Murder in Disguise by Donn Taylor Book Review


Murder in Disguise (Lamplighter Mysteries, October 2017)

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…?

My Review:
"Murder in Disguise" is a new addition to the series by Donn Taylor called  " A Preston Barclay Mystery" series. Preston Barclay is just visiting when a department chairman is dead. It is thought by some to be a suicide. Preston doesn't think that this is right so he starts to ask questions and the more he asks the more trouble he finds himself in. The campus is full of suspects and a lot of illegal activities. The suspects are not going to let him get any information and they start to try to stop him by scaring him with threats. This makes him want to solve this crime even more. Will he be able to prove that this was not a suicide but a murder before he is the next in line to get hurt? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group . These are my opinions.
