Great Britain, 1923: The Cambridge CID’s Detective Inspector John Redfyre is suspicious when his Aunt Henrietta invites him to attend a college Christmas concert in her stead. An attempt at matchmaking, perhaps? But he arrives to witness a minor scandal: The trumpeter of the headlining musical duo is a woman, and a young one at that—practically unheard of in conservative university circles. When she suffers a near-fatal fall after the close of the show, Redfyre must consider whether someone was trying to kill her. There are a host of potential motives, from her musical talent to her gender and beauty. But the would-be killer hasn’t given up, and she’s not the only target for murder—will Redfyre be able to navigate Cambridge’s tight-lipped academic set and catch his man before more innocents fall victim?
