The Professor presses his palm against her flank, the warmth of her blood, hotter than her skin. Hot, like the life force that he has claimed. The power over life and death is the ultimate thrill.

Someone is murdering women on college campuses. Agent Mick O'Shaughnessy's mission is simple: stop the killer. Following every lead, he meets Meg, the faculty advisor for one of the victims, who can help him track the killer through her campus connections.

Meg Connelly is focused on getting her master's degree to show her estranged family she doesn't need anybody's help to succeed. There's something about Mick she can't resist, but the last time she let someone get close to her, it cost her everything.

As the investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But Mick's interest in Meg doesn't just endanger her heart - it puts her in the sights of the killer.

Once he gets her alone, he can take all the time he needs....

    " Loved this book, the subject doesn't sound that interesting but I found it hard to put down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stasha | 2/12/2014

    " This is an interesting tale if you like to read about the history of something. It is not a fast read, but the relationship of the Professor and the Madman is intriguing. I read it years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison W. | 2/2/2014

    " This was surprisingly difficult to put down. The process of how the OED was created was fascinating and the story about one of its major contributors made for a very interesting read. This story of Dr. Minor's magnificent contributions to the creation of the OED serves as a shining example of the contributions that even extremely mentally ill individuals can make to society when they are allowed the opportunity to channel their interests and talents into constructive pursuits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bebe Burnside | 1/30/2014

    " A most interesting look at the creation of The Oxford English Dictionary. I was amazed to learn that Shakesphere did not have use of a dictionary as it had not been created when he wrote. The story of Dr. William Chester Minor's madness and yet his vast contributions was enlightening. Highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toby | 1/19/2014

    " I've had this book on my shelf for a long time, being a bit of a logophile myself, but never started it until I found it on audio. The voice is perfect & the story is thoroughly researched, compellingly told, amazing and true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 1/7/2014

    " Book #20 for 2011 - I enjoyed this telling of the making of the Oxford English Dictionary. The "professor" is James Murray who discovered that one man, the "madman" Dr. W.C. Minor, had submitted more than ten thousand definitions for the dictionary. There is a lot of technical speak on how the dictionary was made which got a little tedious at times but the relationship which ensued between the two men is truly fascinating! I would recommend this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Cavin | 1/3/2014

    " I loved this book, not only for the wonderful history of the Dictionary, but also because of the fabulous portrayal of the key characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona Mclaughlin | 12/19/2013

    " Just started reading this yesterday. I'm getting caught up in the definitions that preface each chapter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annaka | 12/4/2013

    " I expected this story to grab me far more than it did. The writing was confusing and jumped around in time far too often. Also, the author had issues with jumping into the present tense from time to time, a big no-no in history writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William Herbst | 10/13/2013

    " Bizarre tale of a psychopathic contributor to the OED. Liked the behind the scenes OED stuff more than the murder story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 10/12/2013

    " This book could have been a fascinating magazine article, but was bloated and too excited about uninteresting tangents (in the purplest of prose) at its full length. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathie huelsbeck | 9/30/2013

    " Well, I finished this book and while it's something I would never have read on my own (I read it for my book club) I did enjoy it, although some parts were kind of boring to me, towards the end of the book it got much more interesting and then I enjoyed it. It is an amazing story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Holmes | 8/21/2013

    " If you love reading and words, you'll find this fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shyla | 5/22/2013

    " Audiobook. 3.5 stars. The story of the dictionary is the more interesting part, but the story of the madman definitely adds to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margot Jennifer | 5/12/2013

    " Um, no. However it gets two stars due to the fact that I learned something from it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake Charlton | 5/2/2013

    " academic, slighly stodgy, and yet vibrantly alive. everything a logphile could want. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Kim | 12/24/2012

    " Who knew that a book about the creation of a dictionary could be so fascinating? I could not put this book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kishwar | 6/7/2012

    " i really want to give this 3.5 stars - didn't quite make it to 4 but I really did enjoy reading it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cate | 5/28/2012

    " Although interesting, this story is somewhat anticlimactic and the way it is told emphasizes that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bluern | 3/13/2012

    " Fascinating and pitiful story. My heart goes out to the madman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennie | 1/23/2012

    " Thoroughly enjoyed, but it's been too long since I read this for me to give it a comprehensive review. "
