Academic Body Download ç 109 A retired theatrical director struggles with a new career as drama professor at a small Maine c. This book has many elements that I simply love a stage director who solves a mystery by blocking the crime out like a play his delightful diva of a wife who is forced to give up her acting career for him a small campus rife with academic and other sorts of scandal and a cast of suspects with so many secrets that you will be kept guessing right up until the very end The tone of the book is definitely that of a cozy mystery There is virtually no bloodshed little violence nor graphic sex but lots of enchanting innuendo between the professor and his wife What there is is a fascinating puzzle that the reader unravels along with the amateur sleuthscholarly stage director Paul Godwin The motives alibis and character connections are so wonderfully convoluted and intertwined that readers just like Paul may want to diagram the murder on scratch paper as they go along The book is easy to read and just the right length The author knows her literary history too with examples from ancient Greek drama to Shakespeare to L Frank Baum provided to enrich the prose I loved it

I hemmed and hawed between giving this one or two stars I liked the protagonist well enough but I didn t really get into the story It seemed weirdly disjointed to me The reason for the murder to me was rather flimsy I never really got a sense of the characters including the protagonist who is a former Broadway director who now because of health reasons works as a professor at a small town college His wife is was a famous stage actress The book is set in the 196263 school year It was winter but I don t recall if it was before or after the new year I found parts of it confusing and found myself looking back a few pages to verify information I don t know if that was because I just couldn t get into the book or because the writing was not clearor memorable The author passed away so there are no other books of hers to compare
