"Suspenseful. Creates mystery from the ordinary, protected lives of Ivy League kids, slowly peeling away their deceptions to reveal denial, cowardice, and chilling indifference. Engrossing." -"-Publishers Weekly"
"Simon's characterizations are excellent, and she quickly draws the reader deeply into the nuances of the story. Highly recommended." -"-Library Journal"
"A wonderful mystery-suspense story with marvelous twists and turns that keep you guessing--and turning pages--right to the very end." --"Detroit Free Press"
On a New England college campus, the naked body of a beautiful student is found frozen in a bank of snow. Why had she not even been reported missing by her friends?
Spencer O'Malley, the police detective assigned to the case, is soon drawn into the strange world of four friends, Jim, Conni, Albert and Kristina. O'Malley finds that these children of privilege who played, studied, and occasionally slept together also kept secrets of their own, secrets that must be pieced together to form an entirely new picture.
O'Malley is a stranger in this Ivy League environment, yet he feels an affinity with the victim. In her death, he gradually discovers the truth of her mysterious and complex life, and each revelation is more shocking than the last.
Suspenseful, claustrophobic and utterly compelling, 'Red Leaves' puts Paullina Simons in the very front rank of contemporary writers.
