Publisher's Weekly Review

Overkill: A Maggie Ryan Mystery, second in Susan McBride's (And Then She Was Gone) series, lands Detective Ryan in the middle of another murder mystery this time it's a school bus shooting, and the victim is a young girl. The victim's tentative mother, who has put a restraining order on her husband and taken up with a belligerent new boyfriend, seems to be keeping information from the police, maybe to protect her daughter's killer.

Library Journal Review

In this sequel to And Then She Was Gone, former Dallas policewoman Maggie Ryan finds rural Litchfield to be more disturbing than she bargained for when someone charges aboard a special education bus and kills a teenaged female student. Maggie's investigation reveals that the victim came from a potentially volatile family situation: parents separated, father unemployed, mother with a rich and powerful boyfriend. So while the news media have a field day, Maggie tries to corner a suspect. Mounting tension, slick prose, and a puzzling motive move this right along. For most libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
