AN ENCHANTING COZY MYSTERY FROM A BESTSELLING AUTHOR

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Not just a nod but a full-on curtsy to the Golden Age of detective stories. I can’t recommend highly enough.” Ashley M.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Dams never fails to entertain . . . with characters that come alive while you’re reading.” Mystery Queen

An undergraduate prank or the tell-tale taint of murder?

Dorothy Martin’s instincts have never failed her yet. Until now — here in St Stephen’s College, Cambridge. The place is a maze of halls and walls and doors.

Dorothy should be able to find her way out. Instead she must admit to being hopelessly lost.

Panic rising in her chest, she reaches for any door handle she can grasp. She stumbles into a lab. But she’s not alone.

A flash of white coat, slipping through the exit.
A pool of blood at her feet.


Dorothy races from the scene. Minutes later, she returns with help — but the floor has already been scrubbed clean.

Did she just witness the ultimate crime?

Perfect for fans of Stella Cameron, Faith Martin, Agatha Christie, Frances Evesham, Betty Rowlands, or M.C. Beaton.

THE DETECTIVE
