When an unpleasant Cambridge don is poisoned by vintage port, Inspector Bunce of the Cambridge police must try to unravel a case involving rape, a recently discovered Shakespeare manuscript and a lot of professional envy. The plot is pleasant and entertaining until the last few chapters. The detective is easy to like and the Cambridge don who helps him is very nice, but the solution is very politically incorrect. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595209238, Paperback)

The life of scholarly contemplation enjoyed by the Fellows of Sheepshanks College, Cambridge, is shattered when the Pryevian Librarian collapses and dies at High Table owing to a slug of arsenic in his port, and the recently discovered holograph copy of Shakespeares earliest poem, Cupid and Psyche, is found to be missing from the college library. John Saltmarsh, a Sheepshanks Fellow and closet writer of detective novels, sets out to solve these conundrums. The waters are further muddied by a rapist who stalks the streets of Cambridge in an academic gown.
