Q: How much of this was based on your experience as a young female teacher in a boys’ grammar school? I am discovering Joanne Harris with a different angle and am positively surprised how good she is when writing thriller/mystery. I received a digital copy of this novel from the publisher, OrangeSky Audio, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Both want to keep their secrets, Straitley in his misplaced loyalty to Eric and the School; Rebecca for reasons of her own, which are revealed as the narrative unfolds. Roy wants to know the truth, and Rebecca wants to tell: her brother's story, Conrad, the ghost who never left her family; as a young teacher in men's school; and a liar husband!Joanne Harris is an Anglo-French author, whose books include fourteen novels, two cookbooks and many short stories.

It is made clear that appointing a woman to this role is quite shocking in such a traditional setting. The pace and tempo increases in Phlegethan (Burning) where tension is as taut as piano wire as the narrow door of suspicion crashes and burns and is battered down in Styx (hate). Three of her books are sitting on my physical shelves: Chocolat, The Gospel of Loki, and The Testament of Loki. The story goes back and forth between the present time of 2006 at St Oswalds and Rebecca’s time as a supply teacher at King Henry’s in 1989.

Becky is not a traditional feminist; but she is clever enough to understand that the patriarchy is her enemy, and to use whatever weapons she can to turn her gender to advantage. The third novel in the Malbry trilogy, A Narrow Door is a sequel to Gentleman and Players (2005) and Different Class (2016).
