The latest instalment in the delightful Rosy Gilchrist cosy crime series that has received warm praise.
Dedicating a monument to an eminent member of a Cambridge college should be a simple matter of course, but despite already commissioning an artist to complete the work, the meddling daughter of the deceased is determined to enlist her own sculptor to create the statue. It's convenient for her, then, when the university's chosen candidate turns up dead....
Felix Smythe and Professor Cedric Dillworthy, a benefactor to the project, are invited to Cambridge to participate in the preparations. Unbeknownst to them, Rosy Gilchrist is also there, attending a reunion at Newnham College. As the search for answers intensifies, the diplomatic veneers of the Cambridge alumni begin to rot away, and Rosy and her associates find themselves reluctant partners once more, determined to carve the truth from the lies.
