Publisher's Summary

From the Ivory Tower…

Harvard professor Wilson Chaney has a secret and somebody knows it. His adulterous affair with a freshman ended just weeks before she wound up dead. The sole trace of his infatuation is a stack of missing love letters - and they’ve fallen into the wrong hands…

To the Grave.

Carlotta Carlyle takes the case to find his blackmailer and retrieve the letters. Six-foot-one and red-haired, this private eye doesn’t blink when the going gets tough. But can she trust her ultra-secretive client when a suspect turns up dead?

One False Move and This Prof’s Headed for a Fall.

Now Carlotta must zero in on Boston’s mean streets and talk her way into Harvard’s inner sanctums, uncovering in the process just how intertwined the two are - and just how deadly the stakes can be...

Critic Reviews

“No question: Carlotta’s tenth case is her best to date. Edgar nominators, take note.” (Kirkus Reviews starred review)
“Carlotta Carlyle combines the sensitivity of Robert Parker’s Spenser with the stubbornness of Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski, and she’s rapidly carving out a place of her own.” (Chicago Tribune)
