At the world’s most exclusive law school, there’s a secret society rumored to catapult its members to fame and fortune. Everyone is dying to get in…

Jeremy Davis is the rising star of his first-year class. He’s got a plum job with the best professor on campus. He’s caught the eye of a dazzling Rhodes scholar named Daphne. But something dark is stirring behind the ivy. When a mysterious club promises success beyond his wildest dreams, Jeremy uncovers a macabre secret older than the university itself. In a race against time, Jeremy must stop an ancient ritual that will sacrifice the lives of those he loves most and blur the lines between good and evil.

In this extraordinary debut thriller, Danny Tobey offers a fascinating glimpse into the rarefied world of an elite New England school and the unthinkable dangers that lie within its gates. He deftly weaves a tale of primeval secrets and betrayal into an ingenious brain teaser that will keep readers up late into the night.

Packed with enigmatic professors, secret codes, hidden tunnels, and sinister villains, The Faculty Club establishes Danny Tobey as this season’s most thrilling new author.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 2/19/2014

    " WOW!!! Yes, it deserves the uppercase and the exclamation points. I am absolutely in love with Danny's writing. The Faculty Club has a little bit of everything. If you like thrillers, you will love this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy S | 2/13/2014

    " A page turner about a secret society on a college campus. Although a bit far fetched, the premise was interesting and the motivation of the "members" presumably honorable, though totally misguided and pretty horrific. I liked the main character, Jeremy, and his determination to find answers to the mystery he found himself drawn into. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynne | 2/7/2014

    " I spent most of the last half of the book debating whether or not I was going to finish it. Always the sign of a good booki. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/3/2014

    " It was interesting. Not great, but not totally sucky either. It would have been nice to find out what happened to Miles and to see what led up to Chances end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Thomas | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent and thrilling story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 1/25/2014

    " What distinguishes The Faculty Club from other thrillers is the depth of characterization and the philosophical questions. It challenges as it entertains. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen Dilbeck | 1/19/2014

    " A little slow to start off, but the last 1/2 of the book- awesome. I didn't want to put it down! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caitlin | 1/10/2014

    " This was so mediocre that it doesn't even qualify as terrible. I'm not sure how this author managed to screw up a story with an elite school and a super secret club, but he did. Just awful. Don't bother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 1/7/2014

    " I really liked this book. I think it needs its own genre, though. It kept my interest throughout. The narrative was original, intelligent and fresh. Although the story line was a bit far fetched --Indiana Jones, did someone say?--it totally entertained. I look forward to Mr. Tobey's future works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandon Cahall | 12/31/2013

    " Ehh. 2.5 quick and fun "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine Gilbert | 12/21/2013

    " Seriously? Can't believe I finished this crock! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tobi | 12/10/2013

    " The idea was great but it was a little thin in the details. I would have liked for it to be more in depth but it was a fun read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marti | 12/9/2013

    " hmm. Confusion. law school angst. outsider at ivy league. sci-fi body snatchers? Yeah, it doesn't quite work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Henry Klapholz | 9/30/2013

    " This is one terrific novel. I simply could not put it down. Surprises, mystery, vivid portrayals....I kept trying to second guess what would happen next ... This could one heck of a thriller movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ihancock | 9/22/2013

    " A fun read but not overly deep. The secret was very far fetched and the entire book was not developed enough to even give the slim premise something to hang on. However, it was a quick read from the library and enjoyable. I wouldn't buy it thought. Grab it from the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 7/21/2013

    " At the end I was looking for more of this story. Fiction based on the skull and cross bones society of Yale U. Sometimes creepy, but that just added to this story. Good for a first novel and recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nightraine | 1/2/2013

    " this book was a pretty good read, however, the writer had a bit of a juvenile voice in his narrative. It was a college age character, but he wound like a teenager. All in all, the story was not bad. It was on a supernatural side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thayer Berlyn | 10/15/2012

    " This book was kind of a rainy day read for me. Not my usual fare, but I wanted something a little different. I was not disappointed. Good, fast pace suspense with a weave of wit, introspection and interesting interactions between characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glissbliss | 5/29/2012

    " Fairly entertaining but really jumped the shark in a key plot element. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 10/21/2011

    " I really enjoyed this quick romp through an unamed Ivy league school and all its hidden recesses, even if it wasn't themostspectacularthrillerever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dinamarie | 8/24/2011

    " Book started out strong and kept my interest for about 3/4 of the book and then it just seemed to lose momentum and sadly my interest. I don't know what I was expecting, but it just sort of ended a little ho hum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helane | 7/18/2011

    " I found The Faculty Club to be a fun, exciting thriller, with lots of plot twists and interesting, well-developed characters. The plot was engaging and the writing fresh. I think it will appeal to all types of readers, not just those who love thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandiigirl | 5/7/2011

    " A fairly good, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon | 3/1/2011

    " It's an odd book. It starts out like a John Grisham style legal book then branches off into Dan Brown country. I liked it, but I don't know why. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/31/2011

    " It was okay but the author kinda got crazy towards the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pj | 1/19/2011

    " Written to be a not-that-great action movie is my guess! Listened to this one on a long trip and it entertained but I wouldn't have devotged several days to reading this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glissbliss | 1/13/2011

    " Fairly entertaining but really jumped the shark in a key plot element. "

    " Lots of fun a blend of mystery, horror and fantasy. It goes down real easy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joella | 12/10/2010

    " This is the young author's first book, and hope he writes more. It was fast moving - lots of action and mystery and a touch of the supernatural, and twists and turns. And even some touches of humor in the most unexpected places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 12/6/2010

    " I really enjoyed this quick romp through an unamed Ivy league school and all its hidden recesses, even if it wasn't themostspectacularthrillerever. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M'lissa | 12/6/2010

    " The suspense and mystery drew me in, but the storyline went from semi-plusible to ridiculous

    without adequate structure or nuance to support the unbelievable occurrences. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 11/22/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book by a first-time author. We follow a first year law student at a prestigious New England school as he unlocks the secrets of an ancient club on campus. Lots of suspense and intrique as the club members try to stop him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 11/20/2010

    " I actually finished this book about a week ago and have almost forgotten it already. "
