The Teacher

The TeacherThe Teacher by Katerina Diamond

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Set in Exeter, it opens with the murder of a school teacher with an extremely dodgy past but the plot soon spreads out to the wider city and beyond, as more bodies turn up, the victims of gruesome deaths. Part of the team investigating the deaths are two disgraced DSs and it is only them who think that the obvious suspect didn’t do it.

The writing style with this one is not great, far too much tell instead of show and the dialogue, particularly at the end, with all the high stakes conversations with the bad guys and the tortured internal monologues, was a bit cringeworthy, however Diamond did manage to make her four main characters, sympathetic and believable, so I still managed to get engaged by the story.
