a particularly dark Demarkian mystery. It's beautifully plotted and written as always, but a good deal of critique of education is added to the mix.

This was actually one of my favorites in the series. Several real personalities, i.e., characters much more defined than in some of her books (and I do love these books).

Suspicion falls on an unstable prep school student who finds his roommate (rumored to have been having an affair with the headmaster's wife) hanged in their room. The suspect's famous mom hires retired FBI agent Demarkian (Conspiracy Theory) to look into the matter. The latest in a solid series

Windsor Academy ranks as one of the best New England prep schools money can buy, but it still has trouble aplenty. And when freshman Mark DeAvecca looks out a window and sees a body across the campus, he wonders if hes hallucinatingespecially when no corpse is found. Since everyone thinks that mark is a druggie, they all ignore himuntil he returns to his dorm room to discover his roommate dead, hanged by the neck from the ceiling. Desperate, Mark calls his mothers friend George Demarkian, former FBI agent and the one person Mark knows will listen. Demarkian is world-weary and ready to retire from his investigative career, yet he cant turn down a plea from a scared kid. And it doesnt take long before Gregor knows something is very wrong at Windsor Academy something like manipulation, dirty tricks and murder.
