In this fourth instalment of the Private series, the police finally catch the murderer of Reed's ex-boyfriend -- only problem is that it's her new boyfriend!
Josh, Reed's friend and more recently, more-than-friend, has been arrested for killing Thomas Pearson, Reed's ex-boyfriend. Reed finds comfort in her friends, the girls of Billings hall. But these girls have more secrets than the CIA and they aren't letting go of their hold on Reed. Because once you're a Billings Girl, you remain a Billings Girl. Forever.
Now everyone is back to worrying about the regular stuff, like how to sneak to the boys' dorms at night, whether two-ply cashmere is warm enough for autumn, and whether to fly to London or Barcelona for the holidays... Everyone except for Reed!
Reed is convinced that Josh is innocent, which means the killer is still out there. Now it's up to Reed to uncover the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more secrets she unearths and the closer she gets to the confession that will change everything... if she's alive to hear it.
