More About the Author

Margot Kinberg is a mystery author and Associate Professor. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Kinberg graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, then moved to Philadelphia, which Kinberg still considers home.

Kinberg had always been fascinated by crime fiction and mystery novels. In fact, she became an "addict" while still in her teens. So in 2007, she began her fiction writing career with her debut novel, Publish or Perish. In that novel, Kinberg put her experience in the world of higher education to use in creating a murder mystery that takes place at fictional Tilton University. This story introduces Joel Williams, a former police detective-turned-professor, who teaches in Tilton University's Department of Criminal Justice. In this first outing, Williams helps solve the murder of a graduate student. The second in Kinberg's Joel Williams series is B-Very Flat, in which Williams helps to solve the murder of a young violin virtuosa who dies suddenly on the night of an important musical competition

Kinberg, who now lives with her family in Southern California, is currently at work on her third Joel Williams novel.

Format: Paperback
This American crime novel is the second in the series about Joel Williams, the academic detective.

Serena Brinkman is a sophomore student at Tilton University. She is busy following her courses, she has to practice several hours every day for an important violin contest, and just like any other student she tries to squeeze in time with her friends and Patricia Stanley, her lover.

Though Serena is a pretty and considerate young girl, she is not without enemies or rivals. The young photographer Tony Ferguson from the Tilton yearbook falls in love with Serena when he interviews her for the yearbook, and he is not happy when he realizes he has been slighted for a girl. Troy Brinkman is Serena's cousin and good friend, but how far will he go to get rid of his gambling debts? The violinist Michelle Park likes Serena, but winning the competition is decisive for her with her humble background, and another fellow student, Marcie Bratton, struggles hard to keep a secret which might destroy her future career.

And how many of them know that Serena is allergic to peanuts?

When things go horribly wrong, Patricia appeals to Dr Joel Williams, her advisor, for help to solve the case, as she is certain Serena would never eat anything that wasn't safe for her.
