Publisher's Summary

Jenna James’ life has been smooth-sailing since she left the high-powered law firm of Marbury Marfan. She’s happily ensconced as a professor at a prestigious law school, where she’s well liked by her students, coupled up with a handsome colleague, and on track for tenure. But things take a shocking turn one morning when a student, Primo, comes to Jenna’s office seeking her advice about a treasure map he recently inherited. When Primo turns up dead and Jenna is suddenly the prime suspect in a murder investigation, everyone turns on her. Desperate for help, she calls on two old friends: Robert Tarza, her old law partner from Marbury Marfan, and Oscar Quesana, an odd-duck solo practitioner. The three race to save Jenna’s career - and perhaps her life - in this whip-smart thriller of treasure maps, murder, and law school politics.

Disaster on Campus

And it wasn't the murder either. The first book in this series, Death On A High Floor, was clever, witty, had excellent courtroom intrigue, great characters and was brilliantly narrator. This one has not wit, no intrigue, is populated by miserable characters, (foremost the main character), and the narration is monotonous.

Jen is no longer the brilliant and funny protege, but a stodgy, hyper- sensitive law professor with no friends and no life. Robert is still a snob, but with no sense of humor. Oscar is the only saving grace.

Don't bother with this one.
