The tale of middle aged business man in England thrown into the mystery of a murdered local girl and the strange goings on at the school where he has been asked to join the governing body. I liked the way this author takes his time with the storyline. He shows a lot of life experience in his writing . The main character, Jack, the owner of a farm machinery business is well developed, and has real human faults as well as positive attributes. This novel is not a thriller, but more of a dissection of a set of crimes occurring in the town where Jack and his wife reside. The interaction between characters, the psychological analysis, and the portrayal of the gray zones rather than simply the black and white are all qualities found in this work. I would recommend it without reservation. Some may find it not exciting enough, but it did make me think, and I did not lose interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
