Child’s Play

Surrounded by dense, dark woodland, the Hermitage is an exclusive school for girls.

One balmy summer’s night, Sukie Melville leaves her room and vanishes into the woods.

The following day her body is pulled from the waters of the Menai Strait.

When Superintendent Michael McKenna and his team move in to investigate the death, the school’s charismatic headmistress insists it was suicide – but McKenna isn’t so sure.

‘A complex, intelligent, absorbing story…Unusually for a detective story, it is the characterisation and the writing, even more than the plot, that hold the attention’ – Guardian
