Harvard professor Wilson Chaney’s position in life is hanging by a thread; his marriage, his reputation, not to mention his tenure at Harvard are in the hands of a blackmailer, someone threatening to sell Chaney’s secrets at very high prices. His enviable life could disappear into thin air should the blackmailer’s evidence—proof of his affair with a young student—become public knowledge.

So he hires Boston private investigator Carlotta Carlyle to track down the blackmailer and put a stop to the scheme. Can she do it? Of course, but should she? The professor doesn’t inspire much loyalty-after all, he did commit adultery with one of his own students—but Carlotta agrees. Digging into the case, nosing around Harvard and the possible suspects from the rest of Dr. Chaney’s life, she uncovers a suspicious death as part of the backstory to Dr. Chaney’s situation. Suddenly Carlotta’s sixth sense is telling her the case might be more complicated—and more dangerous—than it first seemed.
