Summary

From the Ivory Tower…

Harvard professor Wilson Chaney has a secret and somebody knows it. His adulterous affair with a freshman ended just weeks before she wound up dead. The sole trace of his infatuation is a stack of missing love letters - and they’ve fallen into the wrong hands…

To the Grave.

Carlotta Carlyle takes the case to find his blackmailer and retrieve the letters. Six-foot-one and red-haired, this private eye doesn’t blink when the going gets tough. But can she trust her ultra-secretive client when a suspect turns up dead?

One False Move and This Prof’s Headed for a Fall.

Now Carlotta must zero in on Boston’s mean streets and talk her way into Harvard’s inner sanctums, uncovering in the process just how intertwined the two are - and just how deadly the stakes can be...

Critic reviews

“No question: Carlotta’s tenth case is her best to date. Edgar nominators, take note.” ( Kirkus Reviews starred review)
“Carlotta Carlyle combines the sensitivity of Robert Parker’s Spenser with the stubbornness of Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski, and she’s rapidly carving out a place of her own.” ( Chicago Tribune)
