Death at the Alma Mater, Paperback / softback Book

Death at the Alma Mater Paperback / softback

Part of the The St. Just Mysteries series

Paperback / softback


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.
