Wayne HoffmanWhile he's penned a dozen "Tom and Scott" books and nine "Paul Turner Mysteries," Zubro was also an English teacher in Illinois for 34 years and a union president for 20, before retiring in 2006. So he knows the intricate politics of school administrations: minor policy disputes that become petty wars, meddling administrators wielding undue influence, torrid affairs between staff members. But what's more interesting here than the workplace shenanigans, the murders or even the covert sexual liaisons that involve so many educators—male and female, married and single, gay and straight—is Mason himself…The murders may drive the book's action, but the affection between Tom and Scott gives Schooled in Murder the heart that makes Zubro's tales so human.
