In the midst of a legal wrangle among heirs, the single dissenter winds up dead. Did the dreary young woman fall off a roof, or was she pushed? To find out, the stuffy solicitors of said heirs engage an Oxford don, Professor Hillary Tamor, to ferret out the truth. The good professor, as interpreted by Eva Haddon, details the matter with keen observation, wit, and grace. Both author and narrator provide vivid characterization and ample humor, if not much suspense. An irritating distortion mars even moderately loud passages throughout.
