Working at an exclusive girls' school should have been a pleasure for Sheila Malory - until she begins to suspect murder has taken place . . .When Sheila Malory is asked to help out at the prestigious Blakeney's School for Girls, she is simultaneously thrilled and terrified. For her predecessor, Margaret Hood, is a hard act to follow. A powerfully charismatic figure, Margaret inspired fierce loyalty in her select group of pupils - until her sudden death. With her characteristic charm and discretion, Sheila soon becomes a popular member of staff, entertaining confidences from both colleagues and pupils. In doing so she learns that not everyone considered Margaret Hood to be a positive influence on the girls . . . And then a second death shakes Blakeney's foundations. As Sheila delves deeper still she discovers that there are dark secrets lurking beneath the surface of this well-to-do establishment - and no shortage of people with the motive for murder . . .
