I actually may have liked this even better than the first book, In the Woods. The concept is absolutely ludicrous (a college student who looks exactly like Detective Cassie Maddox is murdered, and what's more she's using the name Cassie went by when she was undercover years ago, so Cassie goes undercover again, this time as the dead college student, fooling all her super close housemates and professors and advisors.) WTF? Somehow it works.
Bleak, depressing, and incredibly suspenseful.
Anyway, I'm totally into this series now and can't wait to read the next book.
