A (Very) Public School Murder Excellence by the Sea is the strap line in Stormhaven Towers publicity. But when, at the end of the summer term, the hard-drinking, hard-smoking new Headmaster, Jamie King, is found dead at the bottom of the towns famous white cliffs, this excellence comes under savage scrutiny. Suicide is assumed at first; King wouldnt be the first tormented soul to hit those unforgiving rocks. But unanswered questions remain. Forensics find no phone by the body and the head always had his mobile with him: I wouldnt want to be out when Eton ring! he used to joke. Then theres a second death at the school. With the pursuit of excellence exchanged for the pursuit of a killer whos both clever and efficient, the dark corridors of Stormhaven Towers become an education in fear. Who will be next? Leading the investigation is the attractive and ambitious Detective Inspector Tamsin Shah, accompanied by Abbot Peter, recently retired from the deserts of Middle Egypt. Known locally as the odd couple, theyve worked on cases together before. Its surprising, though, that the Abbot should wish to become involved again. The ruthless Shah brings danger to his seaside door; and through events at Stormhaven Towers, will do so again.
