What to expect

Professor Emily Cavanaugh makes a horrific discovery while writing her book on Dostoevsky in the entertaining fourth Crime with the Classics story.

Professor Emily Cavanaugh has left Windy Corner behind and is back at Bede College on her sabbatical, determined to finish writing her book on Dostoevsky. She is soon reunited with one of her promising students, Daniel Razumov; as well as familiar faces on the teaching staff—her friend, Marguerite Grenier; her half-brother, Oscar Lansing; the abrasive division chair, Richard McClintock; and the predatory Taylor Curzon, known for her relentless pursuit of young male students—and Taylor now has Daniel firmly in her sights.

Emily knows Taylor must be stopped, but as she starts gathering evidence of Daniel’s harassment, she has a disturbing flashback, and then makes a gruesome discovery … Can Emily catch a dangerous campus killer while also confronting events from her own past?
