A LESSON YOU WILL NEVER FORGET
The body of the head teacher of an exclusive Devon school is found hanging from the rafters in the assembly hall.
Hours earlier he’d received a package, and only he could understand the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end.
As Exeter suffers a rising count of gruesome deaths, troubled DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles must solve the case and make their city safe again.
But as they’re drawn into a network of corruption, lies and exploitation, every step brings them closer to grim secrets hidden at the heart of their community.
And once they learn what’s motivating this killer, will they truly want to stop him?
SMART. GRIPPING. GRUESOME.
This is a psychological crime thriller in a class of its own.
Warning: Most definitely *not* for the faint-hearted!
This is what Katerina’s publishing team are saying about THE TEACHER!
‘A deftly written, visceral, grisly, instantly engaging, complex and satisfying mystery. It’s led by characters – victims, perpetrators, detectives alike – who leap off the page and get under your skin! It’s chillingly plausible, impossible to anticipate the end and bubbling with dark humour. I think it turns what it means to be a victim right on its head … I urge you to read it immediately!’
Eleanor Dryden, Publishing Director
‘I could not put this book down. The gripping, twisty plot and the unforgettable characters (both good and bad) keep you guessing. I can’t wait to read it again!’
Hannah Welsh, Key Accounts Manager
‘This book will steal your lunch hour, your evenings, your every free minute until you reach the last page. The plot is full of breath-taking twists, the atmosphere is electric, and the murders are terrifying.’
Kate Stephenson, Commissioning Editor
‘This book was truly unique, and I felt some incredibly intense emotions while reading it. There was a moment while reading on the tube when I suddenly there were tears streaming down my face, and I felt a desperate need to talk about it with someone who understood. I genuinely haven’t been so moved by a book in a long, long time; I can only describe it as a physical feeling, it was so strong. The way it played with my expectations was simply incredible, and I remain completely blown away by it!
Helena Sheffield, Digital Marketing Manager
‘From start to finish it had me completely gripped and wanting to know more and more. The writing is pacy and compelling and kept me guessing all the way through. I fell in love with the characters too and it made me question my own moral code!’
Sabah Khan, Publicity Director
