Review: THE GROUP by Kevin Doyle
Compelling reading from a talented author provides hours of entranced attention in this mystery plus thriller plus homicide police procedural plus character study. A wide variety of characters populate here, each more imperfect than not, rendering them so very human.
A business professor, facing the potential collapse of his marriage while simultaneously preparing for the upcoming tenure consideration in just a few months, is shocked when his ex-lover is discovered, murdered; but for Professor Ron Green, that just begins to scratch the surface of all he is yet to endure. To paraphrase 18th century Fire-breather evangelist Jonathan Edwards, Green' s existence quickly becomes akin to.that of a spider's web dangling over the open pit of Hades.
