Author Name: 

This 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.
