The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon Reviewed By happyruby

Madeline Christopher has landed a job at Armitage Academy. Armitage is a prestigious school with many traditions but some of the traditions are not common knowledge among the faculty. When Claire Harkness is found dead in her dorm room, the investigation brings some of these secret traditions to light.

Madeline is one of the first to view Claire’s body and was shocked that it appeared that Claire might have just given birth. Madeline’s intuitions turn out to be accurate but the baby has disappeared. Not only is Armitage faced with the death of a very popular student but a student who has managed to keep her pregnancy hidden from the faculty. Only a few trusted friends were aware that Claire was pregnant.

The only student deaths that Armitage had experienced were that of three other students. One student died in a car accident, one died of leukemia and another in a climbing accident. Now the police were out on the campus in full force. Both the students and the faculty were in turmoil.

Three of the students came to Madeline’s room frightened and unsure what to do. The students confided in Madeline about a secret society that Claire and her friends were involved in. As soon as they confided they were sorry that they had revealed their secret and pressed Madeline not to report their conversation to the police

The detective in charge of the investigation was a former Armitage student now employed by the police department. Madeline was quick to fill in the police on the information that had been revealed to her in spite of the warnings she received.

This is a book that takes a good long look at college life and the teachers committed to educating children. The end was a surprise for this reader.

About happyruby

HappyRuby is a combination of the names of two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that I owned - Happy Talk and Karri's Ruby, both deceased now but I do have a dog and cat. I live in the Midwest so enjoy a change of seasons. I am an office manager for two plants that process pet food ingredients. I worked a number of years as an office manager for a law office. I only work part-time now which gives me more time to read. My daughter lives in W. VA and is a huge fan of mystery - the darker the better. My other daughter is into reading romance and my granddaughter loves fantasy. I very much enjoy reading mystery, hard-boiled or cozy.
