    Superintendent Dalziel had a somewhat cynical view of what college administrations spent his taxes on. But when he and that over-educated Sergeant of his, Pascoe, were sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn't reckoned on a rash of fresh killings. While Pascoe rekindled an old flame on the staff, protesting students identified Dalziel as a 'fascist pig'. The Superintendent smiled with satisfaction...if that's how they wanted to play it.

    This is not a review of the book, but rather the reader. He's awful. His voice is tinny and hard to understand and his manner of speaking, or reading, is rhythmic and shrill. I kept trying to get around it, but it was no use. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    Excellent story. I didn't solve the mystery and that's unusual. The main character is a "cutter," which is an interesting story in and of itself. I thought the characters were real and the depiction of life in a small Missouri town was dead on. This book kept me interested right up to the end.
