MURDER AT THE CLASS REUNION by Triss Stein

MURDER AT THE CLASS REUNION

KIRKUS REVIEW

 You can't go home again, magazine reporter Kay Engels learns when she flies up to Falls City, New York, for her high-school reunion-- only to find her old flame Chris Campbell happily married, his thrice- married cousin Terry carrying on with ever-infatuated Richie McDowell, and a third Campbell cousin, Tony, having to break off his chastely budding romance with Kay when he's accused of Terry's murder. Follow lots more suspicious doings--from Terry's escort revealing well-earned ties to the Chicago mob to Tony's beloved aunt Maggie Prestwick's plan to give her rundown farm back to the Indians--but nothing dampens Kay's spirits for long (``It was a good day, wasn't it? In spite of everything,'' Tony tells her a few hours after finding Terry's corpse), not even the news that she's adopted, or Chief Al LaForge's announcement that Tony is the killer. We know better; it must be somebody with much less nice manners.... Even if first-novelist Stein's Pollyanna-ish prose doesn't capture the Mary Higgins Clark crowd, it's sure to appeal to Nancy Drew loyalists. Maybe you can go back to high school again--especially if you've never left.
