Previously published as LONG TIME WAITING, now fully updated.
The Good Teacher is a pacy, intriguing mix of domestic drama and crime thriller, one of those read in one sitting page turners with engaging characters and a good twisty plot.
Pippa (or Agatha) was a good main protagonist to follow along with and the inserted narrative from a different point of view adds to the atmosphere and keeps you immersed throughout.
I really enjoyed it- a school hiding secrets, a bit of murder and mayhem, a police team that gels well and makes you want to know more about them, all adding up to a fun, compelling read.
