"A battered copy of Charlotte Brontė's Jane Eyre leads Professor Karen Pelletier to the long-forgotten novels of an obscure writer named Serena Northbury. When she decides to pen the author's biography, she sets off a raging controversy. Everyone, from her esteemed colleagues to her tyrannical department head, regards Northbury's 19th century writings as trash. But when the intrepid researcher stumbles upon a treasure trove of Northbury's papers - including what looks very much like an unpublished novel - Karen knows she cannot quit, for what could be more thrilling? Unfortunately, someone takes exception to Karen's penchant for digging up the past. Before long, she is the unlikely suspect in a homicide - and the target of an erudite killer who is poised to kill again."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
