    Her father buys her a big, roomy apartment with several bedrooms and then picks her roommates for her.  Eva likes them all.  There are three boys and one girl.  Everything is going along swimmingly when the girl comes home from school and finds Eva dead on the floor in the living room by the fireplace.  Who did it?  The answer to that is complicated.

    Witness Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 9th.

    It seems like this should be a fairly easy case to solve because the door was shut and locked when the other girl came home.  No one was home besides her, but it must have been one of the boys since she had been hit on the head and then strangled and they were the only ones that had keys.  It gets more complicated when you find out she's been sleeping with them all...

    They choose a killer and jail him.  The young woman who roomed with them doesn't believe it could be him.  She's even brave enough to talk to her father's boss about it.  Having a policeman for a father has honed her intuitions and she knows how the system works.  She doesn't believe Colin could do it.

    When other women start dying in a similar manner, they don't know if it's a copycat or the real murderer... 

    There's a surprise ending that made me sit up straight and pay attention.  You never know just who could be a killer...
