About the Book
Official verdict: Suicide.
But why would that vigorous department chairman commit suicide? To avoid disgrace? Those rumored activities on the dark side? Some other secret life? Visiting professor Preston Barclay wonders. But his questions bring no answers, only threats. Press 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 student 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 . . . ?
