Description

Book 3 in the Agatha Award-Winning Series

St. Michael's College, Cambridge, is prestigious, stately-and in frightful disrepair. To replenish its dwindling coffers, the College's Master holds a fundraising weekend for wealthy alums. But all goes awry when the glamorous--and despised--Lexy Laurant is found strangled on the grounds. There's a lengthy list of likely suspects: Lexy's debt-ridden Latino lover, her titled ex-husband who left her for another woman, and a garrulous oil-rich Texan with something to hide, among others. As Detective Chief Inspector St. Just weighs clashing egos, he discovers unsavory secrets...and a most shocking twist.

Praise:

"This third in the series is every bit as good as its predecessors. Longtime cozy fans will be reminded of Golden Age classics starring Dorothy Sayers' Harriet Vane and Edmund Crispin's Gervase Fen."--Booklist (starred review)

"G.M. Malliet presents a meticulous novel with sophistication and uncomplicated restraint. She keeps mystery fans guessing without thrusting overwhelming or unnecessary detail into her well-researched scenes."--ForeWord

"Fans of Dorothy Sayers's novels and other Golden Age British mysteries will enjoy this contemporary salute, which even includes the traditional gathering of suspects at the end when the detective reveals all."--Library Journal

"A witty third cozy."--Publishers Weekly

"It certainly shouldn't be missed."--Reviewing the Evidence
