Anna Taylor is found with her throat cut at a high-stakes research laboratory where results are driven by ambition and greed. Adam Gabriel, an Oxford pathology professor, uses his diagnostic and forensic skills to determine how the murder was committed and at the same time reveals the none too virtuous world of modern Oxford “town and gown” where murder is not just possible but almost inevitable.
