Death without tenure
"Fans of academic mysteries will savor this one."—Library Journal
Karen Pelletier is about to realize her dream. After six years in the English Department at New England's exclusive Enfield College, she is up for a tenured position. But when her rival for the one available tenured spot is found dead from an overdose of Peyote buttons, Karen is first on the list of suspects. Now a homicide cop with a grudge against Lieutenant Charlie Piotrowski, the love of Karen's life, is breathing down her neck.
On campus, political passions rage, inflamed by the politically-correct English Department chair and by the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Whiteness Studies. Two of Karen's favorite students are caught up in the furor.
Will Karen be able to survive the investigation, protect her students, and find a permanent niche in the world of academe, all without her beloved Charlie, now serving with the National Guard in Iraq?

Professor Karen Pelletier is up for tenure in the English department at New England's exclusive Enfield College. Then her rival for the one tenured spot, Professor Joseph Lone Wolf, whose ethnicity gives him minority-preference status, is found dead. Karen, first on the list of suspects, is harassed by a homicide cop with a grudge against Karen's boyfriend, Lieutenant Charlie Piotrowski. Meanwhile, political passions rage on campus, and two of Karen's favorite students—Khalida Ahmed, a hijab-wearing Muslim, and Hank Brody, a coal-miner's son on full scholarship—are caught up in the furor.
Without the presence of her beloved Charlie, now serving in Iraq, will Karen be able to survive the investigation, protect her students, and find a permanent niche in the world of academia? And what if the killer feels the need to strike again?
