Publisher's Summary

Professor Emily Cavanaugh makes a horrific discovery while writing her book on Dostoevsky in the entertaining fourth Crime with the Classics story.

Professor Emily Cavanaugh has left Windy Corner behind and is back at Bede College on her sabbatical, determined to finish writing her book on Dostoevsky. She is soon reunited with one of her promising students, Daniel Razumov, as well as familiar faces on the teaching staff - her friend, Marguerite Grenier; her half-brother, Oscar Lansing; the abrasive division chair, Richard McClintock; and the predatory Taylor Curzon, known for her relentless pursuit of young male students - and Taylor now has Daniel firmly in her sights.

Emily knows Taylor must be stopped, but as she starts gathering evidence of Daniel’s harassment, she has a disturbing flashback, and then makes a gruesome discovery.... Can Emily catch a dangerous campus killer while also confronting events from her own past?

Bleh.

I have heard all the books in this series and the first two were interesting and well-done. That was the past. The present book is tired and you could figure out the plot by time the first third of the book was read. The author has become much more strident in voice and in using religion. I won't be reading/listening to any more in this series.

Was there suppose to be a mystery?

This had to be one of the worst books I have listened to. I love the narrator which is how I actually ended up listening to this series. The other books were pretty good but this one was lacking… pretty much knew what was going to happen and who did it. If you read/listen to a lot of cozy’s you may want to pass on this one.

Annoyed by main character

I enjoyed the narration. But I found Emily an annoying character. Judgemental and lacking in any compassion for the victim. I understand her meddling helped solve the case, but why on earth did the police allow her to get so involved with in the first place.

Don’t bother…

How a woman as morally patronising and slow witted could be a college professor is bewildering. A thin plot and two dimensional characters make this a sickly listen. It is impossible to engage with the characters or the storyline.

Too much God

This is a reasonably satisfying detective story. Spoiled for me by the authors’ constantly present religious agenda. It is rather insulting that those without theist beliefs are deemed to be incapable of ethical behaviour.

Superficial story

Downloaded based on the review, but disappointed.

Entirely untrue of the academic life, as if it were all about flirting, affairs and power. Superficial and contrived.

Unless it is about fantasy.

The reading is fairly good.
