"A good whodunnit with the promise of a strong series to come." (Houston Chronicle) Former CFO Rosemary Stubbs arrives at Sanderson College fresh from divinity school, still devastated by her husband's tragic death. 
She hopes to find solace and a new vocation as the college chaplain.
But instead, she finds herself caught in the midst of campus intrigue and embezzlement.
When the college treasurer is found dead in the campus swimming pool, the mounting tension highlights hidden conflicts and allegiances.
It will take all of Rosemary's wits to add up the clues before the murderer gets her number.
In Overnight Float, Rosemary Stubbs makes her debut as an uncommon sleuth with much character and intellect.

  •     Collaborative effort by two Higher Education professionals, the Australian born Ker Conway, one time President of Smith College and Topham Kennan, the former Head of Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. Both certainly know their college based ins- and outs, but one wonders what their real aim was in writing a mundane mystery when both were noted professional academics - is it not a rather unusual departure for each? What were they trying to prove?The plot also proved a bit too thin and the heroine, Rosemary Stubbs, as a character is rather insipid. She's dubbed as an academic 'sleuth' - a term that's a bit old hat, what girls? Rosemary's quest to become ordained (or whatever it was she was doing as a academic back at her old Alma mater) was, I'm afraid, hardly compelling - I can't confirm it because I gave my copy away to a friend who found it equally uninteresting, nevertheless you couldn't find more banal subject matter when the general crux of the story is religion related.Where did the pseudonym Clare Munnings come from ? Why not Conway Kennan or Kennan Conway, girls? Did they argue over top billing?Overall a rather uninteresting and muddied effort, enough that I didn't even want to finish it although I'd ordered it at expense all the way from the USA.The title could be considered a mistake as it really tends to blow the plot a bit if you know what the term really means. On the cover it suggests this is the start of a series but I see no evidence of any follow-ups. Perhaps the authors thought it was for the best..... Berengaria, London
