A dinner party at England’s Oxford University is interrupted by an arrow shot that sends Nancy on a strange journey through the school’s medieval corridors. She must find out the meaning of a clue left behind, a black rose. The search for answers moves Nancy to explore the life—and death—of Dame Gwyneth Davies, the famous mystery writer and playwright. And as Nancy draws back a veil of family secrets, she uncovers a real-life drama that could end in tragedy.

{spoilers!}Awesome book! I am especially fond of ND books that center around secret symbols with hidden meanings, so I was sure this one would hold my attention. I was more then pleased with the story. The vagueness of the note on the arrow, combined with the abundence of black rose symbols Nancy finds, makes it all very interesting and curious. And I was totally shocked when it was revealed that Simon was related the the late Dame Gwyneth, and was the sole heir! My mind immediately went reeling with so many different possibilites... Which is one of the things I love about reading the ND books, I am able to really think and focus on the storyline as a detective would, not just a reader. It makes the reading experience that much better.

I loved the book, it was amazing... but theres one question that keeps nagging me... WARNING: BOOK MYSTERY SPOILER REVIEW AHEAD!!! IF YOU HAVENT READ THE BOOK! DONT READ THE RES OF TGE COMMENT!! IT WILL SPOIL THE STORY!!! of course, if you read the book, go ahead, read it. So, turns out simons the cuprit, right? And Mr. Sunderwirth was innocent, he was just keeping an eye on Mrs. Innes. BUT why did Mr. Sunderwirth give Mrs. Innes the threatning letter? Nancy sees that the threatning letter she found while examining Mrs. Innes's office after the break-in looks exactly like the one Mr. Sunderwirth dropped, so that means it was from Mr. Sunderwirth, yet he is supposed to be innocent. But then it turns out that Simon was the one who sent that. Then why was Mr. Sunderwirth delivering it? I doubt he'd carry a letter with a skull and crossbones on it to a teacher from a student. So????? A mystery story shouldnt leave an odd point out in the resolution. I geuss the author didnt bother proofreading the story before publishing it. Too bad.
