If any readers liked Sebastian Faulk's Engleby, this is very similar in tone and humour (both dark). Set in Oxford and narrated by the nanny of the eight year old girl who has disappeared. This is a book ultimately deals with the theme of judgement: the nanny jusges the parents who also judge her. Snobbery and bullying are part and parcel of the academic echelons of the institutions and each side seems to loath, yet depend on the other. Don't get me wrong, this book hones right in to the main characters and the Nanny's narration is razor sharp - but is it reliable? I LOVED the writing, tension and descriptions. Truly excellent read that's left me mullng l0ts of things over.
