Synopsis:

Files from a secret research project show up on Dr. Robert Thames's doorstep, forcing him to think about something he's been avoiding - the degrading "study" at Danvers Academy, especially the naked photos of each student, including himself, taken at his prep school. He tracks down four close friends from school, and together they uncover the terrible truth of what was buried by the faculty, the school, and the boys themselves.

The book is available from amazon.com
