What a ride! The tale takes place in the past and the present, passing the two stories back and forth easily. There are of course many similarities in the stories, and both star the intelligent Alex and the sinister but even more intelligent Richard Aldiss, her mentor and teacher.

In the past she takes his night class and works on a puzzle to exonerate her professor of the murder charges that keep him in prison. The night class is taught by Richard from prison, making those scenes very tense and mysterious.

In the present her old classmates join her to mourn the death of one of their own. And the mystery continues, as the now free but still creepy Dr. Aldiss insists that someone from the night class committed the murder.

Well-written and fast-paced, it's an intelligent mystery. As the book goes on, the chapters get shorter and shorter, creating a sense of urgency as Alex is in danger in both the past and present.

I would recommend the novel highly.
