A Piece of Justice Summary

A Piece of Justice: A Cosy Cambridge Mystery by Jill Paton Walsh

'Imogen Quy positively sparkles on the page as an amateur sleuth' - Sunday Express

What is the Summerfield secret?

Biography is usually a safe profession. But more than one biographer has found that writing about the late mathematician Gideon Summerfield has nasty consequences. Consequences that can sometimes be deadly.

Imogen Quy, the coolly competent nurse at St. Agatha's College, Cambridge, first notices the pattern when her enthusiastic lodger Fran becomes the latest Summerfield biographer. Before she realises how deadly the Summerfield secret is, Fran's life is in danger. And Imogen may be next . . .
