Who knows what evil lurks in the halls of Farberville's high school - or what blackmail is hidden in Miss Demeanor's "Falcon Crier" advice column? Certainly not bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy - until her daughter Caron persuades her to substitute for disgraced column editor and journalism teacher Emily Parchester. Surley Miss Parchester cannot be guilty of embezzlement. But the petty charges graduate to murder when Principal Weiss gets his last licks from Miss Parchester's peach compote. Miss Parchester herself, last seen at a local sanitarium, is suddenly missing. And now it's up to Claire to find someone who's been schooled in the fine art of murder ...

Well, as a teacher Ms Malloy is so Not Convincing, as her daughter Caron might say. Otherwise, this is another cosy mystery in best Christie fashion and with as many red herrings as anyone could wish for.
