Thirty-year-old Nikki Chase, the only Black professor in Harvard's economics department, has gone from racing along the fast track to tenure to dangling on the precipice of termination. The problem is her penchant for amateur sleuthing.

During the past few months, she has helped solve two murders: one involving a colleague at Harvard; the other, the wife of a Yale professor. That why heading to Princeton for the weekend to attend an academic conference seems like the perfect opportunity to redeem herself in the eyes of her department head.

While there, she's looking forward to seeing her brother Eric, a graduate student, and attending a gala party to honor Earl Stokes, head of Princeton's department of African American studies. Unfortunately, wherever Nikki goes, dead bodies seem to turn up.

So begins "Orange Crushed" (Pocket paperback, $14), the third installment in Pamela Thomas-Graham's Ivy League Mystery series. When Stokes turns up dead, Nikki can't help but try to find out why.
