Elena Weaver, in her skimpy dresses and bright jewellery, exuded intelligence and sexuality. A student at St Stephen's College, Cambridge, she lived a life of casual but intense physical and emotional relationships, with scores to settle and targets to achieve. Until someone, lying in wait on the bank of the River Cam, where Elena went running every morning, bludgeoned the young woman to death. Called into the rarefied world of academia, Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner Barbara Havers find a tangled skein of love, obsession and desire -- a maelstrom of emotion that has claimed Elena Weaver's life.

A young student at St. Stepen's College, the daughter of a professor up for a prestigious post, is found brutally murdered on an isolated jogging path. Unwilling to turn the killing over to the local police, the university call sin New Scotland Yard. Thus Lynley and his partner Havers enter the rarified world of Cambridge University, where academic gowns often hide murderous intentions. For both officers, the true identity of Elena Weaver proves as elusive as the mythical creature whose image decorated her dorm room. Not until they come to terms with the woman she was will they have a line on the killer -- who just may kill again.About the Author:
