Class Actby Jan Blankenship
SYNOPSIS: CLASS ACT is a fictional suspense thriller, written in the Hitchcock tradition of slowly building the viewer's apprehension, while engaging his innate fear. The heroine, Dr. Angie Nolan, a psychology professor, is stalked by a killer whose identity is eventually revealed through a series of demented actions. Whoever stalks her has access to her office, her classroom, and her private life. She agonizes over the question of whether the predator is a student, staff member, or friend. No aspect of her existence remains untouched, including the terror of her dreams each night.
She confides in Jake Yeager, the new Director of Security, who has demons of his own. His previous career as a US Marshall, provides him a comprehensive understanding of what the 'hunted' suffer. Years of work with the witness protection program sharpened his suspicion of everyday occurrences. In an effort to provide her protection, he unwittingly sets into motion an escalation and acceleration of violence.
Angie knows time is running out when the stalker leaves a calling card of burned animals and a whispered message on her answering machine, "I wanna touch you as you die.....I wanna touch you as you die..."
Not until the final chapters of the books, does Angie fully comprehend the complexity of the predator. By then, her life and the lives of her friends depend upon her ability to engage the arrogance of the killer long enough for help to arrive.

It's obvious that Jan Blankenship is familiar with the pyschotic mind. Artfully paced and plotted, the story mounts to a terrific suspense level. I was exhausted when I finished it! Angie and Jake are engaging characters I hope to meet again in a sequel.
