In St Crispin's Academy, near Cabot Cove, Jessica gives a lecture, and witnesses a prank, switching a Shakespeare bust with an Elvis. Even her protégée seems in the spell of the mischievous Prometheus fraternity, lead by silver spoon-boy Colin Forbes. Notably a Cabot Cove fisherman's son is suspected of involvement in a thefts-wave in the area. There is a vicious fight going on for the coveted post of headmaster. Jessica's friend, English professor Harry Matthews, loses against history professor James Ryerson, whose corpse is shortly after found in the faculty office, with a smashed-in skull. Matthews now gets the job, but has no alibi, so he's arrested after the murder weapon was found in his locker. Jessica and the sheriff were already on the premises, and soon unearth motives and opportunities... Written by
