Do you believe in ghosts?

Fleeing expulsion and the death of a close friend, Andrew Taylor is sent to spend his final year at the prestigious public school Harrow. It is an eccentric place, a rambling ancient building filled with the sons of the rich and famous, and Andrew feels distinctly out of place

Andrew bears a striking resemblance to Lord Byron, a former pupil of Harrow - and that is when the trouble begins. He senses a malevolent presence, and when a classmate dies, his fears become all too real. Then Andrew discovers some old letters hidden in a bricked-up basement, which hint at a secret history buried in the school's past. But what is the link between these letters and the strange events that are happening at the school now and is he also in danger?
