VINE VOICEon 5 February 2012
A murder whodunnit? set in the campus of a New England university. Kevin Boyle is the passionate English lecturer full of 'Hibernian charm' who gets his head smashed in with a poker after only a couple of pages.

The author provides us with a steady stream of suspects before the real detection is undertaken by a local hack journalist and his new campus girlfriend Kate Innes. Kate is quite a spunky gal 'as hard-boiled as a City editor'. She phlegmatically accepts her beau describing her as 'chubby' and his disdain of her grubby dungarees.

The cast list are a wacky bunch ranging from a 'colourless' junior, a lecturer with 'broad possessive buttocks' and a devoted acolyte who 'would black the boots' of the victim.

This would be a very mundane offering if it were not for the 'twist' at the end. The twist is good and the book is reasonably short; a fair trade-off.
