Imogen Quy, college nurse at St. Agathas College, Cambridge University is inquisitive by nature. So her interest is piqued when a research fellow plummets to his death from a beautiful old tower in mysterious circumstances, especially when an undergraduate takes it upon himself to confront the suspected murderer through an unorthodox production of the bad quarto - a shortened, pirated script of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Leave it to Imogen, an exemplary amateur sleuth, to find out what really happened, in the most literate and compelling academic mystery since Dorothy L. Sayers Gaudy Night.
