Malice Poetic / Murder on a Winter Afternoon

Melissa Craig gets a quick study in murder when she visits Uphanger, an innovative new school in picturesque Gloucestershire. Uphanger's tyrannical schoolmaster, Stewart Haughan, is less than popular with his long-suffering staff. But when he's murdered one morning on school grounds, his untimely demise sends the campus into an uproar. Haughan had been receiving anonymous verses in the mail--with mysterious messages that were anything but poetic. Now, Melissa must put on her own thinking cap to help police solve the case--and find a killer whose favorite course of study is Murder 101.

It's crime by the book for Melissa Craig. Plotting mystery novels has given this delightful, determinedly independent woman an encyclopedic knowledge of all the grisly ways to commit murder. And since art mirrors life, she has become a lady worldly wise to love, to hate, to passion ... but most of all, to whodunit!
