Fiction, Mystery

Professor Hilary Tamar is once again called upon to help the covey of young lawyers solve a mystery... in this case, that of a murder that has been accepted as an accident. Not quite at stake is a literal fortune, because it was not the heiress who was killed, but her little-cared-for cousing. But Julia— remember Julia? She of the scatter-brained not-really-a-murderess history?— has great faith in Professor Tamar's deductive powers, and is unwilling to let a possible murder pass.

Especially if the heiress is the intended target.

The hijinks are much sillier in this novel, and usually told so matter-of-factly that the ludicrous nature of the situation could be easily lost if you're not paying attention, so read carefully.
