As the star player of Dartmouth College’s women’s basketball team, Kristina Kim is beautiful, intelligent, and fearless. But though she’s just twenty-one, Kristina has already had her share of heartache, loss, and dark secrets that haunt her. She’s best friends with Conni, Albert, and Jim, but the only one who seems to really know her is Albert. With long dark hair, tattoos, and a rebellious streak, Albert doesn’t fit in with the rest of the clean-cut Ivy Leaguers. Like Kristina, he has his share of secrets—secrets that are beginning to unravel this intimate circle of friends.

One wintry Thanksgiving weekend tragedy strikes. When Detective Spencer O’Malley goes to investigate something suspicious at the foot of a steep hill on Dartmouth’s campus, he doesn’t expect that the frozen, naked body found in deep snow would belong to Kristina Kim—the remarkable young woman he met recently who entranced him. Now Spencer will never know if the chemistry he had with her was real. All he can do is find her killer.

Spencer is pulled into the strange, complex web of the surviving friends. Many important questions about Kristina’s murder cannot be answered, such as why none of them reported her missing for nine days before her body was discovered. The more Spencer digs, the clearer it becomes that each of the three had a motive for killing Kristina. And as Spencer, seeking justice for a dead girl, is led down a labyrinth of deceit, every new revelation proves more shocking than the last … and more dangerous.

    " Load of incestious shit! The backwards/forwards dialogue especially at the beginning would be good enough to drive people to violence against the author. Worth recycling for toilet paper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Meagan | 2/10/2014

    " Somewhere between 3-4 stars. This was written by the author of my all time favorite book, The Bronze Horseman. I was impressed to see that she is capable of writing in a completely different style than the TBH trilogy. Red leaves is a whodunit murder mystery about a 21 year old girl with a close knit group of friends who all have motive for her death. Not only does this book focus on the murder but Simons focuses a lot on the characters and human nature. This wasn't my favorite book but it was an interesting one. There is an incestuous little twist but not QUITE as bad as you are first led to believe. An interesting ending...one to think over. To conservative readers there is a little bit of language and sexuality. Not as bad as her other books. "
