Lily Ellsworth--erect, firm, white-haired, and stylish--is the grand dame of Dowling, Massachusetts, and possesses an iron will and a bottomless purse. When she hires Spenser to investigate her grandson Jared Clark's alleged involvement in a school shooting, Spenser is led into an inquiry that grows more harrowing at every turn. Though seven people were killed in cold blood, and despite Jared's being named as a co-conspirator by the other shooter, Mrs. Ellsworth is convinced of her grandson's innocence. Jared's parents are resigned to his fate, and the boy himself doesn't seem to care whether he goes to prison for a crime he might not have committed.

As the probe goes on, Spenser finds himself up against a number of roadblocks--from the school officials who don't want him asking questions, to Jared's own parents, who are completely indifferent to the boy's defense. Ultimately, Spenser discovers a web of blackmail and some heavy-duty indiscretions--and a truth too disturbing to contemplate. Before the case reaches its unfortunate end, he is forced to make a series of difficult decisions--with fatal consequences.

    " This was my first Robert Parker book and I really enjoyed it. It's a modern-day mystery with believable characters, an interesting plot, and it's not predictable. "

    " Typical Parker Spenser novel, with strengths - witty dialogue throughout - and weaknesses - Spenser's constant macho attitude - every woman wants me, but I'm saving myself for Susan Silverman. "

    " Ok -but why do they always make the psychologists such jerks. Also, he did not do his homework and I think anyone that knows a little bit about how schools work and what mental retardation is will see that - still, I had to find out what happened. "
