Eyewitness to two killings, fourteen-year-old Gabriel James relates the shocking story behind the murders in a police interrogation interspersed with flashbacks. Step by step, this Montana teenager traces his discovery of a link between a troubled classmate's disturbing home life and an outbreak of local crime. In the process, however, Gabriel becomes increasingly confused about his own culpability for the explosive events that have unfolded.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

1
I STOOD AT THE BACK of a small crowd in a bleak cemetery north of the Yellowstone River, the second funeral I had attended this week. A pastor waited at the head of the grave for someone to offer any last remarks. No one did. The deceased’s father stood closest to the coffin, hands cuffed in front of him, long gray hair moving when wind gusted. A deputy sheriff stood beside him, and, farther back, the cuffed man’s daughter stood with my mother, both of them in solemn black dresses that didn’t look like they would ever be worn for anything but a funeral.

Praise for The Interrogation of Gabriel James

Winner of the 2010 Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Fiction

Texas TAYSHAS High School Reading List

 

“As with the finest interrogation dramas, like the movie The Usual Suspects, the final reveal is both satisfying and surprising, but it’s the well-structured and paced buildup that’s most worth relishing.” —Booklist

 

“The author writes intriguing and believable characters…The result is not only suspense but a memorable and believable characterization. Top notch.” —Kirkus Reviews

 

“Gripping . . . A rewarding quick pick for mystery fans.”—BCCB

 

“Price’s taut thriller takes place during the police questioning of high school sophomore Gabe, who has witnessed a murder he might be partly responsible for . . . Tension builds effectively, and the final revelations, including those that involve Gabe’s own family, do not disappoint. The fast pace, dark mood, and well-plotted story line should have readers hooked.” —Publishers Weekly
