9780749005245: Maxwell's Match (Peter Maxwell Mystery)

On a two-week staff exchange, Peter ‘Mad Max’ Maxwell leaves behind his familiar local comprehensive school for the altogether more sophisticated charms of Grimonds, a private academy steeped in tradition and money. But something is amiss here - within a day of his arrival, Maxwell has yet again stumbled upon a suspicious unnatural death. Two days later and another teacher is dead. This time it’s definitely murder. With journalists besieging the school and parents in a panic, the Headmaster is scrambling to preserve Grimonds’ reputation. And when Maxwell’s girlfriend, DS Jacquie Carpenter, gets assigned to the case he soon finds himself involved in a complex police investigation and a tangled web of secrets.
