skullduggery in the Englaish department of Canterbury College-copycat murders from great works of literature.

Pretty typical academic mystery from the mid-80s; it's written better than a lot of similar mysteries, but the story is pretty far-fetched.

English course syllabus is being used as a how-to-manuel-for murder.

Thriller with nice touches of humor, academic satire, and psychological portraiture.

The English department at Canterbury College is shrinking - and the profs aren't resigning, they're being removed by a vicious killer. Newly arrived Roz Howard (replacement for deceased colleague) has to work fast before she's included on the list of former teachers. Lots of humor, academic satire and interesting characters.
