Klassemoord (Inspector Lynley #3)

Klassemoord (Inspector Lynley #3) - Elizabeth  George, Cobi de Groot Well-Schooled in Murder is a crime novel by Elizabeth George first published in 1990. Set in the late 1980s at an elite public school in the South of England founded in 1489, the book, which is a mystery novel in the tradition of the whodunnit, revolves around the strict yet unwritten code of behaviour prevalent at independent schools which says that under no circumstances must pupils ever tell on their schoolmates, no matter what they have done. Accordingly, when a 13 year-old boy goes missing one Friday afternoon and two days later is found dead in a churchyard an hour's drive away, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, both of the Criminal Investigation Department of New Scotland Yard, are up against a wall of silence as none of the 600 pupils of Bredgar Chambers School seems to be willing to co-operate with the police and communicate what they know.

This book however slightly touches the subject of child pornography which always makes me a bit uncomfortable. I have read this book 4 times now and every time I forget who actually did 'it' and all the suspects they come up with sound liable again. If you like crime novels, this book should be on your shelf.
