This is the first of the Ben Reese mysteries. I reviewed the second, Pride and Predator, previously.
I like this author. She develops lovable characters who are not flawless, but yet are noble. Noble as in people of virtue. Although not "Christian lit", Ms Wright places these stories among people who have a Christian world view. This is refreshing. They think and act and discuss life within this context.
In Publish and Perish, Professor and college Archivist Ben Reese is pulled into investigating the death of fellow professor and good friend, Richard West. The setting and some of the conversations were very realistic to me, having been a part of a college faculty community previously.
I will definitely try to find more of the Ben Reese mysteries.
