Leys Physical Training College was famous for its excellent discipline and Miss. Lucy Pym was pleased and flattered to be invited to give a psychology lecture there. But she had to admit that the health and vibrant beauty of the students made her feel just a little inadequate. Then there was a nasty accident - and suddenly Miss.

223 pages. Softcover. Good condition. FICTION. Murder visited a peaceful campus in the sun-warmed green of June. But Miss Pym, a guest lecturer on psychology, arrived ahead of death. Warm-hearted, blithe Miss Pym didn't suspect that evil lived behind one of those pretty, healthy faces; the girls were all so normal. Then came the "accident"-unexpected and fatal. And Miss Pym put all her psychological theories into practice to prove that the death was really murder! "Penetrating...with a thumping terminal surprise"-Saturday Review (Key Words: Murder Mysteries, Fiction, Josephine Tey).

Josephine Tey wrote so few books that each has received an unusual scrutiny, and one that I wish each Great Mystery Writer had also received.
