I was delighted to discover Catherine Aird a few years ago, although she has been writing for a number of years. Her books are well-written and I love her take on the partnership of a detective inspector and his constable---the one who would be the inspector's last choice. Parting Breath is a good sample of her work. I haven't read one that I didn't like, though.

This author writes good, clean, English mysteries.
The college dons at the University of Calleshire fully expected trouble when the students planned to shake their ivory tower with a sit-in at Almstone Hall. but no one expected the very peculiar theft from a dormitory room...or the very dead body in the college quadrangle. For Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan, the ivied halls hid a host of clues-from the words whispered with the dying man's parting breath to what a madrigal singer saw. So it was only a matter of time until he uncovered the murderer hidden in the groves of academe...but could he do it before death became another victim's alma mater?
