9780007313037: An Advancement of Learning

All is not well at Holm Coultram College.

Lecturers having it away with students, witches’ sabbaths on the sand dunes, a body buried under a statue in the gardens…

But even with Dalziel’s cynical view of what college administrators spend his taxes on, murder doesn’t quite seem to fit in here. So when Dalziel and that over-educated sergeant of his, Peter Pascoe, are sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn’t reckoned on a rash of killings.

While Pascoe rekindles an old flame on the staff, protesting students astutely identify Dalziel as a ‘fascist pig’. The Superintendent smiles with satisfaction. If that’s how they want to play it…
