Reviews

Harvard professor Henry Spearman--an ingenious amateur sleuth who uses economics to size up every situation--is sent by an American entrepreneur to Cambridge, England. Spearman's mission is to scout out for purchase the most famous house in economic science: Balliol Croft, the former dwelling place of Professor Alfred Marshall, John Maynard Keynes's teacher and the font of modern economic theory. A near miss for the American entrepreneur and the shocking and bizarre murder of Nigel Hart, the master of Bishop's College, soon make it clear that the whole affair is risky business. When a second corpse turns up, Spearman is jolted into realizing that his own life is in peril as he finds himself face to face with the most diabolical killer in his experience.

Marshall Jevons is the pen name of Kenneth G. Elzinga, the Robert C. Taylor Professor of Economics at the University of Virginia, and William Breit of Trinity University (1933-2011). Together they wrote two other Henry Spearman mystery novels under the Jevons pseudonym: The Fatal Equilibrium (Ballantine) and Murder at the Margin (Princeton). Elzinga, as Marshall Jevons, most recently wrote The Mystery of the Invisible Hand (Princeton).

Review:

"Readers will find themselves effortlessly picking up the economic principles strewn about by the authors as clues.... The corpse, when it appears, is a show stopper."--Deborah Stead, The New York Times Book Review

"This lively, carefully crafted mystery surely offers the greatest good to the greatest number of readers."--Publishers Weekly

Endorsement:

"A Deadly Indifference maintains the high standard authors William Breit and Kenneth G. Elzinga established in their two earlier Henry Spearman mysteries.... This short book will make a great gift."--John J. Siegfried, Journal of Economic Education
