Über diesen Titel


Cambridge University don Maureen Helmont was found murdered. But Maureen seemed an unlikely sort to meet a violent end: Affectionately known as the "Merry Widow" by her academic colleagues, the attractive and charming woman was universally well liked. Why then was she smothered to death in her sleep?
It soon becomes apparent that Maureen kept many secrets. The university lecturer and authority on the Brontes was also the pseudonymous author of a series of explicit romantic novels, as well as of her own yet-to-be published amorous memoirs. As the police discover, between these dual lives the "Merry Widow" made at least one lethal enemy.

From Publishers Weekly:

Relying more on its puzzle pieces-assorted crimes, plot twists, action scenes and a dash of psychological complication-than character development, the American debut of this British writer lacks heart. Detective Chief Inspector Sidney Walsh of the Cambridgeshire CID investigates the murder of Maureen Helmont, college tutor and pseudonymous author of steamy romances, in the convalescent home where she was recovering from a hysterectomy. Sociable (especially with married men) but "insular," Helmont told friends she would be vacationing in Holland, not in the hospital. Was she found out and killed by the person who recently ransacked her apartment or someone mentioned in the kiss-and-tell memoirs her publisher requested? Or by the moonstruck pest who was chased away by another admirer or by a relative impatient for a substantial inheritance? Walsh and his staff conduct inquiries in a style so mundane that their findings seem almost fantastic. They aren't quick enough to prevent a second murder but come to understand that if they have their villain right, a third could be in the offing.
