White Rabbit; Caleb Roehrig

White RabbitWhite Rabbit by Caleb Roehrig
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If you're of a certain age, this can only bring up Jefferson Airplane as your earworm du jour... Sadly the book doesn't really capitalize on that (although there are drugs involved!). Instead we get an improbable one-night-in-the-life adventure for exes Sebastian and Rufus, trying to determine if Rufus's half-sister did kill Fox or if someone else did. The fact that Rufus is one of those untouchables in the town and that the people needing to be queried are the popular crowd (who, duh, bullied Rufus) won't make things easier. There are a great number of gaps here, and the mystery of Who Killed Fox is not just implausible but also feels like the author rolled dice to figure out the next part each time it came along. More careful plotting would have helped.
