Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fast-paced literary puzzler, Dominance is “an academic mystery that gleefully illustrates the dangers of losing yourself in a book” (The New York Times Book Review).

This clever twist on the classic locked room mystery is “The Silence of the Lambs meets And Then There Were None…a terrific premise.” (Booklist). In 1994, nine students at Jasper college in Vermont were hand-picked to join a special night class taught by infamous literature professor—and murderer—Richard Aldiss, live from a video feed in his prison cell. Twelve years earlier, Aldiss had been convicted of the murders of two female grad students whose bodies were decorated with the novels of notoriously reclusive author Paul Fallows. Even the most obsessive Fallows scholars have never seen the man. He is like a ghost.

     Professor Aldiss entreated his students to solve the Fallows riddle once and for all. But there was something more at stake: Aldiss knew that the discovery of the author’s true identity would exonerate him of the heinous crimes.

     Today, Alex Shipley is a Harvard professor who made her name as a member of the night class, and as the woman who helped set Richard Aldiss free. But when one of her fellow alums is murdered and surrounded by Fallows novels, can she use what she knows of Fallows to stop a killer—before each of her former classmates is picked off, one by one?

Synopsis:

Fifteen years ago, Alex Shipley was part of a special night class taught by Richard Aldiss, a re-nowned literature professor— and convicted murderer. Lecturing the group of nine hand-picked students from a video feed in his prison cell, the professor spoke only of one novel by a famously reclusive author, and he challenged the class to solve the mystery of that writer’s identity once and for all.

Today, Alex is a Harvard professor who made her name as a member of that class, and as the woman who helped set Richard Aldiss free. But when one of her fellow alums is murdered, can she use what she learned from Aldiss to stop a killer—before each of the night class students is picked off, one by one?

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Obedience comes a new puzzle thriller that will keep you guessing until the final terrifying moments.
