Riassunto: For Andy Carpenter, graduate school is stressful enough without adding romantic complications to the mix. First, Andy has to contend with the presence of Rob Hayward, newly enrolled in the history PhD program. He thought Rob was out of his life for good, but now he has to confront his unresolved feelings and not let his work suffer. When Andy discovers the body of fellow graduate student Charlie Harper in the university library, his ex, Rob, looks like the chief suspect in the murder. And just what was the relationship between Rob and Charlie? Andy and his best friend, Maggie McLendon, agree that Rob isn't a murderer, and they decide the best way to exonerate him is to figure out who really killed Charlie. Who else might have had a motive for murder? When a second murder occurs, Andy, Maggie, and Rob must work quickly to find the killer before Rob ends up charged with two murders he didn't commit...or even worse, dead!
L'autore: A seventh-generation Mississippian now transplanted to Texas, Dean James grew up with scads of cousins all over the place, none of whom has ever married one another as far as he knows. Sitting around on porches on hot summer days, listening to adults telling stories, he decided he wanted to tell stories, too. He wrote his first novel when he was twelve and has been making up stories ever since. No matter where those stories are set, something Southern creeps in, because he thinks that growing up Southern was like living in the middle of every one of Shakespeare's plays all at once. Comedy, drama, tragedy, farce--they're with you every day; all you have to do is choose. When he's not thinking up stories, Dean is the Manager of "Murder by the Book", Houston's nationally known mystery specialty bookstore. He is the co-author, with Jean Swanson, of By a Woman's Hand: A Guide to Mystery Fiction by Women (second edition, Berkley Prime Crime, 1996). The first edition of this popular reference book on contemporary women mystery writers was nominated by the "Mystery Writers of America" for the Edgar Award for Best Critical-Biographical Work, and it won the Agatha and Macavity Awards for Best Non-Fiction. The second edition was nominated for both the Agatha and Anthony Awards.
