Meet Elizabeth Elliot, a Quaker whose quiet wisdomand determined will are her powerful tools of detection.

In the world of paleontology, the name of the game is research. Some would even kill for credentials. So it comes as no surprise-and as quiet satisfaction for many-when an eminent scientist is found murdered in his Harvard lab. The prime suspect is a beautiful graduate student, the Professor's only female advisee, who has just filed sexual harassment charges against him.

Harvard is determined to close the case and convict the student-when Elizabeth Elliot, lifelong Quaker and Clerk of the Meetinghouse in Cambridge, steps into the fray at the student's request. Elizabeth is convinced of her innocence. Her only hope to clear the young woman is to penetrate Harvard's sanctum sanctorum to find the devious killer-knowing full well that brilliant minds are often the most dangerous...
