The Truants. Protagonist Jess Walker can’t wait to be on her East Anglia university campus and experience the skills of a charismatic teacher, Dr. Lorna Clay, an expert on Agatha Christie. Weinberg develops a cast of fascinating characters and structures the novel in ways that Christie would recognize. Jess becomes part of a small fun-loving group and Lorna Clay becomes the major influence on how Jess thinks and lives. We’re treated to love triangles, significant coming of age moments, murder, pages of clever writing and just the right amount of plot twisting tension.
