Different Class Synopsis

With insolvency and academic failure looming, a new broom has arrived at the venerable school, bringing Powerpoint, sharp suits and even sixth form girls to the dusty corridors. But while Straitley does his sardonic best to resist this march to the future, a shadow from his past is stirring. A boy who even twenty years on haunts his teacher's dreams. A boy capable of bad things.

Different Class Press Reviews

'A magnificently plotted and twisty journey to the heart of a 24-year-old crime...darkly humorous...constantly wrongfoots and misdirects...up to a satisfyingly eccentric conclusion.' Observer

'Slowly, Harris reveals tiny clues, withholding full explanations until the startling denouement. Classy writing, sensitive and moving.' The Times

'Harris pulls off an impeccable thriller denouement...consistently entertaining. -- John Dugdale Sunday Times

'A masterpiece of misdirection.' -- Val McDermid

's laugh along the way ... exquisitely sinister... Part black comedy, part thriller, and totally enjoyable.' Daily Mail
