his is a standalone book from Val McDermid, set around events in an Oxford College - in the past, and the present.  Fascinating book.

From the Blurb:

When Charlie Flint is sent a mysterious package of press cuttings about a brutal murder, it instantly grabs her attention.  The murder occurred in the grounds of her old Oxford college - a groom battered to death just hours after his wedding.  As his bride and wedding guests sipped champagne, his alleged killers were slipping his bloodstained body into the river.

Opening Lines:

Under normal circumstances, Charlie Flint would have consumed all the media coverage of the trial of Philip Carling's killers.

When Charlie Flint is sent a mysterious package of press cuttings about a brutal murder, it instantly grabs her attention.  The murder occurred in the grounds of her old Oxford college - a groom battered to death just hours after his wedding.  As his bride and wedding guests sipped champagne, his alleged killers were slipping his bloodstained body into the river.

Charlie doesn't know who sent the package, or why, but she can't get the crime out of her head.  And with her professional life as a clinical psychiatrist in tatters, she has plenty of time on her hands to investigate.
