A Dangerous Thing (Carl Burns Mystery #3)

by Bill Crider

Professor Carl Burns knew the new dean wasn't going to work out when she bought the goats. And that was the least of the problems.

As if this weren't enough to contend with, Tom Henderson's fatal fall through a window definitely wasn't part of the planned curriculum. But figuring out whodunit is going to be a lot more interesting for Burns than grading papers for his developmental (read: remedial) English class.
