Something is happening to the young girls of St. Francis Xavier High School - something evil.

"In Saul's second horror novel a priest has summoned an old school chum to teach psychology at a parochial school. Shortly after classes begin, a rash of suicides takes place, connected somehow to the new teacher. Or could they have something to do with the sadistic fifteenth-century "saint" venerated by the school's elite? This abridgment is given a particularly graceless and inept reading that should horrify the author, if no one else. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
