Summary

The gripping new novel from Sunday Times best-selling author Michele Campbell.

Because murderers are never who you expect. She was the quiet one...but is she guilty? For twin sisters Rose and Bel, enrolling at the prestigious new boarding school should have been a fresh start. But with its sinister rituals and traditions, Odell soon brings out a deadly rivalry between the sisters. For Sarah and husband Heath, the chance to teach at Odell seems like the best thing that ever happened to their small family - a chance to rise through the ranks and put the past behind them. Until one dark night ends in murder. But who’s guilty and who’s telling the truth? And who’s been in on it all along..?

Frustrating

I had to force myself through this book. For me it became more and more unbelievable that some of the characters could have so little backbone. Regardless of how much proof was presented to them they continued to doubt themselves. Frustrating and drawn out story.
