The Goode School, located in a small Virginia town, is the prep school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential. Enter Ash Carlisle, a privileged British girl who recently lost her parents in a double suicide. Ash is trying to remain incognito as she starts her new life at the school while trying to forget the tragedies of her past. But all is not what it seems. Rumors about Ash abound. Beneath the respectable surface of the school bubbles a cauldron of lies and deceit. Then a student dies in a fall from the bell tower, and the whispers begin, saying that Ash did it. Another student death, an obvious murder, is the catalyst that brings everything to a head, exposing all the lies and peeling away the layers of deceit.
VERDICT Ellison (Tear Me Apart) has created a complex, convoluted plot that mystery fans will savor.
