Joseph  (bluemanticore) | 906 comments The George Eliot Murders by Edith Skom
Professor Beth Austin is an expert on 19th century novels and a born sleuth. Taking along George Eliot's Middlemarch on her Hawaiian vacation was pure serendipity, for Beth never dreamed the classic novel could help her solve a crime. Stumbling upon a gruesome murder, Beth observes Eliot's brilliant character studies coming to life in those close to the crime.
