Six private school thrillers for the grown-up & graduated

Before turning to fiction, Aggie Blum Thompson covered real-life crime as a newspaper reporter for a number of papers, including The Boston Globe and The Washington Post. She lives with her husband and two children, a cat, and a dog in the suburbs of Washington D.C. She is the author of I Don't Forgive You and All the Dirty Secrets.

At CrimeReads she tagged six favorite private school thrillers. One title on the list:
For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing

In this fast-paced and sharply written thriller, Teddy Crutcher is teacher of the year at the Belmont Academy and takes pride in his job. He claims his wife does, too—but no one has seen her lately. And when a popular student, a fellow teacher, and a parent start meddling in his life, he will stop at nothing to teach them lessons for their own good. Once again, Downing displays her ability to get inside a truly diabolical mind that made her earlier book My Lovely Wife such a great read.
