It is nearly the end of the school year at Trinity High, and there will be many seniors glad to leave. But for Carter and Obie, two leading members of The Vigils, the school's secret society, there are still some scores to settle.
Seeking revenge on Archie Costello, assigner of The Vigils, for ruining his friendship with the beautiful Laurie Gundarson, and remembering the fate of freshman Jerry Renault, Obie devises an outrageous plan, involving a trick guillotine and the glaring publicity of the school's Fair Day. It seems that Obie will stop at nothing . . .
A brilliant development of the characters in 'The Chocolate War'.
