Murders in the Ivory Tower
Two crime-fighting South-Asian cousins, Leela and Meena Rao are back on the scene of multiple killings in this compelling murder mystery by Kamakshi Murti, author of Murders Most Matronly. The cousins' ambition is to emulate Christie's Jane Marple - in this latest story, they become embroiled in a series of gruesome homicides.
After a bloody discovery at the prestigious Anderson College of star quarterback Sean O'Flaherty, staff and students are drawn into the lives of drug-consumed, Ivy League collegians. When a second body is found, that of a popular Zimbabwean TA in the African Studies department, the cousins must establish how and why these two students have become inextricably linked. As more killings come to light, they seem to point towards radicalism, but are they as straightforward as they seem or is someone trying to distract from the real motive?
Faced with a surfeit of suspects, will Leela and Meena be able to obtain justice for the heinous crimes and reveal the truth?
