BACK IN CAMBRIDGE, HISTORIAN GILLIAN ADAMS FINDS MURDER WAITING…
The death of a brilliant young scientist in the Chemistry Department at Cambridge shocks both the university and the town, and Gillian Adams – a Canadian academic in Cambridge for the summer – finds herself caught up in the midst of investigations.
Venomous professional rivalries and a clandestine love affair are only two of the motives for this vicious murder. When a second body turns up there appears to be no links with the first, but everyone knows that if the deaths can be tied, the thread will lead to the murderer. While the police methodically sift the evidence, Gillian takes a different approach, asking the questions that only a woman can.
‘Kelly is as stunning on the evocative geography of workplaces as she is at dry, educated repartee. A chilling intrigue, which shrewdly examines professional jealousies and warped psychologies’
JOHN COLEMAN, 'Sunday Times'
