“A short, fast, smoothly readable story that is blessedly sui generis and not just another copycat of whatever the latest marketing recommendations are. Try it for yourself.”

“A quick read with a satisfying ending on all counts.”

Shauna Thompson, last seen in Deadmistress as a sixteen year old student, is now the first African-American teacher hired to teach at the high school in the affluent town of Hilliard, Connecticut. Shauna is being subjected to a series of cruel but ingenious pranks and asks Susan Lombardi to help her find the culprit. Are the pranks the work of a gifted but twisted student or a jealous colleague? Meanwhile another teacher, Leo Loops, the scion of a prominent Hilliard family, disappears. When his wife is found dead in the basement of their home, the police start searching for Leo, and Susan can’t resist looking for him herself.
