Booklist Review: "Everyone has their own rules. From the good-natured jock to the devious gossip, they all have things they will never do, or things they will always do, and none more so than August DeYoung, a rich high-school senior. August and several of his classmates have all been betrayed or been betrayers, and now, at the end-of-the-year scavenger hunt bash, they are bent on dark, sadistic revenge. Even the most innocent Robin, the trusting good girl who, at the start of the novel, is running away from the horror might have something to hide. As dead bodies and severed parts start showing up, the partiers suspect there's more to this than just a hunt for clues during a night of fun. There are a lot of characters, all interconnected in various ways, which are sometimes hard to keep straight. While the plot twists wildly from person to person, making the reader unsure of who is important or who is going to die next, that's in keeping with the horror-movie-style action. Fans of the genre will be horrified, just the way they like it.--Comfort, Stacey Copyright 2010 Booklist"
