More attacks on professors follow, the only connection a curious symbol at each of the crime scenes. Putting her scholarly skills to the test, Lila gathers evidence, but her search is complicated by an unexpected nemesis, a suspicious investigator, and an ominous secret society. Rather than earning an “A” for effort, she receives a threat featuring the mysterious emblem and must act quickly to avoid failing her assignment…and becoming the next victim.
When summoned by the department chair, one shows up on time. I hurried past the row of faculty mailboxes with minutes to spare and greeted Millicent Quayle, a squarish middle-aged woman whose dull brown hair perfectly matched her suit. As executive assistant, Millicent presided over the front desk that guarded our leader's inner sanctum. She was practically humming with efficiency as her fingers flew over the keyboard, and I stood quietly until she mustered up the will to drag her attention away from the computer screen.
I picked up my bag, turned off the bulb and pulled the door shut behind me, noticing that there was light spilling into the hallway through the half-open door to the next room.
That light had not been on before.
Was someone else down here?

This week's BBH question from Vicki Lee @VLZBooks.com:
Do you believe audio books are the future and why do believe?
If we're talking audio will dominate the book world and make print and e-books obsolete, no I do not believe that. Many people predicted that ebooks would be the death of print, but that hasn't turned out to be true either. Each media in which a book appears (print, ebook, audio, video, etc.) brings something unique to the table.
Sometimes there's just nothing like holding a physical book (aka 'bookbooks') with a glass of my favorite cold beverage (or cup of my favorite hot beverage), putting up my feet and getting lost in the pages.
I love my ereader because it allows me to store a ton of books. Seriously, if I had to have physical copies of each book in the house, they could probably be stacked from floor to ceiling and cover every inch of available wall space in one of our rooms.
Video books (movies, etc.) have the added benefit of a visual as well as an audio component. Sound and visual effects can be powerful conveyors of a book's message.
