The University by Jeffrey Leever
Published by Capital Crime Press
ISBN 13: 978-0-9799960-6-1
At the request of Omnimystery, a PB copy was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.
  Synopsis: (taken from back of book): Ah...college life. A place for learning. Partying and dating. And murder. When investigative journalist Kevin Gibson lets his cousin, a former cop, talk him into looking into a student's disappearance at Tremont University, he gets more than he bargained for. A former student-injured in a brutal attack two years ago and in a coma-may hold a critical piece of information that can solve the mystery. Meanwhile, an attractive coed continues to hide a very dark secret.
  Tremont junior Brett Duncan is drawn into a cunning world few know exist-a conspiracy involving faculty, students and some well connected people in high places. Beneath the campus' Hallmark-card exterior lie many secrets, and a pulse-racing mystery with plenty of chills along the way.
  My Thoughts and Opinion: I will start with the positives of this book. I found it to be a quick read with page turning suspense the last 1/3 of this book. I felt that the author's writing style and the way he created the story line of suspense was quite good. However, there were quite a few things that I didn't enjoy, and this is my opinion and only my opinion, another reader might totally disagree with me. I felt that some of the sub plots appeared to be written in haste, which made the story line unbelievable and took away from the suspense. I also felt, and again this is my opinion only, that the book as a whole was unsophisticated. The overall basis of a suspenseful plot was good, however, the subplots appeared to be written with not much plausible thought. Unfortunately, this is not a book I would recommend.
