Summary
Mark Darrow grew up in a small Ohio town with no advantages beyond his intelligence and athletic ability. Thanks to the intervention of Lionel Farr, a professor at Caldwell College, Darrow became a great trial lawyer. Now Farr asks his protege for a life-altering favor, a scandal has threatened Caldwell, and he wants Darrow to consider becoming its new president. Darrow accepts, but returning to his alma mater opens up old wounds. It's been sixteen years since he discovered the body of Angela Hall at the base of the bell tower known as The Spire. His best friend, Steve Tillman, was convicted of the crime. Back at Caldwell, Darrow suspects that the case against Steve left crucial unanswered questions. Darrow starts investigating, and is now certain that the real murderer is still at large. And when another mysterious death occurs, Darrow realizes that his own life is at risk
Summary
Mark Darrow returns to Caldwell College 16 years after his graduation when his mentor, Lionel Farr, brings him back to become Caldwell's president. The school is still haunted by the tragic murder of Angela Hall, an African American student who was strangled and left outside the school's landmark spire. Fresh off a football victory, Mark was the one who found Angela, and it was his best friend, Steve, who was convicted of the murder. Now Caldwell is once again facing a scandal, but Mark can't forget Angela's murder, or the nagging feeling that his friend might be innocent. As his suspicions center on a former classmate who testified against Steve, Mark finds himself falling for Farr's daughter, Taylor, the first woman he's had serious feelings for since the death of his wife two years ago
