She was a student at the same high school as Gregory, an exclusive academy well known for being a playground for the rich.

And with the return of Gabe’s father, former hit-man Chris Donnatti, the case takes an even more sinister turn…

Good, but I have some gripes.
I liked book 20 in series very much, and I am diving into volume 21 right away, however I do have some general complaints.
1- Is it the writing, or the narrator, or the fact that I listen in 1.5X speed… or a combination of all 3 that causes the teenaged characters in this series to NEVER ring true? They are nauseatingly polite and goofy and I don’t buy their angst for a second. This was true with Rina’s boys when they were younger and it’s true now with Gabe et al. (seriously, “Cuckoo Bird” as a term of endearment??? barf!)
2- Enough with what people are wearing all the time!!! Let me use my imagination please.
3- I am totally over Rina. What else does she do but fawn over her husband and cook great meals… and bring her husband sandwiches when he’s working late? ARGH. Tedious.
Nevertheless, I am still a fan!
