Rodford, E. G., The Bursar's Wife

Kocharyan is a private detective based in Cambridge. When he is approached by the glamorous Sylvia Booker, the wife of the bursar of Morley College, to help investigate her daughter’s suspicious behaviour, a series of strange events unfold: an unfaithful wife is found dead and Sylvia’s husband commits suicide. A mild stabbing and the unwanted intervention of female police DI Stubbings cause George to wonder if all the threads are connected...
