As George and Jack investigate the murder of headmaster Brian Chaps,his neck skewered with a knitting needle,George's parents' divorce preys on her mind and Jack's attempts at levity do not help. Prime suspect is parent Davina Hall,who rowed with the victim and has a knitting needle in her bag but being left-handed exonerates her. Several other mothers,all avid knitters,admit to trying to bribe Chaps to enrol their children and Jack falls for one of them but George believes she is the killer. Will a second murder prove her right?
