Christopher Townsend, Development Officer of Bartlemas College, was reportedly drunk when he plunged from the top of the Tower of Grace. His tragic death does, however, lead to an offer of work for novelist Kate Ivory - finishing Townsend's preparations for the 'Gender and Genre' study fortnight. Kate is doing Bartlemas a favour by taking his place - so why do her new colleagues seem so hostile towards her? And who left the note on one of Christopher's files which reads CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT? When Kate receives some threatening messages of her own, she begins to wonder if Christopher's death was an accident after all. Perhaps he had stumbled on to something he shouldn't have. And perhaps, by stepping into his shoes, Kate has now put her own life in terrible danger...

When the development officer of an Oxford College falls to his death from the top of a tower, reportedly drunk, novelist Kate Ivory is recruited to complete his work. The frosty reception she faces from her new colleagues and the msterious, threatening note she uncovers in his papers alerts Kate to foul play. She knows she is in danger when she starts to get some similar notes herself... Stallwood's fourth novel based in Oxford is utterly compelling. (Kirkus UK)
