Dying for Power
by Judith Cutler

Sophie Rivers, a lecturer at a college of further education, is shaken when a spate of fires leads to the death of a young teacher.

For Sophie Rivers, tackling newly imposed profit margins and a disruptive Fundamentalist movement means that teaching comes low on the agenda. When a young teacher dies, victim of a series of arson attacks at William Murdock College of Further Education, another teacher is attacked, and a women’s safe hostel is razed to the ground, Sophie has more than school politics on her mind. Could these events be connected to the group of muggers she witnessed in action, or the fundamentalist students?

Meanwhile Sophie’s love life is no less complex as three men vie for her attention. But when the murderer targets Sophie, she’s on her own…


British detective writing is crammed with feisty young female sleuths. But in Cutler's Sophie Rivers we are undoubtedly dealing with the creme de la creme
