Book Review - The Teacher

by Katerina Diamond (AVON) ISBN: 978-0-00-818046-1 

This psychological crime thriller is Katerina Diamond's first novel. 

Secrets kept closely guarded by an elite few come to light when a student becomes the teacher. Unexpectedly the tables turn and the prey becomes the hunter. One by one dirty secrets are revealed no matter how tight the lid is kept on the box to conceal the contents from the world. 

Not even a fire could destroy every last shred of evidence. Two seemingly misfit detectives, each with their own shame and flaws, follow what would appear to be unrelated clues. They manage to match link after link and unravel a web so tightly spun it’s hard to know who to trust as connections seem to go way up the ranks. They reveal years of horrors. Scars etched deep into the body, mind and soul of the innocent. 

The law is black and white. Murder is punishable, particularly such heinous acts of gruesome mutilation of fellow human beings. Well, it seems there is a fine line between punishing people who deserve it, in the same manner they tortured others, and outright murder for pleasure.
