disappear and the only thing linking them is that they were all photographed at her dad’s studio. Then there’s the cryptic emails claiming that her father has dark secrets.  As the whole town begins turning on her father, Shelby decides she has to help solve the mystery herself, but she may not like what she finds and she may not live to tell anyone about it.

This is the third part of Strasser’s (and I apologize for the pun) Thrillogy.  I reviewed and enjoyed Blood on My Hands and Wish You Were Dead.  All three have different main characters, so you can read them in any order.  This one has a really solid mystery and plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing.  I like the use of technology in the stories and the way Strasser makes the teens sleuthing somewhat believable and realistic.  Kill You Last has some added creepiness, because Shelby discovers that a lot of people around her are pretty darn scuzzy.  This is a great, creepy, don’t-want-to-put-it-down-until-you-find-out-who-the-killer-is book.  If you want something fast, fun, and exciting, then you have your beach reading material right here.
