Associate dean of the medical school, Linda Almquist, is trying to make her way in a man's world and when she starts asking questions about the assistant's death--and her research findings--she becomes a target herself.
I was really looking forward to this book because I enjoyed the author's protagonist in her first book, Sara Almquist. But Sara's sister, Linda, takes the lead in this book and, unlike Sara, Linda isn't the go-getter type. The detectives in the story had more interesting roles than the main character did. I looked forward to Sara's cameo appearances, but they were few and far between.
Linda must steer the investigation through the maze of faculty members jealous of her: They call her a “Deanlet.” Will the Dean soon replace Linda with one of her critics?
J. L. Greger has created a page-turner of a novel with well-formed characters in a believable setting. You’ll find the Medical School faculty to be the group you might encounter in any office, anyplace, and especially on a college campus. To an old professor such as I, the infighting and power games struck a familiar chord. Fortunately, I never had to deal with a murder in my Department.
