Mystery with a Message!

Chain thinking A Shep Harrington SmallTown Mystery

Elliott Light “Entertaining and enlightening.”

  • BookliST

“Within this mystery, Elliott Light’s reluctant but interesting detective, Shep Harrington, makes his own case for the need to break ‘chain thinking’ and morally look at an important topic for discussion: the way we treat our fellow creatures.” —nEvada BaRR, BEstsEllinG mystERy authoR and onE oF thE most acclaimEd mystERy wRitERs oF ouR timE” (WaShingTon poST)

“The implicit argument for animal rights should elevate the profile of this one.” —PuBlishERs wEEkly

“Elliott Light writes with an elegance that most of us can only manage by quoting others. Luckily, I’m a lot funnier than he is, or I’d have to give up this whole mystery novel thing and take up upholstery. I hadn’t read his previous Shep Harrington novel, but now I’ll have to go back and start from the beginning. Elliott, you’ve gained a fan.” —JEFFREy cohEn, authoR oF thE aaron TuCker and douBle FeaTure mystERy sERiEs

“Filled with humor and wit, it’s a winning mystery with a conscience thrown in as a bonus.” JanuaRy maGazinE (cindy chow)

Excesses in the Pursuit of Truth and Tenure

Kenneth Lasson

“With a healthy dose of humor and awareness of his critics, Lasson explores the excesses in higher education and encourages a return to common sense in the Academy. Scholarly in format and style, this study belongs in education collections of academic and larger public libraries, and in libraries where patrons seek chronicled influences in educational reform and the state of American education. Small public libraries wanting a work to reach the average person can add this with comfort.” liBRaRy JouRnal

“Kenneth Lasson is that rare bird: a law professor who writes well and amusingly. He does it delightfully and delightedly, relishing the howls of protest from those on the receiving end.” —BaltimoRE sun

“Lasson’s book is chock full of evidence that things have gone badly awry [in America’s system of higher education]. Even if Lasson doesn’t have a solution at hand—and I don’t think anyone does—he has done a superb job of identifying the problem. His witty and engrossing book is must reading for everyone concerned about higher education.” —John lockE sociEty REviEw (GEoRGE lEEF, diREctoR oF thE PoPE cEntER FoR hiGhER Education Policy)
