Death at the Alma Mater, Paperback


Beg, borrow ...or kill! 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 unsavoury secrets ...and a shocking twist.
