Publisher's Summary

Who hanged the headmaster in the playground on the night of the school Hallowe'en party? Almost everyone in Heppleburn either hated or feared the viper-tongued Harold Medburn.

Inspector Ramsay is convinced it was the headmaster's enigmatic wife, but Jack Robson, school governor and caretaker, is determined to prove her innocence. With the help of his restless, enthusiastic daughter, Patty, Jack digs into the secrets of Heppleburn and uncovers a cesspit - of lies, adultery, blackmail and madness.

    "I didn't think I would like this book, but it surprised me."

    I enjoyed this book, it took me a long time to get into it and it was hard to keep track of all the characters but it was worth persisting. It's a good story with a number of twists and turns in the plot and interesting characters. I don't think it's as good as her other books, but I would recommend it.

    "Not the best Ann Cleeves"

    Disappointing is the word to describe this book. Very one dimensional characters leaves you not caring about any of the group of characters.

    "Is this the same Ann Cleeves?"

    Can't believe this was written by the same person who writes Vera Stanhope and the Shetland books.
    Very disappointing
