It’s a lovely spring day in 1974 when distraught mother, Mary Corbett approaches P.I. Jennie Redhead for help. Mary believes her daughter, Linda, has been murdered, but no one, not the police or her husband believe her. Jennie is inclined to agree with them, but Mary is so distraught, she agrees to help. She has few leads, only a very old, very obscure poem, that will lead Jennie into some of the less hallowed halls of Oxford in her search for the truth. I liked the 1970’s vibe of this book, there’s something so appealing in remembering those days before smartphones, CODIS and AFIS.
