. .A fierce and jealous ghost . . .A young mans fight for his life . . .The Harrow School is home to privileged adolescents known as much for their distinctive dress and traditions as for their arrogance and schoolboy cruelty. Seventeen-year-old American Andrew Taylor is enrolled in the esteemed British institution by his father, who hopes that the schools discipline will put some distance between his son and his troubled past in the States.But trouble--and danger--seem to follow Andrew. When one of his schoolmates and friends dies mysteriously of a severe pulmonary illness, Andrew is blamed and is soon an outcast, spurned by nearly all his peers.

And there is the pale, strange boy who begins to visit him at night. Either Andrew is losing his mind, or the house legend about his dormitory being haunted is true.When the schools poet-in-residence, Piers Fawkes, is commissioned to write a play about Byron, one of Harrows most famous alumni, he casts Andrew in the title role. Andrew begins to discover uncanny links between himself and the renowned poet.

In his loneliness and isolation, Andrew becomes obsessed with Lord Byrons story and the poets status not only as a literary genius and infamous seducer but as a student at the very different Harrow of two centuries prior--a place rife with violence, squalor, incurable diseases, and tormented love affairs.When frightening and tragic events from that long-ago past start to recur in Harrows present, and when the dark and deadly specter by whom Andrews been haunted seems to be all too real, Andrew is forced to solve a two-hundred-year-old literary mystery that threatens the lives of his friends and his teachers--and, most terrifyingly, his own.
