Overview

When a young student drowns in a campus pond at a prestigious New England boarding school, tough businesswoman Thea Kozak faces what may be her most tragic mystery yet. The death rocks the private school world, and Thea is called in for crisis management and to reevaluate the school’s rather careless procedures for keeping track of students. But when Thea discovers that the young victim was pregnant, cooperation vanishes. Suddenly, no one will talk to her. Undaunted, Thea keeps digging, finding, beneath the school’s genteel veneer, a host of nasty secrets. Suddenly, too many people want her gone so their secrets can be kept, and under one of those rocks she’s overturned, there’s a killer who doesn’t want to be found.

"Kate Flora does what all great writers do: she takes you inside unfamiliar territory and makes you feel right at home." --Michael Connelly, bestselling author of Blood Work
"Thea Kozak is a terrific, in-your-face, stand-up gal in the moving and compelling story of grown-ups who fail the students in their care. Stephanie Plum and Thea Kozak would have a lot to say to each other." --Janet Evanovich
