"An outrageous plot of villainy starring seven brilliant young girls"
An outrageous plot of villainy starring seven brilliant young girls.
At Prickwillow Place, Disgraceful Mary Jane, Smooth Kitty and their fellow students are keeping a deadly secret.
When the headmistress of St Etheldreda's School for Young Ladies drops dead at Sunday dinner, her seven pupils agree on a clever scheme: to bury their teacher in the vegetable garden, dress up Stout Alice in her place, and educate themselves. This is tricky enough in a small Victorian community, but when the girls deduce that their teacher was poisoned – (it was the veal!) – they realise there is also a murderer on the prowl . . .
An outrageous plot of mysterious happenings, farce and friendship.
