Description

For generations, elite young men have attended Saint Oswald s School for Boys, groomed for success by the likes of Roy Straitley, the eccentric classics teacher who has been a revered fixture for more than thirty years. Contemplating retirement, he is joined this term by five new faculty members, including one who unknown to Straitley and everyone else holds intimate and dangerous knowledge of Saint Oswald s ways and secrets. Harboring dark ties to the school s past, this young teacher has arrived with one terrible goal: to destroy Saint Oswald s. Told in alternating voices, "Gentlemen & Players" is a riveting, hypnotically atmospheric novel of suspense that showcases Joanne Harris astonishing storytelling talent."

Review quote

"She's a master of surprise, able in the wink of an eye to transport the reader from tranquil normality to stark terror....Anything goes in Harris's marvelous mind, and the reader who pays attention discovers rich rewards."
