Lia Matera

Where Lawyers Fear to Tread

A San Francisco student’s about to discover law school can be murderous in this comic mystery series opener.
Willa Jansson picked the wrong time to quit smoking. Exams are four weeks away. And if she’s not sitting in class, studying, or sipping innumerable cups of coffee, then she’s toiling away as the senior articles editor at the Malhousie Law Review. This job, and being
in the top 10 percent of her class, means she’ll be able to land her dream job when she graduates. But at the moment, she has an even bigger problem to deal with . . .
After Malhousie’s editor in chief, super-student Susan Green, is found bludgeoned to death, strangers—curious reporters, angry professors, and high-profile lawyers—keep snooping around the office. Then another editor fights to take Susan’s position, only to meet the same grisly end. Willa knows she must find out quickly who’s killing her fellow students and why—because, as the new editor in chief, she could be next . . . 
Praise for the Willa Jansson Mysteries 
“Willa Jansson is one of the most articulate and surely the wittiest of women sleuths at large in the genre.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Readers will be shaken by Matera’s rapier-sharp dissection of personal relationships and radical ideologies. Matera again demonstrates that she is one of today’s best mystery writers.” —Publishers Weekly
