Publisher's Summary

The position of Assistant Headteacher has become available at Leighford High, but Peter "Mad Max" Maxwell won't be applying. He has his hands full juggling his beloved Sixth Form, fatherhood and impending marriage. When a member of staff dies after a special lunch for the prospective Assistant Headteachers, Maxwell's hopes for a quiet term, followed by a quiet wedding, are swiftly shattered, as he finds himself embroiled in yet another sinister murder case. DCI Henry Hall, begrudgingly, has to admit that Maxwell's suspicions of poison may well be correct. The question is, who would want to poison the teachers at Leighford High - and why? Is there an enemy in the ranks? Only Mad Max knows the answer...

Funny and thoughtful

MJ Trow has written a story with a crime that we all will have heard of at some stage, and it could just as easily be in our community. It was brilliantly read by Peter Wickham. Before the crime can get to gruesome, the humour in the book surfaces and you find yourself smiling if not laughing out loud right in the midst of murder. Great book
