Who is targeting Brenda’s college students?
Brenda Contay used to be a local Detroit celebrity. She covered gruesome stories as WDIG’s Lightning Rod tabloid reporter, but she hated the violence and sensationalism. That’s why Brenda is happy to leave crime reporting to teach journalism at her alma mater, Davison Polytechnical University. Except murder and mayhem have followed her to campus.
There’s only one point of connection to the murders: Brenda’s bright, beautiful student, Clara Fiore.
In this dark psychological mystery, multiple points of view work to peel back the layers concealing betrayal and manipulation. Brenda Contay will need all the help she can get to save her favorite student. But even if she succeeds, how will Clara Fiore ever be able to live with the awful truth?
"Loved this mystery suspense novel. I will recommend this book to others and will look forward to more Brenda Contay adventures. I give this book 5 stars."
“Mr. Knister weaves a tight, nail-biting tale. I loved Brenda’s rebellious spirit and willingness to do whatever it takes to expose the truth. Though the beginning is a bit slow, once you settle in to the middle, the book takes off like a bullet and the action is non-stop. A must read for all thriller and suspense lovers.”
“I couldn’t put this book down and I HIGHLY recommend it. Fun, fast read that you won't be able to put down!”
