Notes From Your Bookseller

Frieda McFadden knows how to captivate a readership, and she does it again with this breakneck thriller complete with a delicious #MeToo twist. With the help of two dynamic female protagonists, this is a mystery that is a sheer joy to solve.

Lesson #1: Trust no one.

Eve has a good life. She wakes up each day, kisses her husband Nate, and heads off to teach math at the local high school. All is as it should be. Except...

Last year, Caseham High was rocked by a scandal involving a student-teacher affair, with one student, Addie, at its center. But Eve knows there is far more to these ugly rumors than meets the eye.

Addie can't be trusted. She lies. She hurts people. She destroys lives. At least, that's what everyone says.

But nobody knows the real Addie. Nobody knows the secrets that could destroy her. And Addie will do anything to keep it quiet...


From the New York Times bestselling author Freida McFadden comes a chilling story of twisted secrets and long-awaited revenge.

★ 12/04/2023

At the start of the superb latest from McFadden (The Coworker), frumpy math teacher Eve Bennett is preparing for a new year at Caseham High School with her handsome husband and fellow teacher, Nate. Eve is dismayed to learn that Addie Severson, a student who allegedly had an affair with math teacher Art Tuttle (who’s since resigned) last year, has been assigned to one of her classes. While Addie insists nothing inappropriate happened with Tuttle, her classmates bully her about the rumors, and the school’s staff remain split on whether to believe her. As the school year progresses, Addie finds refuge from the constant scrutiny in Nate’s class, developing a bond with him over their mutual love of poetry. One night, after hosting a dinner party, Eve catches Addie lurking in the bushes near her and Nate’s home. Nate’s passive response to the discovery irks Eve and leads her to suspect his relationship with Addie might be edging into illicit territory. As Eve investigates, McFadden rolls out a series of jaw-dropping twists that recast the power dynamic between her central trio over and over again. The frequent rug-pulling will thrill readers who’ve initially pinned the story as run-of-the-mill domestic suspense. This rivets. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Feb.)

From the Publisher

"Secrets are everywhere in this sparkling narrative that moves like a Japanese bullet train, offering plenty of surprises along the way." — First Clue

"The superb latest from McFadden...frequent rug-pulling will thrill readers who’ve initially pinned the story as run-of-the-mill domestic suspense. [The Teacher] rivets." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Told from the alternating viewpoints of Eve and Addie, this dark page-turner from McFadden (“The Housemaid” series) has an unexpected, brilliantly executed twist at the end. It’s a must-read for fans of psychological thrillers." — Library Journal, starred review

"McFadden piles on the secrets and lies, slowly doling out the truth until the explosive conclusion, and then, once the dust has settled, she reveals one more bombshell that changes everything. Give this to fans of Lisa Jewell and Joy Fielding." — Booklist

"The Teacher is a foreboding psychological thriller with cleverly executed twists and turns contrived to keep readers and characters off-kilter and reeling from beginning to end. Author Freida McFadden has honed her craft to near perfection, especially when it comes to those last minute, final page shockers no one sees coming. In that aspect, The Teacher is the crème de la crème of psychological thrillers – a masterpiece of illusions with unreliable characters and scandalous over the top twists.
" — Mystery and Suspense Magazine

On the surface, high school math teacher Eve Bennett is the envy of women everywhere. She has a career she loves, a beautiful home, and a gorgeous, kind, and mild-mannered husband, Nate, who teaches English at her school. However, with a growing emotional distance and a lack of affection from Nate, Eve feels unfulfilled. Even adding to the designer shoe collection she attempts to hide from her husband doesn't help her dissatisfaction. When the school year begins and troubled teen Addie Severson is in both Nate's and Eve's classes, the tension between the couple intensifies. Addie had been in the middle of a scandal that ruined the career of a beloved teacher. While Nate insists she deserves a second chance, Eve feels Addie can't be trusted. Although rumors about the scandal circulate wildly, nobody knows what really happened, and vulnerable Addie is determined to keep it that way. In fact, she might do just anything to keep things quiet. VERDICT Told from the alternating viewpoints of Eve and Addie, this dark page-turner from McFadden ("The Housemaid" series) has an unexpected, brilliantly executed twist at the end. It's a must-read for fans of psychological thrillers.—Lucinda Ward
