INSTANT USA TODAY BESTSELLER "Witty and macabre."--Caroline Kepnes "Slick and chilling."--Megan Miranda "A perfect summer book."--NPR USA Today bestselling author Samantha Downing is back with her latest sneaky thriller set at a prestigious private school--complete with interfering parents, overeager students, and one teacher who just wants to teach them all a lesson... Teddy Crutcher has won Teacher of the Year at the prestigious Belmont Academy, home to the best and brightest. He says his wife couldn't be more proud--though no one has seen her in a while. Teddy really can't be bothered with a few mysterious deaths on campus that're looking more and more like murder or the student digging a little too deep into Teddy's personal life. His main focus is pushing these kids to their full academic potential. All he wants is for his colleagues--and the endlessly meddlesome parents--to stay out of his way. If not, well, they'll get what they deserve. It's really too bad that sometimes excellence can come at such a high cost.
