Teacher's Dead

A teacher is dead – murdered by two of his students in front of the whole school. Right in front of Jackson Jones. But Mr Joseph was a good man. People liked him, respected him. How could those boys stab him and jog away like nothing even happened? Jackson can’t get his head around it. So he starts his own investigation to try and figure things out. Everyone knows who did it. But as Jackson learns more about the boys, he becomes convinced that people need to know why.
