Susan Israel in her new book, “student bodies book coverStudent Bodies” Book Two in the Delilah Price Mystery published by The Story Plant gives us another adventure with Delilah Price.

From the back cover:  Delilah Price is still dealing with the consequences of her recent abduction, but she needs to keep her life on track. In order to survive as an artist in New York City, she has started working as a substitute teacher, which leaves her navigating between two worlds that are foreign to her – students and educators.

Detective Patrick Quick has taken up a big place in Delilah’s life. That is, when he isn’t consumed by a case. And right now the case that is taking Quick away from Delilah involves a serial rapist and is striking very close to home.
On her way to her first day of work, Delilah witnesses a young girl falling in front of a subway train – or was she pushed? The victim turns out to have been a student at the middle school where Delilah has been assigned to teach and the teacher she is subbing for is a missing person herself. As Delilah gets to know her students and befriends a teacher on staff, she realizes that many have been hiding dark secrets that suggest abuse and worse. And when yet another girl who has hinted strongly that she was abused is a no-show to class, Delilah stops counting on police help and follows leads on her own. Putting a dangerous predator on her trail.
The dramatic follow-up to Susan Israel’s debut suspense novel, Over My Live Body, Student Bodies is a novel rippling with tension and twists.

This book would make a terrific “Movie-Of-The-Week” it has all the right ingredients. The only problem I see is that if it is filmed as written it would have to be rated “R” Outside of that let me tell you in advance this is a fast-paced, very exciting story. Go to the bathroom, take the phone off the hook and make yourself a bowl of popcorn. You are not going to want to be interrupted while reading this book. Start early as this is definitely an intriguing story that will have you muttering “oh, no” as you are reading as fast as you can to get to the next page. For interesting plot and edge-of-your seat, nail-biting suspense, “Student Bodies” is definitely the book for you.
