9780099435594: The Lake Of Dead Languages

Jane Hudson never thought she would return to Heart Lake. Her years there as a scholarship girl ended in a fatal and mysterious double tragedy.

Now she is back, struggling to adjust to her new life teaching Latin and as a single mother. But the events that haunted her memories for so many years begin to recur in front of her eyes. It seems she alone can see what is happening, and only she will be able to prevent a second catastrophe...

Surrounded by the lake that gives the school its name, steeped in history and overflowing with the emotions of teenage girls, Heart Lake guards its past - but cannot keep it hidden.

Review:

"Fulfilling... Miss Jean Brodie meets Donna Tartt... A good read, promising much for the future." ( Daily Express)

" Goodman's New England gothic sets up a chilling atmosphere and a gruesome scenario very nicely indeed." ( The Guardian)

"a very slinky little spine-chiller whose occasional forays into complete madness don't do too much harm." ( Evening Standard)

"A gripping, well-written psychological thriller, rich in atmospheric detail." ( Family Circle)

"A highly charged novel of suspense that will have you riveted to your chair." ( Woman & Home)

From the Publisher:

From the depths of the past, deadly secrets are unfolding… A gripping story of murder and secrets in the bestseling tradition of Donna Tartt’s A Secret History.
