This is the first in the Ellie Avery series. Not as good as the 4th book, but still pretty good. Not as creepy and had to many characters to follow. That's my issue with mystery books, there's always so many characters that its hard to keep track of them. Especially when they are all women. In this book, people in Ellie's neighborhood start dieing, and even though she shouldn't she starts to investigate why. You'd think that after figuring out that someone put antifreeze in your water cup would be a sign to stop sleuthing. But, like Nancy Drew, she keeps at it. When will she learn?
