Death in a Tenured Position (Kate Fansler Novels)

Death in a Tenured Position (Kate Fansler Novels) - Amanda Cross Set in late 70's, very early 80's this is more an atmospheric mystery than a whodunnit mystery. Kate Fansler comes to the rescue of the first tenured English Literature woman professor at Havard when she finds herself involve in a scandal. Was she set up? Professor Mandelbaum can't really defend herself after she is found dead in the men's bathroom. Who did it? And why? is less interesting than the politics and shenanigans behind the scenes at a prestigious university once the private playing ground of men only. Light on the mystery, heavy on the social criticisms, Death in a Tenured Position has aged well. Kate's niece carries the rebellion flag of the family really well.
