Nan Weaver was the fist member of her Catholic working class family to attend college. Now she's an assistant professor at the University of California at Berkeley. The main thing on her mind is obtaining tenure. The very last thing on her mind is becoming the prime suspect in a murder investigation. But that's exactly what happens when circumstantial evidence links Nan - an outspoken feminist - to the murder of a boorish, sexist male colleague.
Nan is encouraged by the loyal support of her family, friends, students and co-workers. What has her worried, though, is the noticeable absence of the one person she believes can really help her; the attractive female graduate student whom Nan suspects knows a lot more about the murder than she's willing to admit.
A fun read.

"Murder in the English department is a classic. Nan Weaver was the first member of her family to attend college. Now here she is an assistant professor at the University of California at Berkeley, trying to obtaining tenure. When she becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation...not exactly what she planned.

An enjoyable read.
