UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
If you buy the idea that people still care deeply about what happened
to them while in high school 15 years ago, then this book is a good thriller. It doesn't offer anything new, but you will be wondering who done it until the very end. Unfortunately, the finale-epilogue, in an attempt to give absolutely everyone
a tidy and happy ending, warps many of the characters.
The reunion seems to have stirred up more than old memories, however, since a killer begins stalking the cheerleaders. Could one of her old schoolmates be a vicious killer? She had better find out soon, before she discovers the answer the hard way. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Oct., 336 pp., $7.99)
