The mysterious death of a schoolgirl at an elite boarding school sets off a desperate hunt for the truth
At St. Agnes, a prestigious all-girls boarding school in the Midlands of South Africa, one of its most popular students is found dead at the bottom of the old mill. Fearful of the scandal it might cause, the school is quick to declare that young Lexi Summerveld drunkenly slipped and fell to her death in a tragic accident.
But drama teacher Kate Ballard doesn’t believe it. On the night of her death, an upset Lexi had been frantically trying to contact her about something, and Kate had ignored her. Now wracked with guilt, Kate attempts to piece together the events of that fateful night. But she must tread carefully, to not expose her own romantic entanglement with the girl: she and her student Lexi had been lovers. If the truth ever got out, it would ruin her.
The more Kate investigates, the more she realizes that she didn’t know Lexi at all. Blackmailer, mistress, rape victim – she was a complicated girl in a dangerous world and had made a lot of enemies in the course of her short life. Kate suspects any one of them could have murdered her.
But what other dark secrets are held within the imposing walls of St. Agnes? And is Lexi’s killer the only one to be exposed?
