Washed-up author Rufus Orton needs money. It's the main reason he takes the gig teaching creative writing to inmates at HMP Holderness-that, and the flattery of prison officer Annabeth Harris, who contacted him out of the blue and begged him to take the job. Annabeth loves Rufus' work-genuinely. She loves being a prison officer too. But she's keeping a secret. Fifteen years ago, she did something bad, and if it ever comes out, her perfect new life will be destroyed. HMP resident Griffin Cox has no black marks against his name. He claims he's been wrongly convicted of the sex offence that put him in prison, but he's lying. He has a plan-and everything hinges on him securing a place in the classroom with Rufus and Annabeth. It's only then that the game can begin... Dark, twisted, and gripping, this addictive psychological thriller is perfect for listeners who enjoy stories about disturbing, charismatic criminals like Hannibal Lector and Patrick Bateman.
