'Wonderfully dark and twisty. I raced through it, desperate to know how it would end' BA Paris
Teddy Crutcher has won Teacher of the Year at the prestigious Belmont Academy. Everyone thinks he's brilliant. Only you know the truth.
They all smile when he tells us his wife couldn't be more proud - though if they stopped to think, they would realise no-one has seen her in a while.
They're impressed when he doesn't let anything distract him - even the tragic death of a school parent. Even when the whispers start, saying it was murder.
You're sure Teddy is hiding something about what happened that day. You're sure you can prove it.
You just didn't stop to think that when it comes to catching a killer, there's no place more dangerous than just one step behind...

Dark, sly and delicious...totally original - and totally compelling
I'm a huge fan of Samantha Downing, who is masterful at creating diabolical characters and deliciously chilling plots. An absolutely terrific book!
Samantha Downing serves up another cast of deliciously mendacious characters in an exclusive private school setting, where the deadly action drives a brilliantly tense, taut and twisty plot. I may never look at my coffee in the same way again
Downing's spare prose packs a wallop as she deftly ratchets up the suspense with every hairpin turn of this lean, mean, surprising, and utterly propulsive thriller
So dark and twisted, so deliciously evil, it'll not only make you frantically turn those pages to find out who's targeting whom, but the wry sense of humor will have you laughing out loud, too. Another phenomenal wild-ride of a read from one of the crime-writing community's most talent authors. Bet you'll never look at high school the same way again
