Series: Jonathan Meredith

Summary :

Robinson, the most disliked teacher at Meddingon School, was dead. The coroner's verdict was suicide, but Jonathan Meredith had reason to doubt it. The English teacher had been unpopular with all the students, mainly because he was incompetent and unfair. Jonathan's dislike had gone deeper: he had found Robinson's supercilious air and haughty indifference to the feelings of others despicable.

But when Jonathan heard of Robinson's death, he was stunned. For, just before the fatal drowning, Jonathan had seen Robinson on the deck of his houseboat - and the teacher was not alone. He was with Jonathan's special friend and mentor, Charles Hugo - the man whom Jonathan admired more than anyone in the world.

  • "Ostensibly a murder mystery and a school story, the novel becomes more than a conventional investigation of a death. Although the suspenseful episodes and situations are fraught with intensity, the plot is subtly counterbalanced by the psychological, and ultimately the ethical, exploration of the characters."
