Failure Is Fatal

(2016)
(The second book in the Laura Murphy Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Someone at Professor Laura Murphy's college appears to be playing a joke on her by planting sexually explicit stories in her research results, but the joke turns deadly when one story details the recent stabbing murder of a coed. Laura's close friend, Detective Derrick Pasquis from the local police, asks for her help in interviewing the prickly suspects who resist intervention from outside the campus community. Eager to search out clues, Laura ignores warning signs that playing amateur sleuth may jeopardize her newly developing romance with Guy. And of course her usual intrusive manner puts her at odds with everyone on campus - colleagues, the college administration, the head of campus security and fraternity members. Is there no one Laura can't offend in her eagerness to find the truth? The closer she gets to solving the crime, the more it appears that the past - the coed's, that of a prominent faculty member and Laura's own - is the key to the murder. Caught in an early winter blizzard, Laura must choose between wandering the mountains and freezing to death or taking her chances with a killer clever enough to make murder look like the work of an innocent student.
