Disturbing, Dark Edge…
Unexplained disappearances at the end of a 2019 Autumn term at Harvard are soon to be dubbed as ‘The Harvard Curse’ by media sensationalists. But, what really happened? Secrets will be revealed in this engaging, well written, well researched mystery with a disturbing, dark edge and a credible cast of characters.

NetGalley review (Guest Review) - 21 Sep, 2021

An enjoyable mystery psych thriller with some really interesting characters playing parts in a story of obsession and grief.

I really liked the twisty sense of it and especially liked the point of view of one particular character that had a disturbing voice in her obsessive and stalkerish nature.

I do love a university setting and this was a good one with a cleverly horrible ending that was satisfying and disturbing

Yes. Good. Will look forward to more from this author.

Great book! Very captivating, didn't want to put the book down! Great talent. That young author will go far.
I couldn't imagine a first novel to be that good.
