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.
