An Edgar Award-winning novel.

As he draws up his will, Attorney Henry Griswald is haunted by a long-buried secret: the truth behind the event the world knew as the Chatham School Affair, a controversial tragedy that destroyed five lives, shattered a quiet community, and forever scarred the young boy. Layer by layer, Cook paints a portrait of a woman, a school, and a town in which passionate violence seems impossible… and inevitable.


'A good thriller doesn't necessarily require flying fists, bombs and bullets; a sure and measured build-up of tension does just as well, and few are better at the fine art of sure and measured than Thomas H. Cook' Guardian.
'The Go-Between as reworked by Ruth Rendell ... like watching an avalanche in agonizing, exquisite slow-motion' Kirkus.
'The Chatham School Affair will cement this superb writer's position as one of crime fiction's most prodigious talents, a master of the unexpected ending' New York Times Book Review.
