Reed Gallagher, the head of the School of Journalism at the university where Joanne Kilbourn teaches, is found dead in a seedy rooming house. He is dressed in women's lingerie, with an electric cord around his neck. Suicide, the police say. A clear case of accidental suicide. But for Joanne, who takes on the thankless task of breaking the news to Gallagher's wife, this death is just the first in a series of misfortunes that rock her life, both professional and personal.

There is something a bit too trite about this plot. We don't really know why the murder made the victim's death so scandalous ( erotic asphyxiation) and there is just so much sleaze in this small university town it beggars belief. Louse Penny has raised the bar on writing about small town murder mysteries. Gail writes as though she is churning out plots for the publisher, not for the reader's enjoyment.
