Abstract:

One late-summer's evening, before the beginning of the new term, Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired police detective Alan Newbitt, are guests at Sherebury University art department's drinks party to introduce the new teaching assistant sculptress Gillian Roberts. However, tragedy strikes on a tour of the art department, when the lift breaks down ans a corpse is discovered at the bottom of the shaft. Dorothy and Alan become involved in the ensuing investigation, putting their local knowledge and sleuthing skills to good use once again. But when another member of the art faculty goes missing and someone receives threatening phone calls, it seems the killer still has something to hide and may very well strike again.
