They have the perfect marriage. Did one of them kill to get it?

Prep school sweethearts Ian and Andi Copeland are envied by everyone they know. They have successful businesses, a beautiful house in St. Louis, and their eldest daughter, Cassidy, is following in their footsteps by attending prestigious Glenlake Academy. Then, a submerged car is dredged from the bottom of a swimming hole near the campus. So are the remains of a former writer-in-residence who vanished twenty years ago--during Ian and Andi's senior year.

When Cassidy's journalism class begins investigating the death, Ian and Andi's high school secrets rise to the surface. Each has a troubled link to the man whose arrival and sudden disappearance once set the school on edge. And each had a reason to want him gone. As Cassidy unwittingly edges closer to the truth, unspoken words, locked away for decades, will force Ian and Andi to question what they really know--about themselves, about the past, and about a marriage built on a murderous lie.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This second effort from a Chicago-area writing duo (following The Swing of Things, 2018) delivers another well-crafted, page-turning suspense tale. The discovery of a car holding the remains of a teacher who disappeared 20 years earlier exposes the dark side of an Illinois prep school. Ian and Andi Copeland were high-school sweethearts who broke up briefly during their senior year, after Andi became involved with Dallas Walker, the teacher who vanished. The Copelands' daughter, Cassidy, is now a senior at the same prep school, Glenlake, and her journalism class is exploring the teacher's case as a project. A groundskeeper has been arrested for the teacher's murder, but Cassidy strives to prove his innocence. The story moves from the present day to Ian and Andi's time at school, seen through excerpts from their journals. The clever juxtaposition of the couple's relationship then and now adds satisfying depth to the mystery. While students being seduced by teachers has become a familiar fabric of contemporary life, the authors add a wealth of twists and turns to their telling, generating multiple surprises. A fine choice for those who enjoy prep-school mysteries.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ian and Andi Copeland, the protagonists of this gripping psychological thriller from the pseudonymous Keir (The Swing of Things), have been sweethearts since they met at Glenlake Academy, a prep school north of Chicago. The successful couple, who lead an idyllic life in St. Louis, have three children: Cassidy, a senior at Glenlake, and younger twins, who also expect to go to Glenlake, attendance there having been a family tradition since Ian's great-great-grandfather gifted the Copeland Academic Center. While Ian and Andi were at Glenlake, Dallas Walker, a recently hired poet-in-residence, disappeared. Twenty-two years later, Dallas's remains are found in his car submerged in a nearby lake. The current writer-in-residence, a journalist whose course Cassidy is taking, supports the class's decision to investigate Dallas's death. The ensuing inquiry begins to reveal problems in Ian and Andi's marriage, exposing secrets long kept from each other. As their fears grow about what might be brought to light, the suspenseful plot builds to an unexpected ending. Keir remains a writer to watch. Agent: Josh Getzler, HSG Agency. (Oct.)"
