A lesson you’ll never forget

Not for the faint-hearted

In the assembly hall of an exclusive Devon school the body of  the head teacher is found hanging from the rafters. Hours earlier he’d received a package.  Only he could understand the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end. As Exeter is visited by a rising count of gruesome deaths,  DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles must solve the case and make their city safe again.

They’re drawn into a network of corruption, lies and exploitation and every step brings them closer to grim secrets hidden at the heart of their city.

But once they learn what’s motivating this killer, will they truly want to stop him?

My review

Read it if you dare!

Teacher Jeffery Stone returned to his office and found the parcel on his desk. Something about the size and weight of the gift was familiar to him. It was an old German book. He knew what it ment. It had been twenty years since he had given it as a gift to someone. The book was a surprise, but not the unspoken message it’s very arrival conveyed. It ment the end. Jeffery kept something on his laptop. Folders with different year group and different names. He wasn’t one of these idiots who kept the evidence on his hard drive. He was smarter than that. What did Headmaster Mr Stone exactly keep on his laptop that he could only view when he was alone in the school? Someone wants the headmaster Jeffery Stone dead to make it look like suicide, but why? They found Mr Stone hanging in the atrium with by rope.  Wow what a first novel.

You think you know who to trust? You think you know the difference between good and evil? You’re wrong.


This is a psychological crime thriller in a class of its own.
