Summary

Summary

Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands is caught off guard one night in 1933 by a phone call from a distressed boy named Jackie Drummond, who just might be the illegitimate son Joe never knew he had. Jackie is in trouble at his Sussex boarding school, where a teacher has been murdered. When Joe gets himself assigned to the investigation, he learns the boarding school case is more complicated than it appears: A frightening number of boys, all from wealthy families, have gone missing over the school’s history, and by some coincidence none of the families have followed up on their sons’ whereabouts.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of Cleverly’s very cleverest puzzles…Clevery is a terrific writer, and she’s also wonderful at setting a scene…She supplies the glamour as well as the grime, and she’s one of the most adept puzzle-plot-makers now working. The clues are all there. But you won’t guess who it is until she gives you the final word.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“Intricate, erudite, and witty…Cleverly is a terrific plotter, and her prose highlights a keen sense of place, character, and dialogue…Fans of P. D. James, take note: Here’s a worthy colleague.” Seattle Times
“Cleverly has perfect pitch for period and place, whether the hero is unearthing evil in India, England, or France.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“In this puzzling, haunting mystery…narrator Simon Prebble is charming yet stern. His British accent is perfect for this brooding tale. Prebble’s character interpretations are subtle, yet accurate and believable; his acting chops and colorful pallet of tones and voices are on display from the get-go.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Suspenseful…makes the most of its intriguing setup…The surprisingly horrific truth behind the murder helps to make this one of the better recent installments.” Publishers Weekly
“Cleverly neatly captures the style and feeling of the period between the world wars and provides plenty of mystery, suspense, and danger.” Kirkus Reviews
