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.
Can the redoubtable Mrs Bradley use tact, wit, and just a touch of black magic to make the boys and their masters divulge the truth about his death?
