really liked it
bookshelves: british, mystery
Read from August 22 to 26, 2010 — I own a copy

Another dependably good mystery featuring the British team of Brock and Kolla. Kolla has been promoted and gets her first murder investigation to head -- but it's a rather odd one. Marion Summers, a twenty-something graduate student, dies of arsenic poisoning while doing research at a London library. It's not entirely clear whether this is murder or suicide, and as Kolla looks deeper into Marion's life, she finds all sorts of secrets. I did like the way Marion's research topic -- concerning the pre-Raphaelites like Dante Gabriel Rosetti and William Morris -- tied into the murder investigation.
