The Bloodied Ivy | [Robert Goldsborough]

The Bloodied Ivy

A conservative academic, so far to the right that he thought Ronald Reagan was a pinko, Hale Markham rules Prescott University like an intellectual tyrant - right up until the morning he is found dead at the bottom of one of Prescott’s famously beautiful ravines. Every liberal on campus hated the crotchety old crank, but which one is responsible for giving Markham his final push to the right?

Publisher's Summary

When a great thinker takes a nasty tumble, Wolfe goes back to school.

A conservative academic, so far to the right that he thought Ronald Reagan was a pinko, Hale Markham rules Prescott University like an intellectual tyrant - right up until the morning he is found dead at the bottom of one of Prescott’s famously beautiful ravines. Every liberal on campus hated the crotchety old crank, but which one is responsible for giving Markham his final push to the right? 

The case so intrigues the incomparable, reclusive master detective Nero Wolfe that  he takes the unusual step of leaving the confines of his home. With man of action Archie Goodwin at his side, Wolfe examines jealous professors, a fanatical assistant, and a university president with an ego that - like the school itself - will not stop growing. Though they are far from the city, Wolfe and Goodwin will find that no back alley is as dangerous as the shadowy corridors of the Ivy League.

    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    "Not up to quality of other books in this series"

    I have truly enjoyed the other books I've read by Robert Goldsborough, who has brought the old Nero Wolfe series back to life again. But this left me wondering if he just had an off effort here. Moderately interesting in most places, the ending could have been far better. However, the narration is quite good, and that saved the book for me.
