Publisher Comments:

“Patterson grabs the reader by the scruff of the neck and holds him until the very last page…The Spire might just be his best to date.”—Tucson Citizen

Mark Darrow grew up in small-town Ohio with no real advantages. But thanks to Lionel Farr, a professor at a nearby college, Darrow became an excellent scholar/athlete and, later, a superb trial lawyer. Now Farr offers his protégé a job as his alma maters new president, which Darrow accepts. But being back on campus opens old wounds. Sixteen years ago, on the night of his greatest football triumph, Darrow found the body of a black female student at the base of the college bell tower, known as the Spire…

“Intriguing…we cant read fast enough to reach the finale.”

—San Francisco Chronicle

Darrows best friend was charged with the murder, and was sent to prison for life. But Darrow is about to discover that the case against his college friend left crucial questions unanswered. Despite his new obligations—and his deepening attachment to Farrs beautiful though troubled daughter—Darrow begins an inquiry into the murder and is soon convinced that the real killer is still at large…and that his own life is surely at risk.

“gripping…A page turner with multiple twists and a well-earned conclusion at once shocking and inevitable.”—Richmond Times Dispatch

 

 

Synopsis:

Mark Darrow grew up in a small Ohio town with no advantages beyond his intelligence and athletic ability. Thanks to the intervention of Lionel Farr, a professor at Caldwell College, Darrow became a great trial lawyer. Now Farr asks his protg for a life-altering favor — a scandal has threatened Caldwell, and he wants Darrow to consider becoming its new president. Darrow accepts, but returning to his alma mater opens up old wounds. It's been sixteen years since he discovered the body of Angela Hall at the base of the bell tower known as The Spire. His best friend, Steve Tillman, was convicted of the crime. Back at Caldwell, Darrow suspects that the case against Steve left crucial unanswered questions. Darrow starts investigating, and is now certain that the real murderer is still at large. And when another mysterious death occurs, Darrow realizes that his own life is at risk.

Synopsis:

Both a razor-sharp thriller and a poignant love story, this twisting tale of psychological suspense is Patterson's most compelling novel in years. Now available in a tall Premium Edition.
