The Interrogation of Gabriel James by Charlie Price

Two police detectives are interrogating a high schooler, cross country runner a few days after he was taken to the hospital having been beaten by a bat wielding drug dealer. Gabe was found at the scene of a double homicide. One of the victims is the younger brother of the girl he had been almost stalking in hopes of becoming her boyfriend. The other is a drug dealer, probably also responsible for the beating of a homeless manwho Gabe considers a friend. Readers learn all the action leading up to the beating and shootings through the interrogation. There are also some ugly personal family secrets that come out. And, at least one of the bad guys was doing hate crimes and animal cruelty as well. This is a short book, fast read and I don't think especially well done or mysterious but readers who are into the tv shows Criminal Minds and CSI may well enjoy it. JDW
