David Crandall's mother was murdered. With few clues, no witnesses, and no motive, the police were never able to solve the crime. Now, two years after the murder, David's starting his senior year and struggling to get on with his life. But still, the doubt remains: could someone in his small town know something about his mother's death? And when David uncovers troubling clues that lead to a deep family secret, he starts to wonder if his mother's death is tied to the scandal. Then one night, David spies his father burying an old rifle in a deserted lot near his house, and is left with one thought - is his own father the killer?

The novel is about a boy that is a senior in high school at a prestigious private school called The Arsenal. The school used to be a military school but now is just a regular private school that keeps some formal traditions from when it was a military academy. The main character named David Crandall is the son of the headmaster of the school and his mother was murdered a few years before the book takes place. They never found out who murdered her so early on in the book the police chief reopened the investigation. David was really curious on who murdered his mom so he and his Misty Cleary started investigating on their own to try find out who the murder was.
At the school they have a ceremonial team called the dartington rifles that are made up of nine students who are the heads of different clubs at the school and then the tenth member is the best shooter in the school. At the end of the school year the ten members have a shooting competition and the top shot out of ten shots at 50 yards wins first shot. First shot is also a ceremonial tradition at the school were at the graduation ceremony the winner of the completion shots a metal target 50 yards away to begging the graduation ceremony.
In conclusion I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspenseful, mysterious novels and also to people who want to read a book that keeps you interested until the end. If you want to find out who murdered David’s mother go and pick up this book and read it until the end.
The ending really felt, abrupt and unfinished. It didn't tie up all the loose ends and felt unfinished. It was almost like the author ran out of time.
I just really find this boring, it kind of drags on way to long.
