Synopsis: This riveting debut novel probes murder, pretension, and conspiracy in the halls of Harvard Universitys famed graduate program.
When the dean of the department summons him to a hastily called and unscheduled meeting, young assistant professor Wim Vermeer fears that his career has come to an abrupt end. But instead of terminating his contract, the dean hands him a sensitive assignment. The previous night, Eric McInnes, the second son of a fantastically wealthy family, drowned. While the death appears to be an accident, his family has some questions about the safety and lack of supervision on campus--and so do the police. The dean asks Vermeer to assist the family and work closely with the police, keeping a close eye on the schools interests all the while. But it isnt long before Vermeer realizes hes been set up as the fall guy for a very nasty coverup. Not only does the university want a heinous financial scheme hidden, but theres a faculty member whos been keeping some career-ending secrets as well. Embroiled in the middle of conspiracy and deception, Vermeer turns to Boston PD Captain Barbara Brouillard for help, and together the pair must discover a way to find the truth about McInnes death--without destroying Vermeers career.
