Book II of Dalziel and Pascoe. Lecturers having it away with students, midnight romps among the sand dunes…this all fits in with Superintendent Andy Dalziel’s views of the benefit of Higher Education. But the discovery of a body buried beneath a statue in the grounds of Holm Coultram College surprises even his cycnical mind. Fortunately, he has an expert to hand, that prize product of H.E., Sergeant¬† Peter Pascoe. Together they settle in on campus and the learning begins. The only trouble is that just as they think they have solved one problem, a second body turns up…and another…Pascoe is both helped and hindered by finding an old flame on the staff, while the students class Dalziel as a fascist pig and thick with it…which is a very serious mistake.
