Set in West Sussex in a local school Talgarth High, where a renowned Author, R M Holland used to live and the ghost of his wife is purported to haunt there.
Claire Cassidy is an English teacher, tall beautiful and has a daughter, Georgia. Claire’s friend, Ella is found murdered at home and so the mystery begins. There is a second murder and DS Harbinder Kaur investigates, becoming close to the Cassidy family in the process.
There’s a suspicion of witchcraft, hauntings and misdeeds in the school, all done in a very believable way. I loved the way the book reads, with chapter from each of the characters perspective, sometimes of the same conversations or situations, which felt original and really built the characters well. There’s also a little romance thrown in too.
There are twists and turns in this whodunnit and some genuinely creepy and tense moments. It keeps the killers reveal to the end which was a great twist. A great read from Elly Griffiths
I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
