You think you know who to trust? You think you know the difference between good and evil? You're wrong....
A lesson you will never forget.
The body of the head teacher of an exclusive Devon school is found hanging from the rafters in the assembly hall. Hours earlier he'd received a package, and only he could understand the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end.
As Exeter suffers a rising count of gruesome deaths, troubled DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles must solve the case and make their city safe again. But as they're drawn into a network of corruption, lies and exploitation, every step brings them closer to grim secrets hidden at the heart of their community. And once they learn what's motivating this killer, will they truly want to stop him?
Smart. Gripping. Gruesome. This is a psychological crime thriller in a class of its own.
Warning: most definitely not for the faint hearted!

I didn't care much for this book. A bit too gratuitously gory, I'm not particularly faint hearted but the graphic scenes of violence were not backed up by characters or plot.
loved it great story which had me gripped until the end. this is my first by this author and I'm just off to the kindle store to find out if Katerina diamond has written any more. the narrative was so Amazing I didn't feel like I was listening but reading myself as I was so pulled into this work . he has a very gentle voice that i loved listening to. great twist at the end :)
I've struggled recently to find an ebook that has not followed the usual predictable formula. The Teacher is a crime thriller, a little reminiscent of Mo Hayder but less graphic. Good plot line and good characterisation.
for this to finish! not my cup of tea at all. laboured and a little long winded for me. I stayed til the end as half way through it gained some momentum and I wanted to give a true review. others enjoyed this I know but for me a little boring and farfetched. there is alot of gore and violence in it too.
Too much blood and guts and graphic horror killings - not at all enjoyable
There wasn't one
A lot of different characters to keep up with, none of them particularly likeable.
I can't say I was particularly gripped throughout, but I did listen until the end. A slightly unbelievable story, I didn't buy it in the end. I also wasn't really keen on the Narrator, I found her storytelling a little uninteresting and her character voices were all the same, plus some mispronunciation of some words.
Without doubt the worst bit of writing I have listened to in ages. I am surprised that there are good reviews - the book is a poorly constructed chain of gratuitous events of no literary value whatsoever.
I enjoyed this book, just as much second time around, having forgotten to review it the first time! Would translate well to TV!
Lots of leads & good characters. A little suspension of disbelief needed!
Not sure about summary shown above!!
Some reviewers have noted it's a bit too graphic, I say it could have been more so. This isn't to knock the book, it's just tamer than what I was expecting. Even so, it's a fast paced and exciting read from start to finish, and very well narrated. Just the way I like them!
