Joe Campion is the kind of teacher any child would want for their class. He's also the kind of teacher who never turns down a drink, a smoke or a lay.
When Joe finds out some of his students are suffering abuse, he doesn't trust the system to take care of it. His impulsive nature, dedication to his pupils and love of women lead him on a long, strange and bloody trip.

This is super. Really super. It outlines the stresses upon a young male teacher and the ways he tries (and fails) to cope with them. It's set in London in 1999, mainly in Hampstead and Camden Town. There's murder and sex, so if you find these things difficult, you should avoid it. I'd recommend it highly.
