BOOK 1: Murder in Disguise
Official verdict: Suicide. But why would that vigorous department chairman kill himself? To avoid disgrace? Those rumored ventures on the dark side? Some other secret life? Visiting professor Preston Barclay wonders. But his questions bring no answers, only anonymous threats. He has enough problems already, proving himself on a strange campus while radical faculty do all they can to undermine him. Worse yet, that sexy siren assigned as his assistant complicates his courtship of the beautiful Mara Thorn.
While Press keeps asking questions, Mara’s research reveals a cancer of criminal activity that permeates the community and even the campus itself. The more Press questions, the more dangerous the threats against him become, and the more determined he grows to clear his friend’s name.
But can Press and Mara’s stumbling efforts prevail against the entrenched forces of the police, the campus radicals, and an unseen but powerful criminal organization that increasingly puts their lives in danger…?

He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations, she a headstrong professor of religion. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and … are probably guilty of her murder.

Now their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder, plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees, putting their lives in danger.
Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched efforts of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and the powerful but unseen forces of a criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse . . .
