But what Greene finds is going to be even harder for the school to bear.When the autopsy reveals the real ca [...]


    2. inkedbookdragonI am reviewing "Murder at the University" by Faith Martin. I received a free copy of it from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Any quotes that follow are from the text and not my own words.I love a great mystery. I always have enjoyed trying to figure out a book as I read it. This one was a good read but I found myself leaning towards the solution about middle of the way through. I was highly disappointed when I did not experience the "A-ha" moment that I long for when r [...]


    3. This is the second book in the DI Hillary Greene series, having not read the first book in the series I would personally say it can be read easily as a stand alone though I am intrigued with Hillary’s past to do with her husband especially.With is being set in Oxford I had visions of it being like the Inspector Morse crime series. Having only ever watched the series though and not read the books I couldn’t really compare the two but it certainly feels like we get to see a side of Oxford that [...]


    4. This is book 2 in the Hillary Greene series which is being republished by Joffe Books.The story begins with the death of a beautiful French student. DI Hillary Greene is given the lead on this case which becomes more complex as they delve deeper into the girl's history. It is a very intriguing story and the reader keeps turning the pages as we join Hillary and her team in their struggle to find the clues hidden among the false leads.We learn more about Hillary as life throws more and more bad ne [...]


    5. 4 and 1 / 2 starsThis book is a revised edition of the novel previously published as “On the Straight and Narrow.”DI Hillary Greene is having a particularly bad freezing Monday morning. When she arrives at the station DI Mel Mallow has a case for her. A student at St. Anselm, a college of Oxford University has been found dead. Her name was Eva Gerainte and she was nineteen years old and from France. Found with a new needle track in her arm, the police wonder if it was suicide or an accidenta [...]


    6. DI Hillary Greene is recovering from an investigation that landed her bent cop husband in jail and put a cloud on her career. If he was bad, perhaps it’s rubbed off on her – and where is all that ill-gotten money he amassed from the illegal importation of endangered animal parts anyway? She doesn’t know, she wishes she did, she could use the money, but no one in the Thames Valley Police Force really believes her. The only thing that saves her is, she’s a he’s a brilliant detective and [...]


    7. donnasbookblog.wordpress/I am absolutely loving this series!! I love a good crime thriller series and this is definitely one I'm going to be following!! The plot was great and the pace was good, it was a tad slower than some of the other books of this genre but that didn't put me off and it was in keeping with the first in the series and the writers style.  This book can easily be read as a stand alone but if you are going to read the series I would recommend reading Murder on the Oxford Canal [...]


    8. I would like to thank Netgalley and Joffe Books for an advance copy of Murder at the University, the second police procedural set in Oxford to feature DI Hillary Greene.Fresh from the internal investigation which cleared her of any collusion in her ex husband's illegal dealings Hillary is asked to look into a suspicious death at St Anselm's, a private college in Oxford where a young French student has been found dead in her bed from an apparent drugs overdose. Unhappy with the look of the scene [...]


    9. *Thanks to Jill Burkinshaw and the team at Joffe Books for the free copy in exchange for an honest review*At the beginning of the book, DI Hillary Greene and her team (DC Tommy Lynch, DS Janine Tyler and DS Ross) are sent to investigate the death of a pretty French student at Oxford University. Quickly deciding this death is no accident, Hillary and her team discover the student has an unusual lifestyle, and of course the University is desperate to keep it all hushed up. After several leads grow [...]


    10. 3.5* rounded down. Hillary investigates the death of Eva, a French student, and flirts with the idea of cashing in her dead husband's ill-gotten gains, currently lying in a Cayman Islands bank account.I found the confusion about St Anselm's (where Eva was studying) a terrible distraction for much of this book. For the record, despite the title, it is not part of the university. It is described as a sort of school with a principal and teachers and scholarship students. Eva is there for a year to [...]


    11. This is book two in the brilliant DI Hilary Green series and I was really looking forward to reading it after I read and reviewed book 1 (My blog post of which can be found here. Even thought this is the second book in the series it can easily be read on it’s own (although book 1 is brilliant so I would still suggest you read that one as well)Needless to say that this book did not disappoint me in any way as it was a brilliant read.The book starts off with a French Student being found dead in [...]


    12. This is the second book in the Detective Hilary Greene series and neatly follows on from the first, allowing readers to learn more about Hilary and her team both on a personal and professional level.In this book Hilary is given the lead in the investigation into the death of Eva Gerainte, a young french student at St. Anselm`s, one of the colleges of Oxford university.From the first look Hilary is not convinced this is straightforward suicide. She is proved right when the results of the postmort [...]


    13. Thank you Netgalley and Joffe Books for the eARC. This book is now titled MURDER AT THE UNIVERSITY and the 2nd in the D.I. Hillary Greene series.Hillary is not having a good start of her day. She has just received a letter in the mail informing her she's being sued by an animal rights group. Even in death her late (police) husband's dirty deeds are haunting her. Then she slips and falls on the icy path outside her narrow boat. At work she's immediately sent out to body of a young pretty French s [...]


    14. A girl is found dead in her University lodgings. This is Oxford and she is a scholar- which means she has a scholarship so why does she have the trappings of a different life? DI Hillary Greene is still being plagued by the past of her now dead-almost-ex- husband and would love to start afresh. She loves her work and might just risk his pension being taken off her in order to keep her hands where she likes them- in the thick of things rather than pen pushing up the ranks. This is the second DI G [...]


