Jayne Entwistle is a wry, spirited narrator, and her scratchy, warm voice is expertly matched to this dark comedy. When their headmistress and her brother die unexpectedly, the students of St. Etheldreda's school must think quickly, keep up appearances, and attempt to solve their murder before anyone is the wiser. The language of this story is almost Victorian, but Entwistle keeps events and characters clear, and her meticulous pacing is well suited to a murder mystery. Despite the gruesome deaths and the ensuing intrigue, Berry’s wickedly hilarious group of intelligent, triumphant young women and Entwistle's range of emotions and characterizations make this piece a compelling listen.
