Summary

Booker shortlisted author Jill Paton Walsh returns with the second Imogen Quy mystery. 

Biography is usually a safe profession. Even rather sedate. But more than one biographer has found that writing about the late great mathematician Gideon Summerfield leads to a hasty retreat. Or something more deadly.... 

Imogen Quy, the coolly competent college nurse at St. Agatha's College, Cambridge, first notices the pattern when her enthusiastic lodger Fran becomes the latest Summerfield biographer. Before she realises how deadly the Summerfield secret is, Fran's life is in danger. And Imogen may be next....

Starts out well

This is the second try for a Paton Walsh crime story. I based this on previous good reviews. I find, like the first book, the story starts out interesting and then is filled with stuffing and could be a third shorter in length. I gave up. I will not be buying a third one.

a pleasant listening

quite appealing characters and some very interesting, original aspects; rather spoiled by an unlikely ending.
