Meet the Penningtons: Lyssa, Ph.D. Economics, and her husband "the handsome Brit" Kyle, Ph.D. Computer Science. When their clever minds ask questions, clever killers can't hide.

After a rough semester, Professor Lyssa Pennington just wants to post her grades and join her husband, Kyle, in Cornwall for Christmas. First, though, she's expected to host an elegant dinner for Emile Duval, the soon-to-be Chair of Languages at Tompkins College.

Too bad no one told Lyssa murder is on the menu. And, by the way, Emile Duval is an imposter.

Who is he really? And who wanted him dead? Without those answers, the Penningtons can kiss Christmas in Cornwall goodbye.

About the Author

C. T. Collier was born to solve logic puzzles, wear tweed, and drink Earl Grey tea. Her professional experience in cutthroat high tech and backstabbing higher education gave her endless opportunity to study intrigue. Add to that her longtime love of mysteries, and it’s no wonder she writes academic mysteries (The Penningtons Investigate) that draw inspiration from traditional whodunits.

Not having read the previous books in this series, I was able to follow this story quite well. It is a complicated, complex murder mystery. There are some adult subjects or themes, but all is tastefully presented. Unlike many mysteries, while relationships are discussed, and make significant difference to the story, I would not say there is a romantic element to this book. It is strictly a crime novel. The main story takes place on a college campus with plenty of rivalries and academic political confrontations and disagreements. When a department chair is found dead and a replacement must be assigned in short order, tensions run high. Secrets are revealed. Friendships and loyalties are tested. An intense read with plenty of surprises.

I enjoyed this book enormously. I came into the series here at the third book. While I could tell there was a history with the other characters, I in no way felt it impedes the story by having not read the other two before reading this one. I do intend to read the first two because I truly enjoyed the characters and the way the mysteries unfolded. The story involves a lot of different parts, and just when you think you have it all figured out, a new clue appears and completely changes everything. 5 out of 5 Stars for me!!
