The more he questions, the more dangerous the threats against him become.
About the book:
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...?
With a PhD in English literature (Renaissance), Donn Taylor taught literature for 18 years at two liberal arts colleges. Now retired, he has published suspense novels, mysteries, and poetry. His historical novel Lightning on a Quiet Night was a finalist for the 2015 Selah Awards. He is a frequent speaker at writers' conferences. In a prior incarnation, he led an Infantry rifle platoon in the Korean War, served with Army aviation in Vietnam, and worked with air reconnaissance in Europe and Asia. He now lives in the woods near Houston, TX, where he writes fiction, poetry, and essays on current topics.
"Murder in Disguise" is the third book in Donn Taylor's Preston Barclay series and it is another great story! Professor Barclay finds himself in the midst of an issue once again when the department chair at the university is found dead and it is determined to be a suicide. However, this does not sit well with Barclay as there are too many questions and too many things that would lead him to believe that he could never have done this. As he questions and looks into this, along with help, he finds himself in increasing danger himself and on the outs with other individuals. Donn Taylor has a great style of writing as it is easy to get drawn into the story, the mystery of it, but also the romance that is sprinkled in as well. I really enjoyed this addition to the Preston Barclay series and look forward to what may be written next!
