"'Find what you were looking for, Inspector?' "
"Every day the same question. A different uniform but the same
question. They thought Lucia enjoyed being here. They thought that
was why she kept coming back. But they were asking the wrong thing.
She had found what she was looking for - she had found what she had
been sent to discover - but she had found out more besides. The
question was what to do about it. The question was whether to do
anything at all."
In the depths of a sweltering summer, teacher Samuel Szajkowski
walks into his school assembly and opens fire. He kills three
pupils and a colleague before turning the gun on himself.
Lucia May, the young policewoman who is assigned the case, is
expected to wrap up things quickly and without fuss. The incident
is a tragedy that could not have been predicted and Szajkowski, it
seems clear, was a psychopath beyond help. Soon, however, Lucia
becomes preoccupied with the question no one else seems to want to
ask: what drove a mild-mannered, diffident school teacher to commit
such a despicable crime?
Piecing together the testimonies of the teachers and children
at the school, Lucia discovers an uglier, more complex picture of
the months leading up to the shooting. She realises too that she
has more in common with Szajkowski than she could have imagined. As
the pressure to bury the case builds, she becomes determined to
tell the truth about what happened, whatever the consequences . .
