Description: Still untenured, and therefore on shaky academic ground, feisty young Professor Pelletier finds herself going head-to-head with the resident Edgar Allan Poe expert Elliot Corbin, an academic windbag of monumental proportions who is lobbying to be appointed to the much-coveted, recently vacated Palaver Chair. So when Karen receives a serendipitous bonanza in the form of never-before-seen manuscripts and journals by the nineteenth-century poet Emmeline Foster, who is rumored to have killed herself for the love of Poe, Corbin is predictably put out.

Subsequently, the corrosive Corbin is shot to death in his office on Thanksgiving Day. Karen has an airtight alibi, but other suspects abound -- from the head of the women's studies program, who also pined for the Palaver Chair, to Visiting Poet Jane Birdwort, to the perpetually disgruntled department secretary, to any one of the students who had been complaining about Corbin.

Then Karen's office is ransacked, and a number of the Emmeline Foster journals are stolen, so it looks more and more as if Corbin's death may be inextricably entwined with the muse of his life -- poet of the macabre Edgar Allan Poe.

As she did in her first two novels, Joanne Dobson uses a savvy insider's knowledge of college politics and a considerable talent for complex plotting to produce a witty and eminently satisfying entertainment.
