Like New. 0684196565 From Publishers Weekly Oleksiw follows up Murder in Mellingham with another mystery set in the small Massachusetts town. Hank Vinnio, a work-study student at the Massasoit College of Art, is murdered; his body, with his throat cut, is found beneath a toppled shelf of art supplies. Medical evidence determines that the victim's throat was cut after he was knocked unconscious, leading police chief Joe Silva to believe the murder was one of opportunity, not plan. While investigating the school's staff, faculty and student body, Silva uncovers assorted tangled secrets that connect both the wife of the chairman of the painting department and the dour school secretary to the victim. Deftly portraying her eccentric, yet believable, characters from among the school's faculty and staff, Oleksiw re-creates an authentic small-town atmosphere, but her plot, with unconvincing red herrings and unprepared-for resolution, is a disappointment. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. Book Description Preston Mattson has spent his career teaching in an out of the way school, never having to confront his failures until adult student Hank Vinnio shoulders his way onto campus, disrupting classes and everything else with his sly and cynical style. Mattson and a lot of others are relieved when Vinnio is found dead-until Chief of Police Joe Silva begins investigating. Soon the college doesn't feel very safe, and both teachers and students begin to worry about what Silva is finding out. Joe Silva brings his astute and likable style to another murder in Mellingham, pulling aside complacency and shame as he zeroes in on a murderer. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
