In sum: an accomplished first novel, too often bogged down by the author's eagerness to educate, but with many fresh touches and near-poetic images. Lovers of the English traditional will look forward to Fiske's next outing. Down-to-earth Inspector Bunce of the local force is saddled with ""assistance"" from Scotland Yard's snobbish, effete, incompetent Inspector Pcoklington.

Fiske's deep affection for Cambridge, its colleges and its customs are apparent in Academic Murder. Although having spent only a year's residence at Darwin, a graduate college, Fiske clearly absorbed the beauty and peculiar behavior of this uniquely beautiful mediaevel town. Graduates and visitors of Cambridge will find entertainment and fond memories between Academic Murder's covers. Although the pace is slow and the ending predictable, each chapter brings a glimpse into the Cantabrigian lifestyle.
This book does well in one category: mystery. Though it seems as though the author was at times trying to show that she knows a lot of big words the plot, which speeds up after the 4th chapter, will make you ponder who the murderer is 24/7. The truly unique span of characters make this book really something new. And the conclusion you will most likely never see coming.

The book has only 2 flaws: 1 a couple chapters had some very meaningless information and, 2, the end chapters had some references to things that the book didn't seem in the category for.

All in all though this is a decent book that will fill your life until the last page has been read.
Dorsey Fiske writes as if she wishes she were Dorothy Sayers. Since I wish a lot of people were Dorothy Sayers :-), this is fine with me. Her prose has many interesting turns of phrase and is refreshing to read. The pace is stately -- it doesn't drag, but it doesn't keep you up all night, either. Most of the violence is off-stage, and the first murder victim and the murderer are both people that one wouldn't mind seeing the end of. In short, it's a classic cozy. If classic cozies appeal to you, then this should be a great read for you. If you like your mysteries tough and sharp-edged, then look elsewhere.
