    One thought on “Murder in the Philosophy Department”

    1. When the new head of the philosophy department of a third rate college is murdered and Professor Liza Ryder looks closely at her colleagues, she realizes that all have skeletons in their closets Otherwise, why would they have stooped so low as to teach at such a dump What would they do if someone was threatening their precarious hold on the academic life The setting is what separates this book from most murder mysteries In case you didn t know, academics aren t like you or I March gets plenty of [...]

    2. Witty, dry academia humor permeates this cozy mystery in which the newly hired chairman of the Philosophy Department at a lackluster private college in a small town somewhere equally nondescript is murdered presumably by a member of the faculty or staff as no students had access to the Department Offices at the time of the crime.Liza Ryder, one of the three women in the department, falls into the role of sleuth and uncovers dirt on various other members of the faculty but no clues per se to the [...]

    3. Julia March s tale of murder in the philosophy department is both suspensful and good, old fashioned mystery The story begins on the campus of Beaufort College, a third rate school where students and professors alike end up after something in life has gone wrong The main character and narrator, Philosophy professor Liza, is the force that keeps the tale moving forward, always curious and up for investigating, much like the reader I enjoyed the witty voice of the narrator although I found her sno [...]

    4. This novel has all of the perfect qualities a mystery requires to truly entrance and surprise the reader The setting is perfect for the crime, the main character is determined and headstrong, and the plot is intricate enough to keep the reader guessing The secondary characters add to the mystery and give the book depth The reader will enjoy getting to know each suspect very well their eccentricities, persona, appearance, and motive The main character acts like a guide for the reader through the [...]

    5. This is a very entertaining murder mystery that is set in, as the title suggests, a philosophy department When the head of department is found dead, his colleagues fall under suspicion Laura Ryder, a professor with a strong alibi, begins to investigate her co workers out of exasperation at the disruption than anything else Laura is very smart, prefers her dogs to anyone that she works with and writes novels the subject matter is a guarded secret from her colleagues under a pen name.The story is [...]

    7. A fun and entertaining read set in the Philosophy department of a less than stellar undergraduate college What could be entertaining for those of us with careers in academiaa new department head murdered at the semester s beginning, the behind the scenes peek into admin faculty, and staff, and a tenacious am I the only sane one here female professor protagonist who sets out to solve the case so everything can get back to normal A fun romp and well worth cozying up with on a chilly, rainy day.

    8. This book was well written I learned a lot of new words and highly entertaining, particularly if you have spent time in a college setting The characters are quite colorful, and there are a few tributes to Agatha Christie The only reason I don t give it 5 stars is because the ending, while exciting, seemed quite rushed It seems possible March was on a deadline and needed to wrap things up quickly, which is so disappointing because the characters were so much fun to spend time with

    9. Jolly good fun I quite liked the conceit of having a one time philosophy teacher writing a book in which a philosophy teacher writes a book The mystery is well plotted even if some characters are a little unbelievable.

    10. Entertaining whodunnit in the classic mould, set in a less than prestigious American college Great characters.
