About the book

image4.0/5.0

There’s a corpse on campus in this mystery from an Agatha Award finalist who’s “a rare breed of writer” (The Plain Dealer).   Melanie Travis loves her teaching job at Connecticut’s elite Howard Academy, where plans are underway for a Spring Pageant to honor the school’s fiftieth anniversary. Immersed in the preparations, Melanie is hurrying to retrieve a painting of one of the illustrious co-founders when she comes upon a disturbing scene: Eugene Krebbs, the Academy’s elderly caretaker, is arguing loudly with a girl half his size. Before Melanie can learn more than the girl’s first name—Jane—she disappears. It’s clear that Jane isn’t a student at Howard Academy, so what is she doing there? Melanie doesn’t have a chance to answer that question before more problems arise. Two days later, Krebbs is discovered stabbed to death right on the school grounds. Now Melanie is embroiled in a full-fledged homicide investigation as she tries to find out who’s added murder to the school's curriculum.   “Fans of Miranda James’ Cat in the Stacks series may also enjoy Berenson.”—Booklist  “If you like dogs, you’ll love Laurien Berenson’s Melanie Travis mysteries!”—Joanne Fluke, New York Times-bestselling author of the Hannah Swensen series
