In 1969, Jane Britton, an ambitious graduate student at Harvard, was found bludgeoned to death in her apartment.

A whisper network kept Jane’s story alive: a rumour of an affair with a professor that ended in tragedy when Britton threatened to expose him. Forty years later, when curious undergrad Becky Cooper first heard the story, she felt compelled to find out more. We Keep the Dead Close is an account of her complex and fascinating investigation spanning a decade.
