Jill Paton Walsh writes follow up books to the Dorothy L Sayers Peter Wimsey books. They always sound quite interesting but the one time I tried Dorothy L Sayers I couldn’t stand Wimsey, so I didn’t really want to read a follow up. But this is a book featuring characters of her own so I thought I’d try it. I’m not sure if that makes any sense really, but that’s how it was anyway!

This is a fairly old fashioned type of mystery even though it was written in the 1990s. Imogen Quy is the college nurse at St Agatha’s College, Cambridge and does some fairly gentle old fashioned type of investigating when a student is found dead on the floor of a locked library. It’s nothing ground breaking, it’s entertaining and I’ll probably read another in the series at some point.
