KIRKUS REVIEW

This belongs to the Ladies in Retirement school of thriller. ""Bessie"" religious fanatic who has ""something on"" her school principal sister comes back to the school and launches a wholesale family slaughter, culminating in her own madness. A horror story, based on an actual case, but -- in spite of that -- not very convincing although the growing terrorization against the school background is effective.
