The Memorial Hall Murder by Jane Langton

I really enjoyed this mystery set at Harvard University. Each chapter begins with a snippet of music from Handel's Messiah (a performance of which figures heavily into the plot) and every so often there is a chapter from the supposed murder victim whom only the reader knows is not the one who died. Seeing how Homer Kelly, his wife, and a few Harvard students figure out what actually happened while also uncovering some other Harvard secrets is really entertaining and suspenseful. I didn't love this quite as much as Langton's children's books, but having read this book, I am curious about the others in the series and would like to read them at some point.
