Jack Marston is the student services director at City College in Minneapolis.  He lives with his beloved Lori Jacobs.  When she receives an invitation to attend the Riverview class of 1989 twenty year high school reunion, Lori hesitates as she says little about her teen years.  Jack agrees to accompany her though she seems reluctant.  He figures he will learn so much about the woman he loves when they visit her roots.


The first night dinner and icebreaker is held at Georgina’s 40-Mile Club.  However, the return home proves brutal as someone murders former quarterback Elroy Guteman near the club.  More homicides follow as Jack and Lori become embroiled in Sheriff Arnason’s investigation into a vicious pack eating alumni.


The latest Jack Marston amateur sleuth (see Bloody halls) is an entertaining whodunit as a serial killer with a vendetta attacks the class of 89.  The story line is fast-paced from the moment the lead couple arrives in Riverview and never slows until the final confrontation.  Readers will enjoy this strong Minnesota thriller as Jack learns you get what you wish for as he knows a lot about his girlfriend’s past now since it is deadly haunting the present.
