Description : When Martha Vineyard's favorite 92-year-old poet/sleuth Victoria Trumbull takes on a new role as adjunct professor at Ivy Green College, she thinks she’ll be introducing young minds to the pleasures and profundities of iambic pentameter. But instead she stumbles headlong into a sticky wicket of thesis-stealing academics, righteously vengeful students, and multiple corpses buried in the ivy.
As the bodies pile up, Victoria realizes that there’s a serial killer loose on the island—targeting tenured professors. She’ll need all her cunning and courage to subdue the rebellious undergrads, rescue their beleaguered plagiarizer, and unveil the murderer—before it’s too late.
