.. .chilling... A tense, cautionary page-turner from start to finish... --Kirkus Reviews Masterson College in rural Vermont is where the elite send their children for a top-tch education. At Masterson because of his skill as a hockey player and the financial aid that comes with it, Keenan Brody meets pretty freshman figure skater Shann Dawson. Captivated by Shann's grace on the ice and her easygoing nature, Keenan finds himself in love for the first time, maneuvering uncertain terrain and unsure if his feelings are reciprocated. But when Shann goes missing from campus, Keenan finds himself in a harrowing situation. Shann's parents are devastated, her peers are alarmed, and the local police feel unusual pressure to find her. The lead investigator finds Keenan suspicious, especially after learning that Keenan has a rival for Shann's affection. As time goes by and Shann fails to appear, the evidence points more strongly in Keenan's direction, and the authorities are compelled to prosecute him. Rich with suspenseful courtroom drama, From a Single Seed gives insight into the complexities of the American justice system and shows how fluid the truth can be. So compelling is the evidence that it will keep you reading into the night. So unsettling is the conclusion that it will keep you awake when you are done.
