Baker & Taylor
At first Jonathan Palmer is glad to turn to wealthy student Richard Rokeby for protection at their harsh private school, but as Richard gets more possessive, Jonathan realizes there's something seriously wrong with his protector

Blackwell North Amer
Kirkston Abbey is no place for weak or sensitive boys. Unsupervised bullies wreak their vengeance in the dormitories at night; cold, exacting professors reduce their students to tears in class. So Jonathan Palmer can't believe his good fortune when Richard Rokeby seeks out his friendship. Rokeby is everything Jonathan is not: wealthy, strong, handsome, aloof; even the teachers can't touch him. With Rokeby as his protector, for the first time since arriving at the school, Jonathan feels safe.
But as the two boys grow closer and Rokeby's demands on the relationship intensify, Jonathan comes to realize that there is something not quite right about his new friend. Something a bit off-kilter. Something slightly unnatural. Something... dangerous.

& Taylor

Jonathan Palmer, a student at Kirkston Abbey, a brutal private school, feels lucky to have the privileged Richard Rokeby as a friend, until he begins to sense a diabolical danger emanating from Richard that threatens everyone. A first novel. 150,000 first printing.
