Josephine Tey is in Cambridge, a town gripped by fear and suspicion as a serial rapist stalks the streets, and in the shadow of King’s College Chapel, Detective Chief Inspector Archie Penrose faces some of the most horrific and audacious murders of his career.

I approached reading this with caution, because I've previously found this series to be a bit ‘twee’. But all in all, this was a much better mystery than the ones I've read before. It's about a series of gruesome murders of several men who had been students at King’s College, Cambridge in 1913. It’s Book 7 of Upson’s Josephine Tey series so of course it’s DI Archie Penrose who’s investigating the deaths. The plot doesn't tax your brain and although the end is a bit weak I actually found it a very readable and satisfying murder mystery. Just right for a wet weekend in April!
