Debts of Dishonor: An Imogen Quy Mystery by Jill Paton Walsh

Imogen Quy--rhymes with why--is the witty, compassionate, and relentlessly inquisitive college nurse at St. Agathas College, Cambridge University. Unfortunately, St. Agathas has seen better days: Its financial affairs are in shambles, and the school is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. That is, until billionaire financier and St. Agathas College alum Sir Julius Farran decides to pay his alma mater a visit. Things are looking up for St. Agathas....but when Sir Julius suddenly dies in questionable circumstances, St. Agathas is in danger of closing forever. A nurse is a natural receiver of confidences, and Imogen soon learns that Sir Julius had far more enemies than friends. Her curiosity is initially piqued, but soon turns to alarm when Juliuss equally unpleasant son-in-law is found murdered. The case takes on particular urgency because Imogens former flame, Andrew Duncombe, had been working as Sir Juliuss right-hand man. Imogen must work what out really happened before Andrew is implicated in the murders--or becomes the next victim. In her first case in more than a decade, Imogen Quy calls upon her clear thinking and insight into human nature to seek not only truth but justice. Readers will delight in the return of this exemplary amateur sleuth (Publishers Weekly) from a brilliant novelist in the best tradition of Dorothy L. Sayers andJosephine Tey.
