The Cambridge Plot
From Shelf: What To Read After The Thursday Murder Club Series
Rosy Gilchrist and her sidekicks, Felix Smythe and Professor Cedric Dillworthy, are visiting Cambridge to attend preparations for the unveiling of a statue. But plans for the statue are far from set in stone, and the meddling Gloria is determined to see it created by another artist. It's inconvenient, then, when he turns up dead...
Dedicating a monument to an eminent member of a Cambridge college should be a simple matter of course, but plans for a statue honouring Sir Percival Biggs-Brookby are far from set in stone and the committee face many obstacles to decision-making - not least among themselves. Despite already commissioning an artist to complete the work, the meddling daughter of the deceased is determined to enlist her own sculptor to create the statue. It's convenient for her, then, when the university's chosen candidate turns up dead . . . Felix Smythe and Professor Cedric Dillworthy, a benefactor to the project, are invited to Cambridge to participate in the preparations. Unbeknownst to them, Rosy Gilchrist is also there, attending a reunion at Newnham College. As the search for answers intensifies, the diplomatic veneers of the Cambridge alumni begin to rot away, and Rosy and her associates find themselves reluctant partners once more, determined to carve the truth from the lies.
