Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Professor Neil Kelly is passionate about language, about his scholarly work on John Donne, about teaching at his venerable New England college. But with his wife long dead, he's resigned himself to the belief that his chance for more personal passions...has passed. He's reckoned, however, without his prize student, the vibrant, brilliant Priscilla Lacey. Incredibly, Priscilla has fallen wildly in love with him, and with a mixture of joy and terror Kelly has begun allowing her ardor to thaw his emotional frost. When Priscilla is murdered, Kelly roars to life, turning his ferocious intellect to the task of tracking down her killer. Murder is often employed as a peg on which to hang a story, said the San Diego Union, but in By Frequent Anguish it becomes what it actually is: a gut-wrenching, world-shattering tragedy for all concerned. * An academic mystery with all the wit, literary allusion, campus lore and graceful writing that one could desire - Library Journal *A superb pick for fans
