Witch Miss Seeton
DOROTHY SALISBURY DAVIS says: "Miss Seeton is an original: slyly innocent and madly wise. I loved every perilous minute of her romp through horror."
It all started when Chief Inspector Brinton of the Ashford Division found a cow in a ditch at dawn, with its throat cut.
Brinton asked the cow's owner to keep quiet about it. "Looks like ritual stuff. Things are bad enough as they are, and that Black Mass at Malebury Church hasn't helped, so we'll keep it under wraps for the moment. If this gets out, with everybody seeing witches and devils all over the blasted place, we'll really start something."
But things had already started and in Plummergen, a typically gossipy village, nothing could be kept under wraps.
Including some of the town's best people—who seemed to be going in for nude frolics, for religious reasons, of course.
Then, it so happened, Miss Seeton decided to buy a doll for the young daughter of a woman who had done her a favor.
"Did you see that?" one neighbor said to another. "What could she possibly want a thing like that for?" The other neighbor noted that Miss Seeton had also bought some pins, which might explain everything.
Soon there was a faction in the village that was sure Miss Seeton was a witch.
Meanwhile, Miss Seeton had been offered two jobs, which was so flattering for a retired schoolmistress. One job was to be a part-time teacher . . . "nothing onerous." That was nice. Miss Seeton could use the extra money.
The other offer was from Scotland Yard. Miss Seeton read that letter again. To join the police force? Really that would not do. She had neither the knowledge nor experience for such work. It wouldn't do at all!
But she did join the force. And she and her umbrella were of great assistance to the Yard, dealing with all sorts of devilment.
This is the third book about Miss Seeton's adventures and it's the fastest, and weirdest and funniest. A delightful suspenseful tale.
