Donn Taylor in his new book, “murder mezzo forte book coverMurder Mezzo Forte” Book Two in the Preston Barclay Mystery series published by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas  gives us another adventure with Preston Barclay.

From the Back Cover:   He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations, she a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they’re probably guilty of her murder.

A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs. Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.

Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse . . .

Donn Taylor gives us another adventure with Preston Barclay and I have to say this time is even better than the last. For someone who likes his isolation Professor Barclay is involved with the murder of a colleague. What is even worse they think he might have done it. So he and Mara are looking for the real murderer. To keep their jobs with the school in addition to keep the police from arresting them they are going to find out who really did it but that person is going to do their best to stop them. This is how you say excitement! Go to the bathroom, take the phone off the hook, make a big bowl of popcorn and start early you are going to want to finish it that night. Mr. Taylor has given us a thriller that will have us reading and flipping pages as fast as we can. I am so looking forward to more from this highly talented author.
