What is the Summerfield secret?

Biography is usually a safe profession. But more than one biographer has found that writing about the late mathematician Gideon Summerfield has nasty consequences. Consequences that can sometimes be deadly.

Imogen Quy, the coolly competent nurse at St. Agatha’s College, Cambridge, first notices the pattern when her enthusiastic lodger Fran becomes the latest Summerfield biographer. Before she realises how deadly the Summerfield secret is, Fran’s life is in danger. And Imogen may be next . . .
