Who is Verity? That becomes the central question for American Nora Tierney, who has moved into her new Oxford home with her fiancé, DI Declan Barnes, and her young son. Declan’s new case at Exeter College coincides with a frantic call from Nora’s stepsister, Claire Scott: a fellow graduate student as died in a fall, and Claire begs Nora to help her prove her friend didn’t commit suicide. The sisters conduct their own snooping, while Declan and his team juggle this death with a cold case that proves to be more surprising than Declan cold ever imagine. Nicola Upson, author of the Josephine Tey series, raves: “This is a fine addition to a wonderful series. Graff delivers her trademark blend of compelling mystery, vivid setting, and engaging characters—and in Nora Tierney she has created a sleuth whose humanity and insight are the stars of the show. I loved it.” And Anne Cleeland, author of the Acton and Doyle series, notes: “A compelling victim, and a murder that hits a little too close to home for Nora and Declan’s peace of mind. Graff weaves an intricate web of past and present secrets, against the literary backdrop of Oxford University. A perfect detective story.” While Margaret Murphy, bestselling crime author, raves about this book and series: The Nora Tierney series is such a joy! While Marni Graff doesn’t shy away from the devastating effects of violent crime, there is a rich and heartwarming vein of community, compassion, and friendship in her novels. A stalwart Anglophile, Marni Graff’s love of British crime fiction shines through on every page. A real treat!”
