Description

Another mystery novel from the ever popular Poisoned Pen Press

St. Martha's College, Cambridge, had been staggering along on a shoestring for decades. Then alumna Alice Toon leaves her old school a huge fortune. The dons immediately fall to fighting over the spoils. The Virgins, led by Dame Maud, believe the bequests should be spent on scholarships. The Dykes — fewer in number but better streetfighters — want to raise a centre of Gender and Ethnic Studies. The Old Women (mostly men) dream of fine vintages to be laid down in a decent new wine cellar. Impasse! They've reckoned without the Bursar, Jack Troutbeck. She elects to infiltrate her own agent, Robert Amiss, a former civil servant with a talent for sorting things out. No sooner does he arrive on the scene where the Virgins are getting the upper hand than Dame Maud is murdered, leading us into "An acidly funny romp... Superbly bitchy on the none-too-fragrant groves of academe." —Mike Ripley, Daily Telegraph

REVIEWS

“The clever plot takes second place to the ebullience of the writing and spot-on inventiveness of the satire.”
