    Hi, Maggie, I’m afraid that I can’t discuss the clues for SUSPECT in a public forum because it might provide a spoiler for an unwary reader. In fact, I couldn’t post your question for the same reason. But the key details do come in Jen’s conversations with her grandmother over the course of the book and in the diaries. The clues whisper in the text, but they’ll probably roar now that you know what happened. A bit of flipping through the book could be helpful. Thanks so much for writing! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
