Research to die for?
Alicia is determined to return to academia after time off to care for her sick mother. An unlikely conference in sleepy Hobart town throws her into the path of Professor Conneally, who offers her a dream job in Cambridge.
It seems the universe is on her side – until the professor drops dead at the conference dinner. Alicia's convinced it's no accident, but no one will believe her. Can she find the culprit before the conference is over? Or will she lose all her friends, and the opportunity of a lifetime?
Pull on your slippers, get cosy in your favourite chair, and spend an hour or two solving the mystery in beautiful Tasmania.
You never get to know much about the character and honestly, after 20 pages or so, you don't really care. All the chemistry is boring, unless you are a chemist, it's mumbo jumbo. No excitement, just tedious. It was difficult to continue reading this book and I cannot in good faith, recommend it.
