Review: The Dead Student

The Dead Student The Dead Student by John Katzenbach
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's been a long time since I read a John Katzenbach book, and I'm sorry to say I wasn't impressed by this one.

When Timothy -Moth- Warner's uncle dies, it is ruled a suicide. But Moth knows better. His uncle is also his AA sponsor, and he would never leave his nephew alone. He then asks his ex girlfriend Andrea (also known as Andy Candy... and sorry, I just couldn't get over this ridiculous name) to help him discover his uncle's killer.

With help from a prosecutor who is also an addict, Andrea and Timothy discover a psychopathic serial killer that is now trying to kill them too.

It is a light, fast read, but to me it seemed as if there was a formula: deeply messed up main characters, an investigation that is more easy than it would seem, and an ending that seems a bit contrived.
2.5 stars rounded up to 3

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
