 About the Book 

From the back of the book: John Jacob Astor College is just another liberal arts school nurturing the sons and daughters of Oregons elite. It has its ivy-covered walls, its pep rallies, its sororities, and now...it has a murder.Meet Professor Henry Bishop, plain old Harry to his friends. Hes the graying black sheep of the poli/sci department, with a decided taste for early morning scotch and afternoon naps in his office. But when the editor of the high school paper is found bludgeoned to death, with a baffling link to a coeds disappearance fifteen years earlier, Harry cant resist a little snoopy sleuthing. With an ambitious and egotistical reporter as his unlikely and unpredictable ally, and a tough lady cop on his tail, Harry plunges into the hunt. But then his research makes him the killers next target, and Harry must race to unravel the mystery before he gets unraveled himself.I always love me a good academic mystery!
