Colder, With Snow: A Brenda Contay Mystery: Book 4 by Barry Knister
Who is targeting Brenda’s college students?
Brenda Contay used to be a local Detroit celebrity. She covered gruesome stories as WDIG’s Lightning Rod tabloid reporter, but she hated the violence and sensationalism. That’s why Brenda is happy to leave crime reporting to teach journalism at her alma mater, Davison Polytechnical University.
Except murder and mayhem have followed her to campus.
A Davison student is blown up while hitchhiking home for Christmas break. Three nights later, another is cut almost in half in Davison’s new student center.
Brenda feels duty-bound to stay on campus, but she has promised to travel to Florida for the break. She and her boyfriend Charlie promised to help care for Brenda’s nieces at Disneyworld, and Charlie is at last going to meet Brenda’s difficult mother. Reluctantly, she and Charlie head south, but as Christmas arrives, more death comes to Davison.
There’s only one point of connection to the murders: Brenda’s bright, beautiful student, Clara Fiore.
In this dark psychological mystery, multiple points of view work to peel back the layers concealing betrayal and manipulation. Brenda Contay will need all the help she can get to save her favorite student.
But even if she succeeds, how will Clara Fiore ever be able to live with the awful truth?
