All is not well at Cambridge University's St. Ethelreda's College. The head of the English Department is dead, and Professor Cassandra James is appointed the task of running the department. Faced with the choice of whipping her underperforming colleagues into shape or losing the much-needed funding for the program, Cassandra resigns herself to the challenge. However, when she stumbles upon the former head's private papers and realizes that the death was no accident, Cassandra is forced to use her academic expertise of solving obscure literary puzzles for a very different purpose: tracking down a killer.

"During her maternity leave, Cambridge professor Cassandra James gets involved in a production of East Lynne and soon discovers that there is as much drama behind the scenes as there is on stage." "The director is desperate to revive his flagging career, and the maker of a fly-on-the-wall documentary is equally desperate to launch his. As tension escalates, the crisis is reached when the leading lady Melissa disappears right before the opening night. Cassandra suspects it is more than just stage fright, for Melissa has left behind her six-month-old daughter. Someone close at hand is not what they seem, and as Cassandra struggles to uncover the truth, she is led deeper and deeper into a maze of illusion and deceit."--BOOK JACKET.
