Amateur sleuth Nick Hoffman, an English professor, finds his career and his happy menage with writer Stefan Borowski suddenly threatened by the turmoil spreading around Kildare. Where does it all lead? Scandal and murder, of course.

Funny, well written, typical Lev style; likes to "hear himself", otherwise, enjoyable.
Academe has never had a chronicler as funny as Raphael, whose Nick Hoffman books are always a delight. First there's the narrator's witty, confiding, very human voice. Then there's the vast array of Dickensian characters. Add the hothouse atmosphere of any university and Raphael's clever plots that keep you guessing. I love everything about the series and this particular book, not least the relationship that's at its core. I'd stack this up against Moo and Small World any day.
