"It certainly seemed like an accident-though a rather bizarre one-when twelve-year-old David Fleming was killed falling into the hold of a ship on a school field trip. His father, John Fleming, came to the school prepared to charge it with negligence, but he wasn't prepared for the icy politeness or the atmosphere of fear the greeted him. With slowly building horror, John Fleming realizes there is something terribly wrong at Marristone Grange. Something the school is determined to hide. If David was alone when he fell, why was he blindfolded And why are there suggestions that the seemingly normal, well-adjusted boy might have committed suicide? Was it murder? Only Jenny, the school nurse, seems to be on Fleming's side, yet even she is torn between her attraction to him and her loyalty to the school. "; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
