Shirley Holmes is named after the famous sleuth of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fame and is a fanatic on mystery and crime

Her big chance comes when the housemother in her dorm is found dead under peculiar circumstances. Shirley, determined to solve the crime, locks all the girls in the communal study

The suspects include Melanie, the professional southern Belle; Sniffles the hypochondriac; Theda, the world's greatest undiscovered talent; and Fifi, an exchange student whose biggest battle is understanding English

Shirley has a noble assistant in "Dotty" Watson, who is delighted to write everything down in her "memoirs." Shirley's sleuthing is hilarious and causes something of a scandal as she unravels the "heinous crime"
