Virgil Flowers will have to watch his back - and his mouth - as he investigates a culture war turned deadly in the latest page-turner from the master of pulse-pounding thrillers.
At the local state university, renowned Professor Quill goes to the library one night - and winds up dead. With no suspects, no prints, no murder weapon - not even a time of death - Virgil Flowers is brought in to investigate.
Flowers discovers that, prior to his death, Quill had sparked a feud between two departments at the university. Each side carries their views to extremes, and Flowers soon realises he's dealing with people who, on this particular issue, are functionally crazy.
Somewhere among this group of diametrically opposed zealots lurks a murderer. But with no leads, little evidence and the media breathing down his neck, can Flowers find him before he kills again?
