Florida journalist McLean Dulaney returns for her seconde adventure at Princeton University. She investigates -- mostly by asking nosy questions -- the murder of the school's female president. I am enjoying this series, but wish she wouldn't make so many wrong accusations before arriving (in this case accidentially and dangerously) at the answer.

This is very interesting series involving Princeton University and those who study and attempt to instruct there - as well as some with other motives altogether.

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist McLeod Dulaney is delighted to be back on the lovely Princeton campus, teaching a writing class. But a dark cloud falls over the ivied halls when college president Melissa Faircloth suddenly goes missing. The administration wants to keep it quiet, especially the provost, who - as the most unpopular man on campus - was about to be fired. And there are others who might have wanted her out of the way, like those who couldn't abide a female Princeton president... and Faircloth's ex-husband, a man devoted to martinis, failure, and making trouble for his former wife. When the president's body is finally discovered - in her private office closet - McLeod must find out who put her on permanent sabbatical.

Really good characters and a strong plot. Plus lots of local color. The blurb tells the story: When Princeton's first female president is strangled, Professor McLeod Delaney must face the administration's stonewalling and a host of shady suspects to discover who placed her highly-esteemed former colleague on permanent sabbatical.
