Murder never entered the picture until Fritz Van Derzee decided, at long last, to clear his name. Who stuck a jeweled stiletto into his desktop after stabbing him to death? Fritz’s daughter, Emma, recruits her former professor Lyssa Pennington to find the killer.

And where’s the ten million Fritz was falsely accused of embezzling? Tompkins College President, Justin Cushman, hires his old friend Kyle Pennington to trace the missing money.

While Lyssa uses charm and tenacity on the long list of suspects, Kyle reconstructs the college’s old homegrown finance system. As they converge on the killer, Lyssa and Kyle may be the next two casualties.

Review

Dive into a mystery with C.T. Collier. 

I loved the balance between the lives and personalities of the characters and the mystery they were dealing with. There is a lot going on and the characters have a lot they have to get through while trying to uncover clues.

The mystery elements in these novels are always very well done. Collier creates scenarios that are not easy to unravel and keep you invested throughout the entirety of the novel. I don't want to be able to figure everything out too early in a novel, I want to be surprised.



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 that draw inspiration from traditional whodunits. Her setting is entirely fictional: Tompkins College is no college and every college, and Tompkins Falls is a blend of several Finger Lakes towns, including her hometown, Seneca Falls, NY (AKA Bedford Falls from It’s a Wonderful Life).

So good to hear the plot kept you guessing and turning pages! It's gratifying to an author when the reader notices the links between the characters and the kinds of problems they tackle, as well as the skills they use to unravel the puzzle. Thanks so much for sharing your review with your readers! --c.t.collier
