Wendy Fowler was a top-notch research chemist, and the only woman in the Chemistry department at her Cambridge University. Her dedication to her work resulted in discoveries which would justify the funds which she received from her research fellowship. Her only interest, aside from her research, was her volunteer participation in the Pregnancy Information Service, a counseling service for unwed mothers. Then Wendy was found murdered in the Chemistry building.
Professor Gillian Adams, head of the History department at a Canadian university, is visiting Cambridge with her lover, Detective Chief Inspector Edward Gisborne. Gillian and Edward are friends of members of the Pregnancy Information Service, and are drawn into the hunt for Wendy's murderer. They must find out if Wendy lost her life because of professional jealousy, university politics, or some less obvious motive.
