Synopsis

Official verdict: Suicide.
But why would that vigorous department chairman kill himself? To avoid disgrace? Those rumored ventures on the dark side? Some other secret life? Visiting professor Preston Barclay wonders. But his questions bring no answers, only anonymous threats. He has enough problems already, proving himself on a strange campus while radical faculty do all they can to undermine him. Worse yet, that sexy siren assigned as his assistant complicates his courtship of the beautiful Mara Thorn.
While Press keeps asking questions, Mara’s research reveals a cancer of criminal activity that permeates the community and even the campus itself. The more Press questions, the more dangerous the threats against him become, and the more determined he grows to clear his friend’s name.
But can Press and Mara’s stumbling efforts prevail against the entrenched forces of the police, the campus radicals, and an unseen but powerful criminal organization that increasingly puts their lives in danger…?

My Thoughts!

This was my first read by Donn Taylor, but it left me wondering what I’ve been missing out on all these years. His writing style is absolutely amazing! He has such a talent and draws readers to the edge of their seats. Unexpected twists and turns, well developed characters, and a storyline to kill makes this book no less than amazing! I love that the characters are well developed and relatable. While this is book 3 in the A Preston Barclay Mystery series, it stood well on its own and was easy to follow. I highly recommend this book.
