Abstract:

Susannah "Zanny" Moncrief, age six when she drowns little Willie, who with his sister Dolly was evacuated during World War II from Birmingham and found sanctuary with the Moncriefs in Wales. The lovely, seraphic killer escapes suspicion by the police; but her parents and Dolly know, without saying so, what happened. Older and tougher than her brother, Dolly has been absorbing facts about the "posh" life during their stay with the wealthy family. She survives Zanny's second lethal attempt and, benefiting from the Moncriefs' fear- and guilt-ridden largesse, lands in an exclusive boarding school with Zanny, of whom she remains wary. All is well until Zanny, 15, falls for the school's gardener, Murphy, and sends his lover, Bridget, over a cliff to her death.
