Description
Alex Shipley was part of a special night class taught by Richard Aldiss, a renowned literature professor—and a convicted murderer—in this devious second novel from the author of Obedience. Lecturing a handpicked group of nine students from a video feed in his prison cell, the professor spoke only of one novel by a famously reclusive author, and he challenged the class to solve the mystery of that writer's identity once and for all. Now, 15 years later, Alex is a Harvard professor who made her name as a member of that class, and as the woman who helped set Richard Aldiss free. But can she use what Aldiss taught her to stop a killer, now that her fellow alums are being murdered one by one?

"The self-reflective process of literary criticism known as 'deconstructing the text' becomes a diabolical game of murder in Dominance, an academic mystery by Will Lavender that gleefully illustrates the dangers of losing yourself in a book."—NYTBR

"Mr. Lavender should be able to write his third, fourth and fifth puzzle-crazy potboilers on the visceral strength of the first two.... Dominance is quick and complicated, in a wishfully Da Vinci Code way. But it is also very narrow, ŕ la Agatha Christie.... Part of Mr. Lavender's sleight of hand involves flattering the reader's keen intelligence.... His book is tightly edited, with a lot of choppy leaps between 1994 and the present, and with a lot of white space (ŕ la James Patterson) to accompany them. And he writes with real enthusiasm."—NYTimes
