    This book felt very strange to me The dialogue was stilted and there was a lot of repetition of information from scene to scene that made the mystery feel as though it were being solved very slowly I liked the university atmosphere and the reference to the Cotsen Children s Library, which I have visited, but McLeod was not an especially likable main character and I never really bought her reasoning for getting involved in clearing her student of murder in the first place It also annoyed me th This book felt very strange to me The dialogue was stilted and there was a lot of repetition of information from scene to scene that made the mystery feel as though it were being solved very slowly I liked the university atmosphere and the reference to the Cotsen Children s Library, which I have visited, but McLeod was not an especially likable main character and I never really bought her reasoning for getting involved in clearing her student of murder in the first place It also annoyed me that she kept commenting on how little she understood about science Surely someone who teaches at Princeton and who specifically teaches students to write nonfiction, would have some ability to read and understand new scientific concepts In any case, this was a random selection from a book sale, and I ll be donating my copy in the hopes that someone else will give it aloving home It was not my cup of tea and I feel no need to look for the earlier books of the series

    While I have been looking forprofessor sleuths, this was not the answer to my quest The story is very disconnected, and written oddly characters repeat things often, sometimes within two lines, and there s no buildup of tension Things just happen, and they aren t particularly believable Then, to top it off, the main character doesn t actually solve the mystery It was just a strange book, and not in a good way.

  4. Ramona Ramona says:

    This is my first read of an Ann Waldron mystery So, I see I am starting with book 5 I enjoyed the main characters but would love to knowabout them The crazy way McLeod goes about figuring out the mystery is half the fun, with the food tie in and personal stuff rounding the story out I look forward to finding the other 4 books and reading them, too

  7. Melody Melody says:

    A simple, silly book The plot isn t particularly gripping or anything, but it s fun to read because it references places and things that are familiar from my time at Princeton Also, apparently one of my friends there was involved in helping the author, since he got a big shout out in her acknowledgements who knew

    Professor McLeod Dulany s unassuming star student, Greg Pierre, actually is assuming a false name, that is When the student who outed him is found murdered, suspicion falls on Pierre But McLeod believes in Pierre s innocence, and now must trace the clues left behind to find a killer s true identity.Very enjoyable.Book

  9. Angie Angie says:

    As with most stories in this genre, it s a bit unbelievable that the police would divulge so much information about a criminal investigation to a civilian, but it s a quick and fun diversion This is the only book I ve read in the series, but I enjoyed it.

    Another Princeton mystery with McLeod DeLaney A quick and enjoyable read.
