This debut mystery thriller of the Clarkeston Chronicles is "a terrific read-witty and sharp throughout, with characters that continue to surprise" (Frank Chadwick, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of How Dark the World Becomes). Desperate to finish his thesis on "workplace dynamics for women," assistant professor of sociology Stanley Hopkins is feeling pretty lucky when he stumbles across his old college friend, Donald Johansson. Donald has plenty of female employees. The bad news is that Donald is a porn video king. Stanley brings his wife to the seedy city of Burbank, California to help with the interviews (and to protect his reputation with the university). But nothing could prepare him for the moment a leading porn star is brutally killed in Donald's office during a party. Donald is arrested and pleads with Stanley to prove his innocence. And Stanley's problems are only compounded when playing detective for a porn king puts him on thin ice with the university trustees, gets him in hot water with the police, and puts his marriage at risk. But none of that will matter if the real murderer stops Stanley dead. Fast-paced, darkly funny, and genuinely gripping, this debut mystery features an unlikely sleuth who "is destined for a long career in solving celebrity murders. Catch him now" (Edward Larson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Summer for the Gods).
