15 year old Diana and five of her friends are starting a new school, and they have one mission: find out why strange things have been happening at J.C. Maxwell Boarding School. What Diana did not expect to find was a series of unexplained murders and the staff acting strangely.
Soon, Diana and her friends find themselves at the centre of a dangerous conflict, where everyone is more than what they seem, and no one at J.C. Maxwell is there for the reason they claim to be.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I was 11 years old, a murder was committed in the vicinity of my school. A few days later, while with my group of friends, we discovered evidence that the murder had actually happened on the school ground. We also thought that we found evidence that our school headmaster might have been involved in the crime. The book is inspired by that story.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My inspiration has been the people that were in my life that year, including people we suspected to be the culprits.
Bernard Farage was standing in front of Primrose Cottage. He remembered the first time he laid eyes on it.
It had been the beginning of autumn, and the village
of Gateway Hill had just started to transform itself into a picture-perfect orange-and-yellow garden. Right in the middle
was the beautiful, three-little-pigs-worthy, cute stone cottage
with a thatched roof.
The garden beds were packed tight with plants. At first he
had been puzzled by the informal crowding of the large variety of flowers all around the garden, but then he realised that
the mix of perennial flowers with foliage plants was what had
turned that cottage into the village’s prettiest dwelling.
Except this time he was not getting the usual tingling of
pleasure he got every time he opened that gate. Primrose’s sweet
pink stone path to the wooden door, once so picturesque, was
slowly turning into the path to the executioner.
