The bestselling author of the Joe Sandilands investigations, whisks readers to 1920s Cambridge with a case to be solved by an ingenious new sleuth. Great Britain, 1923: Detective Inspector John Redfyre is a godsend to the Cambridge CID. When Redfyre is invited to attend the annual St. Barnabas College Christmas concert, he is expecting a quiet evening. But when he arrives, he witnesses a minor scandal: Juno Proudfoot, the trumpeter of the headlining musical duo, is a woman, and a young one at that - practically unheard of in conservative academic circles. When she suffers a near-fatal fall after the close of the show, Redfyre must consider whether someone was trying to kill her.
