Seventeen-year-old wunderkind Robin Beauvais is a teen dream. She’s earned a scholarship at one of the most prestigious prep schools in the nation. She’s a world-class biathlete. She’s a brilliant hacker and YouTube personality interviewing the rich and famous about tech. In fact, Robin’s just won a trip to Davos, Switzerland, to give a presentation at the World Economic Forum.
While in Davos, billionaires start dropping like golden flies. Robin gets caught up in the investigation after being in the wrong place at the wrong time on more than one occasion. In the midst of global economic giants, celebrities and hangers-on, Robin has to use all of her skills and faculties to make sure she doesn’t end up becoming a permanent guest of the Swiss government . . . in jail.
As the Swiss Inspector working the case narrows down suspects, Robin is also narrowing down her list: a list of powerful men with terrible secrets and hideous lies . . . lies that Robin plans to get to the bottom of once and for all. And as Robin makes her list and checks it twice, the bodies continue to pile up.
If Robin were capable of empathy, she might feel sorry for the dead. If Robin were capable of feeling sorrow, she might fear the consequences. And if Robin were capable of fearing the consequences, she might not be a teen serial killer.
Davos is an opportunity to die for . . . and Robin’s out to make sure at least a few people do.
A combination of Dexter and Gossip Girl and Kill Bill, dEATH in dAVOS brings us a teen female antihero for our times. As Robin herself says, “When it comes to class warfare, as far as I’m concerned, there’s far too much class and not enough warfare.”
