A brilliantly executed, clever thriller, this book is also a mainstream look at love, loyalty, duty, transgression and identity.
Harris conjures up two powerful characters, an old-school Latin school master that I fell in love with and the killer who is brave, bright, and ruthless.
But perhaps the most impressive character in the book is the school that consumes both master and murderer.
Technically, Harris is masterful: two points of view and regular flashbacks managed with ease, crisp clear language and a truly ingenious plot
I heartily recommend it. I look forward to reading the rest of her novels.
