A Vein of Deceit is the 15th Matthew Bartholomew mystery. The book is starts out with Michaelhouse, an educational institution in Cambridge, missing a large sum of money. An internal investigation shows that the college's accountant has misplaced a substantial amount of the college's resources. The leader of the college, Langelee, decides that the senior proctor Michael and the college doctor Bartholomew are to conduct an investigation in to the missing money.
From there a series of adventures take place and, in true Susanna Gregory fashion, as the adventure continues bodies begin to pile up.
In short, I liked this book. As Matthew Bartholomew mysteries go, this was one of the better ones. I am looking forward to what happens in the 16th book.
