Sophie takes time out from teaching to study for a post-graduate degree at the University of the West Midlands
Perhaps it's a good job you won't find this institution in any of the higher education handbooks. I got the idea of the scam in this book from a real-life one I once came across - though it was nothing like as nasty as the one here.
To support herself as a student, Sophie turns her hobby, cooking, into a lucrative business. But maybe she wishes she hadn't.
