Madeline Dare has traded in the drudgery of living in backwoods Syracuse, New York to work as a teacher at Santangelo Academy, a boarding school for emotionally disturbed teenagers in the Berkshires. Behind the ornate gates of the academy, she finds a disturbing realm where students and teachers must follow the dean's bizarre therapies.

From her first day, Madeline doubts Dr. Santangelo's credibility--and she's not afraid to voice her concerns. But she quickly discovers that many of her colleagues are devout followers of the dean. When a chilling event confirms Madeline's suspicions, she feels trapped within a school full of lunatics. Shut off from the outside world, Maddie forms an unlikely alliance with a small group of rebellious students whose constant resistance to authority may be her only salvation.

About the Author:

CORNELIA READ's first novel, A Field of Darkness, was nominated for an Edgar Award for best first novel. The author lives in Berkeley, California.

From AudioFile:

Author Cornelia Read tells this story of teacher Madeline Dare, who unearths a conspiracy among her fellow teachers at a school for troubled youth. It's a dark account of an authoritarian headmaster and the murder of a young couple by poison. Madeline herself is accused of the crime, a development that forces her to join forces with the school's most rebellious students to identify the real perpetrators. Hillary Huber carries out the reading at a tortoise pace. While her delivery is clear, it sprawls on and on, emphasizing every word and pulling the energy out of what could have been a captivating story. The result is a poor listening experience.
