"When Maurice Tyson, housemaster at a top boys' boarding school in Ireland, is found with his throat slit, Superintendent Denis Lennon and Sergeant Molly Power of the Irish Police Force struggle to uncover any probable motive for the brutal killing. Was it revenge? A kidnap attempt by terrorists gone badly wrong? Or is there a connection to a former student who killed himself barely a year ago?" "A boy mysteriously disappears and the hunt is on for his abductors. But when another body is found, the situation gets even darker. Someone out there has a terrible secret, and will stop at nothing to keep it hidden."--BOOK JACKET.
