"Just finished reading this wonderfully dark, twisty and compelling thriller set in a prestigious private school. I raced through it, desperate to know how it would end" --B.A. Paris
A slick and chilling thriller, leading readers on a dark, sinuous journey through the halls of Belmont Academy--the type of place where you're never sure who to trust, or who to fear.--Megan Miranda
"Dark, sly and delicious...totally original--and totally compelling."--
JP Delaney "
I'm a huge fan of Samantha Downing."--Sarah Pekkanen
USA Today bestselling author Samantha Downing is back with her latest sneaky thriller set at a prestigious private school--complete with interfering parents, overeager students, and one teacher who just wants to teach them all a lesson...
Teddy Crutcher has won Teacher of the Year at the esteemed Belmont Academy, home to the best and brightest.
He says his wife couldn't be more proud--though no one has seen her in a while.
Teddy really can't be bothered with the death of a school parent that's looking more and more like murder
or the student digging a little too deep into Teddy's personal life. His main focus is on pushing these kids to their full academic potential.
All he wants is for his colleagues--and the endlessly meddlesome parents--to stay out of his way.
It's really too bad that sometimes excellence can come at such a high cost.
