Suicide Peak: The Ultimate Struggle For Survival
An English teacher and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader finds herself being stalked by the huge leader of a brutal girl gang. It is an ultimate struggle for survival to the very end.
Debbie Preston, a 28 year-old former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, leaves Dallas to start a job as a junior English teacher at Madison High School in Perryville, Ohio, a small farm community about a half hour west of Columbus. Meanwhile, as summer winds down and the new school year begins, four girls and three women have died near the bluffs at the old community park in Perryville. The latest victim is a 27-year old biker chick/exotic dancer who was last seen making a drug deal at Rowdy Bob's, a local hangout for teens. Debbie is already apprehensive enough about returning to a teaching career after a three-year absence. But that's the least of her troubles. After flunking a key member of The Fiends, a violent girl gang, she soon finds herself being stalked by not only the girl she failed but also Alice Holmes, a hulking teen who is both known and feared at Madison High for her brutality. Alice soon grows to despise the English teacher as Debbie starts spying on her and interfering with her plans and the turf war going on between the biker chicks and The Fiends. Women and girls are dying. But are most of the deaths really suicides? The police seem to think so . . . but Debbie has her doubts about the latest rash of deaths. Debbie's snooping eventually goes too far and Alice starts planning on how to get her out of the way. Can Debbie outwit the girl and avoid becoming a statistic herself? Will her martial arts training help her as she finds herself in a ruthless struggle for survival at the hands of Alice and The Fiends? Find out in this terrifying thriller which will keep you turning the pages to the very end.
