...having almost all of the characters connected to the school means that the plot can struggle to breathe, and the control of this oddly overdetermined narrative is not always entirely assured.

Synopsis

Stephen Maxwell has just retired from a lifetime spent teaching history at his alma mater. As he writes the official history of Blake's, a minor public school steeped in military tradition, he also reveals how, forty years ago, a secret conflict dating from the Second World War re-enacted itself among staff and pupils, when fascism once more made its presence felt in the school and the city, with violent and nightmarish results.
