The Harrow School is home to privileged adolescents. Seventeen-year-old American Andrew Taylor is enrolled in the esteemed British institution by his father, who hopes that the school's 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, Andrew is blamed and is soon an outcast. 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 school's poet-in-residence, Piers Fawkes, is commissioned to write a play about Byron, one of Harrow's most famous alumni, he casts Andrew in the title role. In his loneliness and isolation, Andrew becomes obsessed with Lord Byron's story and the poet's status not only as a literary genius and infamous seducer but as a student at the very different Harrow of two centuries prior. When frightening and tragic events from that long-ago past start to recur in Harrow's present, Andrew is forced to solve a two-hundred-year-old literary mystery.
