Come ogni mattina Elena Weaver, giovane e bella studentessa del St. Stephen's College di Cambridge, esce all'alba per andare ad allenarsi. E, come ogni mattina, la sua dovrebbe essere una corsa tra i parchi della cittadella universitaria. Qualcuno, però, la sta aspettando... Un delitto assurdo, perpetrato con spietata ferocia. Il college chiama in causa New Scotland Yard, e tornano in scena l'ispettore Thomas Lynley e il sergente Barbara Havers, pronti a rovistare negli armadi più oscuri dell'esclusivo ambiente di Cambridge. Gli ostacoli saranno molti, molte le domande, e prima fra tutte: chi era realmente Elena Weaver?
