From USA Today best-selling Author, C. L. Stone, listen to Hoax, the fifth book in The Academy Scarab Beetle Series.
Someone tried to kill Kayli Winchester. That someone is going to pay.
After going overboard and nearly drowning, Kayli regroups and joins Axel, Corey, Brandon, Marc, and Raven back on board the Lucienda. This time, she's brought reinforcements. Liam and Henry join the team in an all-out hunt for a killer. It can't be too hard; there's only so many places to hide on a cruise ship. But the number of suspects is climbing.
Tensions are high, and everyone is on alert, but along the way, there's way too many distractions - very hot distractions. Kayli's done hiding her feelings. She's showing her hand, come what may. She's never held back before she met this team - why start now?
But when one of their team members disappears, all clues point to mutiny. Is the team going to fracture because of her? Did someone throw her overboard because of jealousy?
Kayli refuses to believe it, but she'll have to provide proof before the murderer finds out she's still alive and comes back to complete the job.
