Summary

Booker shortlisted author Jill Paton Walsh introduces us to popular detective Imogen Quy.  

The locked library of St Agatha's College, Cambridge, houses an unrivalled and, according to certain scholars, deeply uninteresting collection of 17th-century volumes. 

It also contains one dead student.  

Tragic and accidental, of course, even if malicious gossip hints that Philip Skellow had been engaged in stealing books rather than acquiring knowledge when he'd slipped, banged his head, and bled to death overnight.  

Only Imogen Quy, the college nurse, has her doubts - until another student is found, drowned in an ornamental fountain....

long awaited

I was delighted to see this much loved series on Audible. My only concern was that the reader wouldn't do the books justice - I needn't have worried, she was excellent.

New discovery

Having read and listened to Jill Paton Walsh’s collaborations with Dorothy L Sayers on the Whimsy books, I felt emboldened to try one of her own works. I am so glad I did! She did not disappoint and I now have the Isobel Quy books to savour. Looking forward to a good rich series.

A bit too cosy

All rather gentle, with not a great deal going on. Not for me. The reader did fine, only a few mispronunciations, but was not particularly inspiring.
