A look at the University lifestyle and the dangers of drugs, money, peer pressure and some lecturer’s attitudes and duplicity. This book tells of the deceptive bloody trail that led law-enforcement officers investigating the murders in a merry-go-round, they were being maneuvered like puppets, only responding to what and where the puppeteer wanted them to go and do.
Mesmerizing is what I would say to describe this book, the law enforcers I find were too easily led in the wrong direction, they were too slow and almost too late in finding the killer. It was left up to Dr. O'Leary with the help of her student assistant Nathan to follow the clues although they themselves were being led in a merry chase, they were all under the puppeteer’s string, they could not discern the truth or even interpret the clues before them.
The character, that of the psychotic genius, the mastermind behind the murders was impressive and strong, the storyline was thought-provoking, interesting with an intriguing puzzle twist, nicely done.