    15. This book was originally written under the title 'On the Straight and Narrow' in 2004. It is the second book in the DI Hillary Greene seriesHaving recently read two of the more recent DI Hillary Greene series, I was keen to catch up on some of the earlier books. I soon found that I liked the writing style and the characters in this novel. The descriptions of the people and locations help to add a sense of reality. The story develops at a fast pace and has some clever twists. Once again the Oxfor [...]


    16. I would have rated this higher, except I kept feeling like I'd missed something somewhere. It seemed to me that they just jumped to conclusions and made assumptions and then acted on those, without any facts to back them up. 'Here's a dead girl with an injection site on her arm. Drugs. Of course it's drugs' No reason other than an injection site to assume that. Nothing else about her suggested drug use. 'She wouldn't take on someone like that'. Based on what? How do you know? You know so very li [...]


    17. DI Hillary Green has been called to one of the universities in Oxford - the body of a young French student has been found in her room and it looks like a drugs overdose. Hillary doesn't think it was accidental. Further investigations lead them to discover that the student had a secret life and the drug she was injected with was very experimental. While investigating the case Hillary is also dealing with the threat of losing the home she shared with her late husband - she's being sued by an anima [...]


    18. Great readDear Faith I am sorry to moan but your books need to be less readableI am getting into trouble reading late at night when needing to go to sleep. Nearly missing bus stops because reading, pushing lunch breaks to the last minute. Worse if all forgetting to converse with my wife as I am into reading the next paragraph. Most books come to a natural break at chapters, but no not you there is always a carrot to make you read the next chapter. Seriously thanks for your books very enjoyable a [...]


    19. This is the third DI Hillary Greene book I have read (I got the order wrong!) and so far it is my favourite of the three. It is a fascinating read and it was good to be kept guessing about the culprint right the way through the story (though I did guess some details of the plot en route - should have been a detective!). Despite the over-arching storylines, I had no problem reading the books in the wrong order as one was not entirely reliant upon the previous ones and the spoilers were very minor [...]


    20. When DI Hillary Greene gets the call of a possible suicide at Oxford College, she isn't believing it. Then it turns into a high profile murder investigation, and low and behold Greene's nemesis is brought in to "help with the investigation". Like Greene and her group can't figure things out on their own? Please! The book is a crime thriller, and this one is very well written and the story line flows nicely. The characters interactions are worth the price of admission. I enjoyed this book very mu [...]


    21. Enjoyable British police proceduralI enjoyed this mystery although I am not entirely sure it follows all the rules of giving all the clues to the readers, or maybe I was a bit slow on the uptake with this one. The main character is interesting and street smart, a woman in a man's world, and doing a damn good job of it. The story is engaging and does make you want to go on to the next book in the series.


    22. Great read. Bet you can't figure out" Who done it."Second I read in series. Great read. Hillary, feels things are going against her. From being useful still living on her Uncles boat, she needs this case to help her cope with life. Great reveal into the life of academia and prostitution, the case is going no where and then the pieces begin to fall in place. At the same time a possible love interest or maybe two show up.


    23. This is the second in the re-issue of this series of DI Hillary Greene. A student, Eva Gerainte of St. Anselm's college, has been found dead under suspicious circumstances So Greene leads her team in the investigation of leading to some surprising finds in the life of Eva, but did any of these lead to her death.An enjoyable easy to read, well-written mystery. I am getting to like the mix of the charactersI hope to read the next in the seriesReceived an Advanced Reader Copy


    24. An engrossing readThis is the second in the series and follows on nicely from the first, but can be read alone.The main character Helen is intelligent and very good at her job: good old fashioned crime solving.She is living alone but has several male admirers - some single, others not.The beauty of the book is the way crimes are solved with intuition and intelligence.Hillary is my new hero!


    25. I loved this book as much as the first in the series. The author is great at creating depth to her characters, by not giving away "whodunit"; there's wonderful interaction between the characters in the novel, you find yourself immersed in the storyline. I enjoyed that the female characters are strong, smart, free thinking women.I've already downloaded book 3. I totally recommend the series and the author.


    26. Good whodunnitI liked this story. It's my first foray into this author's work and it won't be my last. Obviously the Oxford connection reminds you of Morse and Lewis but with a female lead - and perhaps not quite as complicated. DI Hillary Greene is given the case of a young French students murder to investigate with her team. She gets deep into Eva's surprising life. I really enjoyed it.


    27. Great seriesThis is the second book in a police procedural series with Hillary Greene as protagonist. It is full of interesting characters and I especially like D I Greene. Her life on a houseboat in this novel set in winter is fun and funny and the case she is pursuing is fully engaging. I'm waiting for the next book in the series.


    28. Really excellent seriesI truly enjoyed this book. I plan on reading the rest of the series. This can be read as a stand-alone, I'm starting from this point.The characters are well written, three dimensional & none of it's predictable!I'm thrilled to have found a new series to keep me company this winter!


    29. In my humble opinion this book is better than the first one which takes some beating.I simply love the characters, the style of writing and the fascinating plot of the storyline. I cannot wait for the next installment, hope we are not kept waiting too long!!! Grateful thanks to Joffe Books for allowing me to read this book, another winner to be sure.


    30. Death by PoisonFemale student in one of Oxford universities is found dead. Detective Greene discovers people she is speaking to are lying about their relationship to the student. But is any of the information gathering relevant to the murder? I really enjoy these characters with their flaws and all. On to book 3.
