Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands gets a phone call from a distressed boy named Jackie Drummond, who just might be Joe's illegitimate son.

A frightening number of boys, all from wealthy families, have gone missing over the school’s history, but by a strange coincidence none of the families have followed up on their sons' whereabouts.

  1. That's a nice tease, and the book seems interesting too! :)

    It would be great if you could come check out my Teaser Tuesday post.

    Happy reading!


  2. Hmmmm.... I wonder why none of the families followed up on the disappearances? Sounds like a good read.

  3. Both the teaser and the synopsis that you provided make me want to know more about the mysterious disappearances of the boys, and why nobody ever followed up on them! Very curious!

  4. My interest is peaked about this book.

  5. Liking the teaser and certainly the location!

  6. Ooo this sounds like a good one! I love period pieces set in England. I'll have to add this to my tr list now.

    Here's mine.

  7. I've read the first couple in this series, and I keep meaning to get back to it. Thanks for the reminder.

  8. Interesting teaser. And the description makes it sound like I'd enjoy it. I've never heard of this series before.

  9. Now I understand the term 'Teaser!'


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
