This no-holds-barred satire of Britain's school tradition is perhaps Robert Barnard's most hilarious mystery. An uproarious parody of failed pedants and crackpot bureaucrats, Barnard's wit moves from satire on stuffy rulemongers to a desperately black comedy of manners characterisitc of his best work.
