After being interviewed by police, Daniel is eliminated as a suspect however, grief-stricken and impatient with the slow process of the police investigation, Daniel and Tamsyn’s younger sister, Carey, join forces to search for the killer.  While Daniel and Carey dig into Tamsyn’s past, they uncover dark secrets and begin to piece together why someone would want her killed.  “The English Boys” is located in the general collection and can be borrowed for three weeks.
