When his beloved copy of the Oxford English Dictionary falls from its perch and cracks the skull of Professor Parkinson, few of his colleagues seem to notice—and fewer seem to mind. Did it jump or was it pushed? Only Erica Duncan, a newly appointed Assistant Professor of English, questions the events surrounding the mysterious death of the resident medievalist, a topic that her colleagues studiously avoid.
Talented author Laura Shea gives us a look behind the scenes into the jealousies and jockeying for position on the staff of a university. A well-told tale with realistic characters driving the story.
