Review: Nick may have started out as a volunteer with Portland Search and Rescue, but this follow-up to the author’s earlier mystery Body in the Woods finds him a prime suspect of murder based mostly on circumstantial evidence. Now his fellow volunteers, crush Alexis and her friend Ruby, must work to clear his name and track down the real killer. Nick’s obstacles to innocence include his violent-scenes doodling in school notebooks, a knife collection, obsession with shoot-em-up video games, and the discovery of his DNA at the crime scene. Narration alternates between characters, including the killer, and combines with solid forensic elements for an action-packed whodunit.
