Blood Oath/The Initiation by William Johnstone

Blood Oath
by William W. Johnstone
1999 Pinnacle
Originally as The Initiation 1982 Zebra

In 1973, a secret clique of rich kids gang rape and accidentally kill a thirteen year old girl, then attack her brother and leave him for dead.

Twenty six years later someone is raping and killing the children of the clique.  The crime is investigated by a Sheriff's deputy, a Johnstone standby, who doesn't so much investigate as has hunches and fails to do much to protect the obvious future victims until the killer is revealed.

There's a twist that's ridiculous even for Johnstone that pretty much no reader will swallow, and some not especially graphic sleaziness.  A lesser effort.

I read the 1999 version - I don't know if there were any differences.
