Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Bergdorf Blondes takes us back to the decadent 1980s in this comic murder mystery set in the tony world of Oxford University.

It's 1985, and at Oxford University, Pimm's, punting, and ball gowns are de rigeur. Ursula Flowerbutton, a studious country girl, arrives for her first term anticipating nothing more sinister than days spent poring over history books in gilded libraries - and, if she's lucky, an invitation to a ball.

But when she discovers a glamorous classmate on a chaise longue with her throat cut, Ursula is catapulted into a murder investigation.

Determined to bag her first scoop for the famous student newspaper Cherwell, Ursula enlists the help of trendsetting American exchange student Nancy Feingold to unravel the case. While navigating a whirl of black-tie parties and secret dining societies, the girls discover a surfeit of suspects. From brokenhearted boyfriends to snobby Sloane Rangers, lovelorn librarians to dishy dons, none can be presumed innocent - and Ursula's investigations mean that she may be next on the murderer's list.

Clueless meets Agatha Christie in this wickedly funny tale of high society and low morals, the first book in Plum Sykes' irresistible new series.

    "Excruciatingly YA"

    1.47 hours in, I have listened to the 13-year-old narrator's high pitched voice give detailed descriptions, from head to toe, of each and every character, major, minor, and passing in the street. There has been zero development to capture or hold a reader's attention. I wish the blurb had explained that I was purchasing a book suitable for a 7th grader (maybe; depends on the 7th grader), and I would have skipped it.
