Overview

When grad student Dulcie Schwartz thinks she hears a wolf late one night, on her way to pick up some forgotten papers from her departmental office, she tries to dismiss it – but it’s too late for her peace of mind. The noises, the dark building and an unnerving sighting of her adviser – looking strangely unhuman in the moonlight – all combine to thoroughly give her the creeps.

But it is not until the next morning that Dulcie learns the disquieting truth: she was right to be spooked. A woman worryingly close to the university was savagely attacked, that very night. A woman who looks like Dulcie.

Aided by the cryptic advice from her kitten Esmé and the ghost of her late, great cat Mr Grey, Dulcie can’t stop herself from investigating, just a little . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With the lightheartedness and strong themes that characterize a cozy series with staying power, Simon delivers her winning combination of academic rivalries, student relationship drama, and kitty wisdom in the sixth Dulcie Schwartz mystery (after 2012’s True Grey). A student who closely resembles Dulcie is discovered, alive but with multiple throat wounds, in the same area of the Harvard campus where Dulcie heard howling and saw her harried thesis adviser, Martin Thorpe, looking strangely wild the night before. The gothic romance The Ravages of Umbria—a dark, cryptic novel that Dulcie is studying in hopes of attributing it to the anonymous author who is the subject of her thesis—frightens her even more, as do warning messages from her ghostly cat adviser Mr. Grey, as Dulcie tries to determine whether Martin is actually a dangerous werewolf. Excerpts from Dulcie’s melodramatic research project offer a delightful homage to 18th-century gothic fiction that also binds this whodunit to its historical predecessors. Agent: Colleen Mohyde, Doe Coover Agency. (July)

Booklist
“A must read . . . Should also be suggested to Lauren Willig and Jennifer Lee Carrell readers” on Grey Zone
Kirkus Reviews
A fascination with gothic novels colors a grad student's perception of a crime. Dulcie Schwartz is still working on her Ph.D. at an unnamed but prestigious university in Cambridge, Mass. In the university's Mildon collection, she's found passages from a novel she believes were written by the author on whom her dissertation focuses. When coed Mina Love, who looks a lot like Dulcie, is viciously attacked, Dulcie, who's in the vicinity, hears wolflike howls and sees her faculty advisor, Martin Thorpe, nearby looking very strange. Dulcie's determination to investigate redoubles once Mina's roommate, Emily, is also attacked, though she escapes with less serious injuries. Emily is sure the attacker is Mina's possessive boyfriend. But Dulcie still wonders about professor Thorpe, who's been acting very odd lately. It's no wonder that Dulcie's boyfriend, Chris, who works nights, is worried about Dulcie, since her only protection is the occasional apparition of her deceased cat, Mr. Grey, warning her of approaching trouble. Meanwhile, Dulcie's dreams are filled with scenes from the novel she is slowly piecing together. A visiting professor may have some papers that will help her if Dulcie can stay alive and continue her research. Simon's feline mysteries (True Grey, 2012, etc.), best read in the order in which they were written, show Dulcie's growing obsession with the fragments of a mysterious novel--a novel that presents a better mystery than her latest case.
