LESSON IN DYING, A

Synopsis

Who hanged the headmaster in the playground on the night of the school Halloween Party? Almost everyone in Heppleburn either hated or feared the viper-tongued Harold Medburn. Inspector Ramsay is convinced it was the headmaster's wife but Jack Robson, the school caretaker, is determined to prove her innocence. With the help of his daughter, Patty, Jack digs into the secrets of Heppleburn, and uncovers a cesspit - of lies, adultery, blackmail and madness.
