BeschreibungCanadian historian Gillian Adams finds herself back in Cambridge to enjoy that lovely city and her romance with Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector Edward Gisborne. Then the death of a research fellow in the Department of Chemistry shocks both the university and the town.Gillian is linked to the victim through old friends and to the police through Edward. Well-placed to investigate the murder, she turns up evidence of venomous professional rivalries and at least one clandestine liaison. Not to mention that the victim, a volunteer at the Pregnancy Information Service, was herself pregnant.Then a second body turns up. There is no compelling evidence to link the victims. As the police siti the facts, Gillian looks at the crimes from a feminist perspective, seeing that that science, contemporary mores, and more conservative traditions have produced a volatile -- indeed, fatal -- mixture....
