Entering their Senior year, the gang believes they left the rough seas
behind on their summer cruise. Yet while they were away, seemingly random
graffiti spread throughout Asbury. After a talented, young woman goes
missing, Maddie, Cornelious, Carly and Pilot wonder if there could be a
connection—since the graffiti suddenly stops. Things take a turn for
the worse when her body is found a few weeks later, viciously

Most believe the murderer to be an outsider, until cryptic journal entries
and close friends of the young woman point to someone in town. Things only
get messier when the local bully (and Pitbulls gang leader) approaches the
four sleuths, announcing one of his Pitbulls has gone missing as well. Could
his missing Pitbull simply be the murderer on the run?

The deeper they investigate, the foggier everything seems. When Jeremiah
Gibbz is arrested for murder, Cornelious is torn between trusting his father
or accepting the mounting evidence.

In addition to Jeremiah’s legal troubles, he begins planning a
presidential campaign and brings a hopeful future running mate to
town…with his family. Among the new family, is beautiful and sly high
school Senior, Chelsea Jaminucco—who (with Jeremiah’s blessing)
is intent on making Cornelious her own.

Through everything, the gang celebrates their senior year with friends and
each other. As scholarships and college loom closer than ever, the foursome
find it difficult to focus on the case.

When typical high school problems and slippery interferences crowd the
gang’s life, can they find the truth behind Asbury’s gruesome
murder? Can they stick together, or will this case be the one that pulls
them apart for good?


About the Author

For as long as she could remember, Kelly Brady Channick loved making up
stories, and leaving her listeners/readers on the edge of their seats.

Perhaps that’s why she always managed to talk herself out of

After graduating from Ocean City High School in NJ, Kelly accepted a
basketball scholarship to Holy Family University, in Philadelphia. As a
lifelong athlete, Kelly understands the importance of teamwork and
overcoming adversity, something she hopes translates into her books.

Before writing page-turners, she taught first, fifth, sixth, seventh and
eighth grade — like a dessert menu, she simply had to test them all
out. But her favorite job is the one she’s now doing full time:
writing. Kelly loves to craft whodunit mysteries, leading readers through
various twists and turns filled with red-herrings, hidden clues, and more
peculiar characters than a reality show.

Kelly lives in South Jersey with her handsome husband, handful of energetic
kids, two cookie-stealing dogs, and an awfully smart cat.
