Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440206081, Mass Market Paperback)

Skulduggery was afoot in the campus library at Midwestern University. Sinister students were razoring pages from periodicals and stealing obscure essays for their term papers. A bookish thief was making a bundle smuggling out valuable first editions for resale. And in the South Tower, a killer was stalking a coed.

Even so, Professor Beth Austin was shocked--and intrigued--to find a handsome FBI agent in the English Department. Soon they had joined forces, delving into the lives of her eccentric colleagues...and straying into the dark shadows of the groves of academe where someone's hands were stained with blood.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:12:23 -0400)

In the summer of 1864, a teen-age boy meets reporter Mark Twain in San Franciso after a murder, and agrees to help him get the story.
