Murder, mystery and books. For fans of Agatha Christie and M.C.Beaton, A Death at the University is the first book in a new cosy crime series.

Sam Wiseman runs an independent bookshop in the heart of Montreal. He leads a simple life, until the day he apprehends a shoplifter and strikes up an unlikely friendship with Gaston Lemieux, the investigating officer in the case.

Later, when Sam discovers the body of professor Harold Hilliard - a long-time customer of the store - dead in his office at nearby McGill University, he is implicated in the murder. With the help of his new friend Lemieux, as well as his love of literature, Sam must investigate the murder, and clear his name . . .

' . . . keeps its reader guessing until the very end. The books grabs hold of the reader's attention quickly and never lets go. It remains engaging, fast-paced and finely written throughout.' The Chronicle-Herald

    A fast, easy read!

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I really enjoyed this story and the characters. The storyline was very interesting and I breezed right through it. I highly recommend this cosy mystery and look forward to reading more books by this author!
