Publisher's Summary

When mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance is invited to teach "The Three Great Ladies of the Mystery" class at Chastain Community College, the sometimes sleuth discovers that all is not strictly academic in Chastain's hallowed halls of learning. And when a shocking scandal in the school newspaper erupts in a suicide and two violent deaths, Professor Laurance enlists the talents of her new hubby, private eye Max Darling, and dons her thinking cap to probe intrigue and vengeance among Chastain's faculty.
Max and Annie, with dubious help from three of their own great ladies of the mystery - Annie's pixilated mother-in-law, a batty local dowager, and a Christie crime fanatic - learn that just about everyone at the school had means, motive, and access to the murder weapons. From the secretly boozing professor of advertising to the muscle-bound campus cad who barters passing grades for a little extracurricular activity, anyone on the faculty is a possible killer - waiting to strike again!

One of the best in the series

This one is typical of many in the series, but I particularly enjoyed it. I like that it explicitly touches the bases for the elements of a classical mystery. Annie teaches a class on the 3 grand dames of the golden age of mystery, and receives help from the 3 grand dames of the local counties.

A Little Class on Murder

One of the earlier books in the series; a fun read - I always like to try to solve the watercolor painting contest.
