For Miss Cordell, principal of Persephone College, there are two great evils to be feared: unladylike behavior among her students, and bad publicity for the college. So her prim and cozy world is turned upside down when a secret society of undergraduates meets by the river on a gloomy January afternoon, only to find the drowned body of the college bursar floating in her canoe. The police assume that a student prank got out of hand, but the resourceful Persephone girls suspect foul play, and take the investigation into their own hands. Soon they uncover the tangled secrets that led to the bursar's death -and the clues that point to a fellow student. This classic mystery novel, with its evocative setting in an Oxford women's college, is now republished for the first time since the 1930s, with an introduction by the award-winning crime writer Stephen Booth.

Review:
It was interesting to follow how he sorted out the clues and gathered the needed evidence to arrest the suspect. The antics of the undergraduates were humorous and gave a lighthearted feel to the story.--Deborah White "NetGalley "

Death on the Cherwell by Mavis Doriel Hay is one of the novels published during what is considered the Golden Age of British Crime Writing in the 1930s. The authors of crime fiction were very popular at that time and deserve a second chance to delight the mystery lovers of today.--Mary Ann Smyth "Bookloons "

Another wonderful British Library Crime Classic! This Girls Own story set in Persephone College, Oxford, where the body of the Bursar of the college is found in the river, harks back to exciting stories of plucky girls who investigate and solve mysteries which were so popular in the 1930s.--Eileen Hall "NetGalley "

The result is a wonderful "one of us may be the murderer" tangle, encompassing fraud and passion in the college itself. Intelligent, funny, sexy cast, and what do you have? Some marvelous reading, that's what. Another worthy rerelease in the British Library Crime Classics series.--Connie Fletcher "Booklist "
