Jake Fuchs. Death of a Prof: The Nursery School Murders II (2001) 247 pp. [tpo]
Publisher’s description: “Maren Matthews, nursery school teacher and wife of an eccentric Edith Wharton scholar, finds the body of a prestigious English professor hacked to death on her kitchen floor. Hyenas and other wild beasts; neurotic, demanding nursery school parents; bogus cures for impotence; and the values and quirky goings on of a Berkeley culture both academic and affluent—all swirl together into a gently satirical, murderous stew.”
Setting: Berkeley
