At Ellingham Academy, three people are now dead. One, a victim of either a prank gone wrong or a murder. Another, dead by misadventure. And now, an accident in Burlington has claimed another life. Stevie Bell knows who Truly Devious is -- or thinks she does. But David disappeared of his own free will and is up to something. The missing Alice Ellingham and the missing David Eastman. Somewhere in this place of riddles and puzzles there must be answers. When another accident occurs as a massive storm heads toward Vermont, Ellingham Academy is evacuated. It is time for Stevie to do something stupid -- like stay on the mountain and face the storm -- and a murderer.
