Waterstones Says

A gripping whodunit from the bestselling author of the Chocolat series, A Narrow Door sees St Oswald's Grammar School gain its first-ever female head teacher who’s determined not to let anything stand in her way – not even a body.

Now I'm in charge, the gates are my gates. The rules are my rules.

It's an incendiary moment for St Oswald's school. For the first time in its history, a headmistress is in power, the gates opening to girls.

Rebecca Buckfast has spilled blood to reach this position. Barely forty, she is just starting to reap the harvest of her ambition. As the new regime takes on the old guard, the ground shifts. And with it, the remains of a body are discovered.

But Rebecca is here to make her mark. She'll bury the past so deep it will evade even her own memory, just like she has done before. After all...

You can't keep a good woman down.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Joanne Harris' assured hand leads you into a psychological maze, deeper and deeper into a dark world of emotional complexity and betrayal, where twist follows twist and nothing is what it seems. A masterful narrative voice, and a compulsive thriller from one of our greatest writers. I absolutely loved it' - Alex Michaelides

“Brilliantly constructed intrigue”

Told through two perspectives - Rebecca Buckfast, the new head teacher, and Mr Straightly, an old-school Latin teacher - this is a tightly plotted school-based thriller that gripped me from the first pages to the... More
