Raleigh's Prep - Book The First in the Topher Trilogy
James Noll, Noll
After a terrible prank gone wrong, three young men, Topher, Michael, and Kenneth find themselves at Raleigh's Prep—a "Juvenile Detention Center for the Delinquent Children of the Fantastically Rich." Basically, juvie for rich kids. The boys think they're going to serve out their time, finish their education, but then, three weeks into their term, they find a mangled body on the practice fields. More bodies follow. With the help of their friends, Marvin Grimm, I Dennis, and the enigmatic Warren Crews, they decide to investigate—inadvertently unleashing the horror that lurks in the woods that surrounds the campus.
A mixture of horror and humor, Raleigh's Prep "is witty and interesting" with "interesting characters, quite a lot of death and gore and some twists and turns." (Amazon Reviewers)
