Kirkston Abbey is no place for the weak. Standing stark against the Norfolk sky, its aim is conformity and control; its rules harsh, its discipline savage. To 14-year-old Jonathan Palmer, it is a prison; a world in which he feels threatened and powerless. When he is offered the chance of escape, in the guise of an unexpected friendship, he accepts it gladly. But all is not as it seems. In combining his frustrations with a nature that is far more intense and destructive than his own, Jonathan is unleashing forces more powerful than he can ever hope to control. In the bleak winter term of 1954, something terrible happened at Kirkston Abbey school for boys. Now, more than forty years later, journalist Tim Webber thinks he's found the key to uncovering the truth. But is he prepared to live with the consequences ...?
