Praise

Praise for The Finalists

“I raced through The Finalists, which is not only a first-rate thriller but an insightful commentary on the challenges facing higher education. The Finalists is proof positive that David Bell is one of the best thriller writers working today.”—Alma Katsu, author of Red Widow

“Expertly plotted…Bell pays homage to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, skillfully transitioning into the locked-room mystery while simultaneously giving the novel his own spin. The Finalists makes the grade with solid suspense.”—Shelf Awareness

“There are enough red herrings in The Finalists to satisfy any Agatha Christie fan.”—BookTrib

“David Bell’s The Finalists’ unique premise and engaging execution is sure to grip the reader from the first chapter.”—Deep South Magazine

The Finalists shows the cut-throat world of higher education in a microcosm. Issues such as racism, agism, sexism all roil among the six students, the administrator, and the founders. No one is truly innocent, even the victims. Bell manages to push it all—character motivations, social issues, and the lock-room mystery—to the bursting point.”—The Criminal Element
