St Swithun’s School teacher publishes second book
24th February 2015

English teacher Mr Sam Lenton from St Swithun’s School, Winchester has just published his second book.

The fictional thriller called A Right to Know, deals with a widower’s determination to uncover the truth about his wife’s supposed accidental death and is loosely based on the recent phone hacking scandal.

Mr Lenton began writing the novel in 2012, shortly after the release of his first book Accidental Crime. He has self-published both books which are available through Amazon, the online retailer.

From a scriptwriting background at university Mr Lenton has also written scripts which have been performed both in Cambridge and in his local area of Southampton.

Today marks an official launch of the book and Mr Lenton will be reading excerpts to pupils in the school library during lunchtime.

Sixth-form pupil Harriet Rose, who has recently read A Right to Know said ‘'The novel excels as an energetic mix of wit, tension and expert characterisation as the lines between truth and paranoia, and integrity and corruption, become increasingly blurred.'
