Sherlock Holmes may not have been a journalist, but that doesn't stop high school senior Kennedy Carter from embracing his methods. With her sights set on becoming an investigative reporter, Kennedy lives by the famous detective's rules: observe the obvious, eliminate the impossible, and avoid romantic entanglements at all costs.
Kennedy has her heart set on winning the $10,000 Excellence in Emerging Journalism award so she can finally escape her small town and see the world with her very own kind-hearted Watson-best friend and school photographer Ravi Burman.
But research into a local urban legend and a murder investigation she can't resist are threatening to derail her plans. To find the killer preying on her graduating class, she and Ravi team up to investigate the deaths and work to uncover the story of a lifetime-if it doesn't cost them their lives first.
