American Anglophile Dorothy Martin tackles a tricky puzzle in the historic university town of Cambridge. Dorothy Martin isn't overly enthusiastic when her husband, retired police detective Alan Nesbitt, invites her to accompany him to a conference in Cambridge, picturing cramped student accommodation. But St. Stephen's turns out to be recently renovated, and, bolstered by en suite facilities, Dorothy is looking forward to exploring the historic and beautiful city. It is not long, though, before disaster strikes: lost in the maze of college buildings, Dorothy stumbles into a laboratory...and is shocked to find what looks like a pool of blood on the floor. She flees, to fetch help, but when Alan checks it out, there is nothing to be found. Was she mistaken? Or has a terrible crime been committed? Dorothy, who can never resist a puzzle, determines to find out.

I enjoy many of the author's stories but oh my, how she can stretch out piddly details that go on and on and on. i finally had to let go of this one. It appears that the author got lost in her own story. Where on earth was the proof reader!!!

If you chose to read this, "suspend disbelief" and try to enjoy the characters and setting. Dorothy Martin, an American senior married to a retired British police detective fails to convince as an amateur sleuth - although perhaps the author should promote Dorothy's apparent ESP abilities. No logic involved as the plot advances toward the scrambled conclusion.
