Review: The Teacher by Katerina Diamond



The body of the head teacher of an exclusive Devon school is found hanging from the rafters in the assembly hall.

Hours earlier he’d received a package, and only he could understand the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end.

As Exeter suffers a rising count of gruesome deaths, troubled DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles must solve the case and make their city safe again.

But as they’re drawn into a network of corruption, lies and exploitation, every step brings them closer to grim secrets hidden at the heart of their community.

And once they learn what’s motivating this killer, will they truly want to stop him?

My Thoughts

Have been singing  Don’t Believe the Hype since finishing this. Is a tricky one! A marmite book that you will either love or hate – I am somewhere in the middle with this one.

Having seen the build up on social media I was actually quite nervous reading it and was on edge waiting for the bad stuff to happen and without a doubt it is pretty grim in places but crime readers will be accustomed to this, the author is certainly inventive.

I did find the characters hard to follow at times and my attention wasnt held 100%, and this disappointed me, and the ending I found to be utterly unbelievable.

On the whole is was a fair read and I suspect that this will race up the charts given the warnings and hype surrounding it, however as a reviewer I know full well there are better books out there waiting to be read. (2 of them are featured on here lol)
