Death and The Visiting Fellow
Dark deeds and deception down under for Tudor Cornwall
When Doctor Tudor Cornwall, Reader in Criminal Studies at the University of Wessex, arrives for a semester as Visiting Fellow at his old friend’s university down under, he is met with a nasty surprise. Indeed the surprises keep coming and they get nastier as the plot unravels. An exotic cast of suspicious academics includes an ecologically-correct axeman, a professor of wine and the world’s leading authority on an esoteric form of Australian hedgehog. Then there is the student body to consider, too.
This mystery began as a homage to Michael Innes’s Death at the President’s Lodgings, written when he too was a visiting academic in Australia, but this sparkling novel is emphatically set in the twenty-first century.
