1930's and something strange is going on in Maxstead Court School: secrets abound, the French teacher(s) disappear (later one of their bodies is found), a student is found locked in a basement room, the Matron is seen arguing w/ a man & slapping him hard, & the art teacher is shoved into the lake...

How it all ties in comes to a satisfying conclusion...

I did not particularly like the characters, and it is important for me to do so, I need to connect w/ someone. Everyone seemed cold, efficient, & business like and one never got to know any of them.

There was a lot of explanation I skipped.... I'm finding that I like dialog better than descriptive narrative.

I did like the story & the back story.....

I have been aware of Marjorie Eccles for many years and I have added her work to the Library's collection, but this is the first time I have ever read one of her books... I might attempt to read another of her earlier books. ( )
