The headmistress of High Fell Hall, an expensive boarding school for girls near Richmond, asks Dr Mills Sanderson to help two pupils with their studies over the summer.  Her duties have hardly begun when one of the girls, Cecile Fleurot, daughter of a French diplomat, drowns while playing Ophelia in the school production of Hamlet.

Her death appears to be an accident but then another pupil is reported missing. Meanwhile Mills discovers that the skeletal remains she is excavating on a building site in Gilling West may be more that just bones “of antiquity”.
