“Sounds like Wonder Boys times Patricia Highsmith. Yes please!”—Crime Reads

He manages to brilliantly weaponize college, students, teachers, tenure–and even the writing of novels. Smart, audacious and completely original.”—Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of The First to Lie

“A smart, highly entertaining mystery with red-herrings galore and such perfect dialogue, you’ll feel like a fly on the wall…the story will keep you guessing until the very end. Not to be missed!” — Hannah Mary McKinnon, internationally bestselling author of Never Coming Home
