By Frequent Anguish

(1981)
(The first book in the Neil Kelly Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
 
Professor Neil Kelly is passionate about language, passionate about his scholarly work on John Donne, passionate about teaching at his venerable New England college. But with his wife dead these several years, he's resigned himself to the belief that his chance for more personal passions . . . has passed. He's reckoned, however, without the vibrant, brilliant Priscilla Lacey, his prize student and the daughter of his oldest friend. Incredibly, Priscilla has fallen wildly in love with him, and with a mixture of joy and terror Kelly has begun allowing her ardor to thaw his emotional frost. When Priscilla is murdered, Kelly roars to life, abandoning his scholarly pursuits and turning his ferocious intellect to the task of tracking down her killer. "Murder is often employed as a peg on which to hang a story," said the San Diego Union-Tribune, "but in By Frequent Anguish it becomes what it actually is: a gut-wrenching, world-shattering tragedy for all concerned, including the murderer." The 1st Neil Kelly mystery
