Mrs Bradley is visiting the picturesque village of Spey in search of a book of spells believed to belong to her ancestor, the witch Mary Toadflax. During her time in the village, a junior master from the nearby school is found murdered. Gerald Conway was despised by both pupils and peers and there is no shortage of suspects.
