Appropriately, it was at Hallowe'en that headmaster Harold Medburn's body, dressed in academic cap and gown, was found swinging from the school's rusty netball hoop. And although his death brought fear to some hearts, relief was the dominant response, for Medburn had been a bully. The police accuse Medburn's wife, Kitty, of killing him because he planned to leave her for another woman; but Jack Robson, the school caretaker, who had loved Kitty when they were classmates years ago, disagrees. Helped by his clever daughter Patty, he does his homework among Medburn's friends and neighbors and finds half a dozen of them have powerful motives for murdering the hated headmaster. It is in the ugly secrets of Medburn's life and in the dark passions that sometimes ensnare good people that Robson finally discovers the tragic - and desperately dangerous - truth. If you do buy this book, read it all at one time. That way you will get the full effect. AMAZON.COM customer
