Description

How far would you go to uncover the truth? In this suspenseful, provocative mystery novel by Joanna Goodman - our very own CEO! - a successful writer returns to her elite Swiss boarding school to get to the bottom of a tragic accident that took place while she was a student twenty years earlier. Inspired by "real-ish" events, this unputdownable read is as clever as it is compelling, The Finishing School, a novel of secrets, deceit and friendships, offers a riveting glimpse into a privileged, rarefied world in which nothing is as it appears. Published by Harper Collins.

“A page-turner of the best sort - a novel that dusts the polish off of prestige and leaves you with the startling truth."

- Joy Callaway, author of The Fifth Avenue Artist's Society

“The Finishing School plunges the reader headfirst into a fast-paced, nail-biting mystery that also manages to explore friendship, love, adolescence, family and motherhood. By the time you reach the unexpected ending, you’ll practically be gasping for air.”

— Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Trouble with Lexie

"The Finishing School is a compelling story by a writer who clearly knows her way around the thin oxygen world of the rich and famous. Every page resonates with authenticity."

Roberta Rich, author of The Midwife of Venice and The Harem Midwife

“If your guilty-pleasure reads include elite boarding schools, secret societies, murder, and scandal, this one’s for you.”

Kirkus Reviews

“The Finishing School plunges the reader headfirst into a fast-paced, nail-biting mystery that also manages to explore friendship, love, adolescence, family and motherhood. By the time you reach the unexpected ending, you’ll practically be gasping for air.”

Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Trouble with Lexie

“A compelling tale of horrific teenage secrets inside the walls of an elite school in Switzerland, unearthed with verve and sly irony. The truth is cold and slippery as ice as Goodman draws us into the darkness beneath the glittering surface of lakes and snowcapped mountains, and of privilege itself.”

 Deborah Lawrenson, author of 300 Days of Sun

"The Finishing School pulls back the curtain to expose a fascinating world of desire, betrayal, and dangerous secrets."

Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and Faraway Gone
