Murder at the University

John Paul Davis, a wealthy computer executive and alum of the University returns for the wedding of a favorite professor's daughter. At the wedding reception, he renews his friendship with a beautiful post-doc, Rachel Howard, and an old enemy, Professor Dewit, who extends an insulting invitation for dinner at his home the next evening. Rachel confides in John Paul about some missing lab notes.

John Paul pumps aristocratic Chloe Manning, the owner of a bed & breakfast where he is staying, about Dewit and wife, Marie. Davis hears Marie had a lover, a young midwestern boy. Inadvertently, Davis finds evidence that Chloe Manning was a member of La Fleur Noir, a secret French group of which Davis was once a member.
