From the publisher—
One deadly weekend.
At St. Aidan the Great School, or STAGS, new things–and new people–are to be avoided. The grandeur of the boarding school and the prestige of the students’ bloodlines seem surreal to Greer MacDonald. A scholarship student who recently transferred to STAGS, Greer is ignored at best and mocked at worst by the school’s most admired circle of friends, the Medievals.
Greer is taken by surprise when the Medievals send her an invitation to an exclusive weekend retreat at the private family estate of their unofficial leader, Henry de Warlencourt. It’s billed as a weekend of “huntin’ shootin’ fishin’.”
As the weekend begins to take shape, it becomes apparent that beyond the luxurious trappings, predators are lurking, and they’re out for blood.
Why am I waiting so eagerly? Well, what can I say? I’m a patsy for a book that sounds like it could be a mashup of Deliverance and everybody’s worst high school nightmare. Maybe yes, maybe no but I’ve gotta find out for myself.
