The Professor presses his palm against her flank, the warmth of her blood, hotter than her skin. Hot, like the life force that he has claimed. The power over life and death is the ultimate thrill.
Someone is murdering women on college campuses. Agent Mick O'Shaughnessy's mission is simple: stop the killer. Following every lead, he meets Meg, the faculty advisor for one of the victims, who can help him track the killer through her campus connections.
Meg Connelly is focused on getting her master's degree to show her estranged family she doesn't need anybody's help to succeed. There's something about Mick she can't resist, but the last time she let someone get close to her, it cost her everything.
As the investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But Mick's interest in Meg doesn't just endanger her heart—it puts her in the sights of the killer.
Once he gets her alone, he can take all the time he needs....

If you like a great investigation this book is for you.If you like the deadly fear series this book is for you.
She is great she get the characters.
Ms Perkins created an engaging story that keeps the reader guessing what will happen next. The murderer is smart and creepy...a great villian to counter the hero cop. Mick is the perfect alpha male, tempered by intelligence, patience and understanding. Meg is driven to succeed, but has learned to hide her vulnerability behind a mask of polite detachment.
These two characters not only complement each other, they create enough sensual tension to ignite the pages. I screamed warnings, cheered for, and sighed with relief as Meg and Mick struggled to overcome and survive every obstacle thrown at them.
In summary, "The Professor" really pulls you in. I thoroughly enjoyed! If you like novels by Nora Roberts, Linda Howard, and Sandra Brown, you will undoubtedly enjoy The Professor, too.
Very good mystery.
I think Ms. Perkins will continue to intrigue readers. Excited for the next book!
Yes. Although a work of fiction, I am familiar with the areas of South Carolina referenced by the author. The characters feel authentic. The author's use of such intense graphic detail draws the reader into the story. Mick and Meg are likeable characters. Seeing their relationship's ups and downs carried the book. So, in spite of the rapes and murders, their relationship left me feeling happy and content about the audiobook.
I enjoyed the "pool party" at the beginning of the book. Being under the category, "Romance/Suspense," I wanted to see the SAE fraternity boy and his young GF consummate their romance in the wading pool.
She was ok. However, with the exception of Frank Muller and a few other excellent narrators, I enjoy the authors reading their own books
The Professor draws you into the South not unlike Pat Conroy ,John Grisham or James Dickey.
I hope audible adds another one of this author's books to the audible library. Some of my favorite authors are John Grisham, Elmore Leonard, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Mark Twain, Ken Follett, and others. Currently, my favorite audiobook is "Tishomingo Blues". For a while, I really enjoyed listening to "A Confederacy of Dunces." "The Old Man and The Sea" and "Great Expectations" are books I've enjoyed since HS. Full disclosure requires me to let you know I worked with Cathy over two decades ago. She is extremely intelligent, kind, and always exhibited a relentless pursuit of perfection. I like Cathy and thus this is the first book I've reviewed on Audible. I hope to write more reviews in the coming months. Audible audiobooks are one of my greatest delights.
While the story line was good, the author did not do a good job with the story ending. To me she left a lot unsaid, no real conclusion to some of the thing that happened
I like books that have a good balance of both suspense and romance, this book did not really concentrate on the romance much, just a lot of insecurity from the heroin (she was week) and begging from the hero (he was not alpha enough).
I like mysteries, classics, and good non-fiction. Much of my audible listening takes place when I am working out and sweaty, so I like good plot-driven thrillers.
No, I don't think so. Dina Pearlman is a good reader and I would try something she's narrating by another author.
She has a clear, nuanced voice that conveys emotional range.
The professor's member! I am not a prude but this little character had an enormous role. The author has lovingly described all of his throbbing, trembling, tumescence, his turgid tumidity and his tingling thumps of titillation.
At points, this narrative simply became ludicrous and I almost enjoyed its crazy predictability and cliches. But it's too juvenile to please a quasi-serious listener.
