Murder in Morningside Heights
Clever. Historical. Murder.
After spending his first few weeks as a private detective by investigating infidelities of the wealthy, Frank has a more serious case at hand.
Abigail Northrup of Tarrytown, New York, was her parents’ pride and joy. After graduating from a prestigious women’s college in Morningside Heights, she took a job there as an instructor. She also joined the ranks of the New Women, ladies planning for a life without a husband in which they make their own decisions and make a difference in the world. Unfortunately, her murder ended all that.
When the police declare the incident a random attack and refuse to investigate further, Abigail’s parents request Frank’s help. Of course, he’ll need Sarah’s assistance as she’s more familiar with the world of academia, and it will be far easier for her to interview the lady professors. Yet difficulties arise as they learn that Miss Northrup may have been an exemplary student and teacher, but she lived in a world of secrets and lies...
Murder in Morningside Heights was nominated for an Agatha Award® by Malice Domestic.
