The author of The Blood Lance and The Painted Messiah demonstrates his versatility with this dark, stylish noir thriller set on and around a Midwestern university campus

 

I turned thirty-seven that summer, older than Dante when he toured Hell, but only by a couple of years. Life couldn't be better for David Albo, an associate professor of English at a small midwestern university. He lives in an idyllic, out-of-town, plantation-style mansion with a beautiful and intelligent wife and an adoring teenage stepdaughter. As he returns to the university after a long and relaxing sabbatical, there is a full professorship in the offing—and, what's more, he has managed to stay off the booze for two whole years. But, once term begins, things deteriorate rapidly. The damning evidence that he has sexually harassed his students is just the beginning as Dave finds himself sucked into a vortex of conspiracy, betrayal, jealousy, and murder. Unless he can discover quickly who is out to destroy him, all that he is and loves is about to be stripped away.

About the Author:

Craig Smith is a former professor at the University of North Colorado. He is the author of The Blood Lance, The Painted Messiah, and The Whisper of Leaves, winner of ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year award.

From Booklist:

It wouldn’t be entirely accurate to say that David Albo, an associate professor at a small university, was looking forward to coming back to work after a sabbatical. But the promise of a full professorship has him thinking positively. That changes quickly, however, after he meets and takes an immediate dislike to a charismatic student. Soon David finds his life under attack. Two female students file sexual harassment charges against him, he is suspended, his wife kicks him out, and one of the students disappears, putting David under suspicion for murder. With David as the narrator, we see events through his eyes, and we know only what he tells us. And here’s the thing: David can be, when the situation calls for it (or just for fun), quite the accomplished liar. Even as we empathize with David and hope he can extricate himself from this situation, we recognize that he is not an entirely reliable narrator, and we can’t help wondering if we really know the truth. A fine novel, suspenseful and impossible to stop reading. --David Pitt
