Publisher's Summary

When a burned body is found in a disused signal box, suspicion falls on lonely teenager Gabriel Webb. There's no doubt he was at the scene of the crime, but does he really deserve what awaits him in prison?

DS Imogen Grey is certain there's more to the case than meets the eye. But while she struggles to convince those around her of the truth, her partner, DS Adrian Miles, is distracted by his own demons.

When a brutal double murder is reported, their investigation is stopped in its tracks. Is the body in the box even who they thought it was? The duo realise Gabriel might have been locked up for a crime he didn't commit. But with enemies watching Gabriel's every move, they may be too late.

Miles and Grey are back in the thrilling new novel from best-selling author Katerina Diamond, perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and M. J. Arlidge.

Critic Reviews

"A terrific story, originally told. All hail the new Queen of Crime!" (Heat)
"A web of a plot that twists and turns and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. This formidable debut is a page-turner, but don't read it before bed if you're easily spooked!" (The Sun)

Not the best...sorry 😞

Having read the first two books and absolutely loving the first and liking the second, im left a little disappointed with this particular installment. I found the storyline rather dull and a little underwhelming. Large parts of the story seemed a bit pointless and gave you a sense that they were leading somewhere, when actually it simply fizzled out. Overall a rather disappointing third addition, which is a huge shame as "The Teacher" is one of my all time faves.

Disappointing

Unfortunately not a patch on her earlier two books. Maybe trying to rush writing to get books out quickly. Also, I wish the narrator wouldn’t try accents. It doesn’t work. Lovely voice, but please park the accents.

Not my favourite.

I was a bit disappointed. The writing was okay but there was a lot of repetition and over explaining. I preferred the first two books by far.
