About the Book:
When young Walter finds a dead body along with the dead fish in his tutor’s fishpond, he knows he should tell his old master, Charles Murray of Letho. The dead man leaves a pretty wife and child and a broken string quartet, but someone must have profited by his death – could it be the avenger from his past as his widow fears, or is it someone from closer at hand? St. Andrews is once again the setting for a murder mystery, and a puzzle that Murray must solve before the murderer strikes again.

About the Author:
Lexie Conyngham is a historian living in the shadow of the Highlands. Her Murray of Letho novels are born of a life amidst Scotland’s old cities, ancient universities and hidden-away aristocratic estates, but she has written since the day she found out that people were allowed to do such a thing. Beyond teaching and research, her days are spent with wool, wild allotments and a wee bit of whisky.
Remarkable that I have not read a book in the series before. That is something that I will be sure to remedy soon. Thoroughly enjoyable characters with either Scottish or Irish accent. It takes getting used to but the words are fun.
I was fascinated by all of the interesting characters in the book. It was also a good mystery with many potential suspects. I will have to visit the town and characters again soon and read some of the earlier books.
I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
