About this title

Synopsis:

He'd been warned to avoid trouble: Nick Hoffman's outspoken attitude and reputation for being in the wrong place at the wrong time had placed his career in jeopardy. But what trouble could be caused by eating lunch?
It was his partner Stefan's idea that Nick eat near the campus bridge over the Michigan River once in a while, something to help him get over the nightmares of the murder two years earlier. Nick's involvement had brought publicity, bad publicity, to EAR (the Department of English, American Studies, and Rhetoric), as well as to the State University of Michigan, and not done very much for his staying on a tenure track. With his review coming up soon, Nick didn't need any distractions...and he certainly didn't need to see the person lying dead on the bridge.
Forced to wade ever deeper into the events set in motion by another death on campus, inexorably drawn into another risky investigation in the surprisingly cutthroat world of academia - where murder and faculty meetings are often difficult to tell apart - Nick's job isn't the only thing that may be on the line.

Review:

Studying at the (fictional) State University of Michigan can be murder--at least in Lev Raphael's brittle, bright, and brash books about Nick Hoffman.

Hoffman teaches in the university's EAR (English, American Studies, Rhetoric) department and is very popular with his students. However, he has just turned 40 and is seriously worried about getting tenure. Also, his supervisors tend to view him as an under-published scholar, and, with some justification, a walking crime zone. The truth is that Nick attracts murder like a magnet. This time out, a student named Jesse Benevento--son of a history professor--is stabbed to death before Nick's very eyes during a campus riot. Nick and his novelist lover, Stefan Borowski, are sucked into a case that turns even uglier when a second murder occurs. As Nick struggles to solve the murders, his colleagues whine and bicker, a graduate student stalks him, and more violence erupts on campus.

If you like the way Raphael puts the camp into campus, his two previous titles, The Edith Wharton Murders and Let's Get Criminal, are both available in paperback. --Dick Adler
