Acerca de


Dr. Sally Good, head of the English and Fine Arts Division of Hughes Community College in Texas, is forced to turn sleuth when the chairman of the Art Department turns up dead and the husband of a student the dead man had been accused of molesting becomes the prime suspect.


Adding to the small but tasty list of mysteries set on college campuses (which include Quieter Than Sleep, The Northbury Papers, and Amanda Cross: The Collected Stories) comes Murder Is an Art. In this fine novel of academe, Bill Crider introduces us to Dr. Sally Good, who heads the English and fine arts departments at Hughes Community College near the Texas Gulf Coast. It's the kind of school where the most popular classes are the ones held in conjunction with nearby prisons, but there are other advantages: the faculty can write articles on Buddy Holly for magazines like Golden Disc instead of becoming mired in pompous literary subjects.

Murder enters the campus scene when a popular art professor's death is linked to sexual shenanigans and/or Satanism. In typical genre style, it's Dr. Good and her 1950s-loving colleague Jack Neville who put aside minor things like running departments and teaching classes in order to track down the killer. Crider, who clearly knows the terrain, makes his academic community amusing as well as moving. --Dick Adler
