    One thought on “Why Isn't Becky Twitchell Dead?”

    1. 3.5 stars. Good gay mystery in which high school teacher Tom is asked to help out a student accused of murdering his girlfriend. I really enjoy the dynamic between Tom and his partner Scott.

    2. Tom Mason continues to help kids as much as he can (as long as they are over the age of 5).This time Mrs. Trask comes by Tom's school room to report that her son has been arrested for murder and desires Tom's help. Tom agrees and goes with her to the police station with her. Thereupon unfolds a story involving teenage love, sports, drugs, drinking, parents, people with limited power but who act as if they have more (aka, School Board), teacher unions, car chases in blizzards, blizzards, and brie [...]

    3. You know, I didn't realize it was a Tom and Scott mystery until just now. I believe I abandoned one of the other books as well.I couldn't make it past the first two chapters. The writing is just horrible!A conversation between two people. Tom (first person POV) would talk. Then the other person in the conversation would say a line of dialogue, then Tom would sum up what else the person went on to say. 3 times in a row in the same conversation. Let the character speak for himself!Didn't care abou [...]

    4. Nice follow up with a couple of mystifying points along the way, like why did the police not pick up on the threat to Tom in his classroom after the first death as obviously the Trask boy couldn't have done it and by implication either had an acomplice or someone else had commited the murder.Nevertheless it was a story well told and once on this roller coaster adventure it was impossible to put down until the "baddies" had been identified and motives explained. 3.5 stars marked up to 4

    5. Tom Mason is approached by a student's mother to help after her son is arrested for the murder of his girlfriend. He decides to investigate, with the help of his partner Scott, who really killed the girl. Their investigation leads to a drug ring at the school. Very good for the first 85% of the book but the ending seemed very anticlimactic and rushed.
