I finished 'Eloquent Blood' with one final shout of laughter over the letter written by Dr Fairchild Bender, president, to alumni and other financial 'friends' of Midfield College, explaining recent chilling events on campus and their consequences, and asking in a final paragraph for donations to the Capital Fund Campaign . The murder mystery in Audrey Lavin's book has appropriate frightful academic dimensions. Mary Beth Goldberg, , a fairly new professor in the English Department , is the discerning sleuth and narrator who gives us plenty of information in an understated way to chuckle about throughout ---faculty meetings, displays of one upmanship, pompous discourse, administrative nervousness over bad publicity, and all the rest. This a clever and witty book , fun to read and well-written. Frederica Kaven, retired . Ithaca College Writing Department
