    I received this through Giveaways.This is an intelligent, thought provoking book set on a University campus.The story revolves around the newest member of staff Allen Smythe,who is a Philosophy Professor and the death of his mentor.At times, I did find this a bit hard going hence the 3 stars but the plot is very good.I am sure anyone who has an interest in philosophy would really like this.
