Three strands of hair ... two drops of blood ... one thumbprint ... an embittered law professor ... a decade-old indiscretion ... an autographed Louisville Slugger - mix these all together in a stew of secrets, lies and promises kept and broken and you have the "Law School Murder", the next big media case of the moment, and the subject of Final Exam, the first of the Benjamin Lohmeier series of legal thrillers.
Shortly after New Years, the shattered body of Professor Daniel Greenfield is found on the floor of his office at the almost-deserted Chicago College of Law. The police question and ultimately charge one of Greenfield's former students, Megan Rand, now living a quiet life as a mother and appellate court clerk. She calls her friend, Benjamin Lohmeier, a former Chicago prosecutor now stuck in a repetitive civil practice out in the suburbs, and begs for help. With the media circus swirling around him, Ben unravels old mysteries and confronts unseen enemies as he searches for Daniel Greenfield's killer. Was it a spouse bent on revenge? A colleague harboring long-held resentments? Another of Greenfield's students? Or could it even have been Megan herself, fueled by a secret of her own?
