A star professor at a leading medical research institute accuses a colleague of drugging and sexually assaulting a student. Department chair Brad Parker and university detective Karen Richmond join forces to investigate, but their efforts are stymied when the victim can’t remember what happened. Then her memory begins to return—and she’s brutally raped and murdered. The conclusion seems obvious, but in the absence of forensic evidence, the police hit a stone wall. Until Brad and Karen’s inquiries take an unexpected turn that threatens their own lives and exposes a cover-up at the highest levels of the university.
A riveting read and a frightening look at the culture that promotes sexual misconduct in academic life.
