The third installment in The Agatha Award-winning St. Just Mystery Series
Beg, borrow…or kill!
St. Michael’s College, Cambridge, is prestigious, stately – and in frightful disrepair. To replenish its dwindling coffers, the College’s Master holds a fundraising weekend for wealthy alums. But all goes awry when the glamorous – and despised – Lexy Laurant is found strangled on the grounds. There’s a lengthy list of likely suspects: Lexy’s debt-ridden Latino lover, her titled ex-husband who left her for another woman, and a garrulous oil-rich Texan with something to hide, among others.
As Detective Chief Inspector St. Just weighs clashing egos, he discovers unsavoury secrets…and a shocking twist.
