KIRKUS REVIEW

The Villa Bianca is a finishing school near Lugano--where once you might have learned to slant your knife and fork and accents aigus in the right direction. It is also the scene of a very different kind of student unrest since two of its pupils (all of fine families) have been killed--off the premises. And Frances, sent there as a secretary, finds it not such a ""lovely, utterly safe world"" when another student Ilona Barowza, makes her suspect that ""everything was not as it seemed"" and she is in ""direst danger."" The plot is just as implausible (what there is of it) as the very young ladylike Villa Bianca.
