The Cambridge Murders - Adam Broome

“ he’s tight” The two undergraduates had been up to London without the formality of getting “exeats” from their tutor. They were returning to their rooms in Silver Street by way of Trumpington Street and in passing down Brookside kept as far as possible in the shade of the tree opposite the Leys School, so as the more easily to avoid the possible attention of the proctors on their final rounds of the town. “Tight or not, we can’t leave him there to drown” ’
The Oxford Murders - Adam Broome

Along the street from the Station the shops were closed and shuttered, although here and there someone peeked furtively from behind a curtain. The streets themselves were deserted, and pieces of litter were strewn everywhere. There were shouts and trampling noises in the distance, in the direction of the colleges. “What can it mean, Holmes?” I exclaimed. “Has the town been invaded by some wild beast?”
