Living in the dour gritty underside of academia, Astor Monroe struggles with the task of establishing himself in his field. Papers, grant applications and experiments form the boundaries of his normal life. Writing mystery novels where various members of the university community find themselves in trouble serves to release the unique tension that teaching a class of a hundred disinterested students can bring.
Murder on G-Deckby Astor James Monroe
Gruesome murders, faculty politics and good old fashioned corruption form the backdrop for this crime thriller. Someone is killing the faculty at the university in novel and spectacular ways. Starting from what looks like a case of a jealous lover taking his passion into his hands, the murders evolve over time as the killer or killers becomes more adept. Are the murders connected by participation in the free wheeling 'Journey's of Self-Discovery' hosted by one of the victims or is there a deeper more sinister connection? As the killer's taste for ritualistic dismemberment becomes evident, the hunt is on to stop him, her or them before they kill again.
Still grieving from the death of his wife on the infamous highway 85, Professor Will Sharpe becomes deeply involved in the case. The first victim is a good friend, and as he identifies participants in the 'Journey's of Self-Discovery' he finds himself deep in trouble. The logical skills he practices as a scientist become critical to solving the case before the murderers skip town, carrying their ill-gotten gains.
