As a rule, bigamists don t gravitate to the biochemistry department of sleepy Knotlington University, and Dr Patrick Carey, senior lecturer, is, it would seem, no exception Eyebrows are raised, however, when a letter addressed simply to Professor Carey, Knotlington U , ends up on his desk a letter that comes, it is widely known, from a woman claiming to be Dr CareyAs a rule, bigamists don t gravitate to the biochemistry department of sleepy Knotlington University, and Dr Patrick Carey, senior lecturer, is, it would seem, no exception Eyebrows are raised, however, when a letter addressed simply to Professor Carey, Knotlington U , ends up on his desk a letter that comes, it is widely known, from a woman claiming to be Dr Carey s wife Dr Carey has abandoned her to a state of abject poverty, she claims, and she is none too happy about it.Patrick immediately suspects the involvement of his unstable younger brother, David, a chronic liar who has been known to assume identities other than his own, and he fears trouble Trouble duly arrives when the woman turns up on Patrick s doorstep Someone in the department must have given her his address But who among his colleagues could dislike Patrick and his wife enough to cause them such embarrassment.Just when things to be settling down again, someone sets fire to Patrick s boss s house, and the deserted wife is found dead in the ruins, actually locked in the study Then the boss himself is murdered, practically on Patrick s doorstep The key to the locked room is found in his flat, and the blunt object that killed his boss came from his own laboratory.Could David be the killer Or perhaps one of Patrick s colleagues Could at least one of the murders have been a mistake Patrick must find out if he is to save his career and clear his brot

  2. A typical mayhem and mystery type story neither bad nor really notbale in any significant way For some the ending might be utterly redictable I was able to get it right or wrong I like a mystery novel to twist me around a leave me guessing until the end and this one just didn t do that.


  3. Her books are page turners, but after you finish, there is a feeling as of eating cotton candy enjoyable at the time but not much substance Perfect escape reading.


  4. Good story Full of suspects, although I was pretty sure early on that I knew who it was Not for those who want a tough complicated mystery, just a cosy fun read I enjoy Ms Ferrars books.
