)-- The Blue Maroon Murder ($15, ISBN: 978-1-937536-06-0, PS3613.C585395 B57 2011, 202pp)
What is happening in the land of the “Maroons,” historic Midway University on Chicago’s south side? A famous campus figure is found blue in the face after some terrible accident─or murder.
Gloria McMillan weaves an engrossing tale of the swirling ambition and intrigues that draw in Dinah Cassidy, a 30-year-old literature grad student, who recently lost her young husband in a fatal bicycle accident. After Dinah learns of a mystery document that has surfaced in the university’s rare books library, she becomes an unlikely sleuth as she begins to put two and two together. Has somebody in the English Department turned to crime?
Together with her grief counselor Harry Wilton, a retired detective, she must outwit the cleverest South Chicago denizens before more English Department faculty are blotted out.
Gloria McMillan has a Ph.D. in English and has taught at both the University of Arizona and Pima College in Tucson. She is also a produced playwright of mystery plays, including Pass the Ectoplasm.
