"Smart, witty, and entertaining throughout, The Fever Cabinet is a wry and irreverent look at the underbelly of academia, with a dead body thrown in for extra fun. Through Bow's colorful writing and authentic characters, we are treated to a look at the "real" Hawai'i—one tourists rarely get to experience—as well as the petty squabbles and power-struggles that erupt when academic egos collide. A terrific read!"
--Leslie Karst, author of the Sally Solari Mysteries
All Professor Molly wanted to do was teach literature. Instead she's just been named chair of her department at Mahina State University, and her department has been relocated to a run-down former asylum. She's buried in paperwork and her dean has assigned her to mentor the department's new "star", the prickly Fiona Spencer.
Just when Molly thinks she has things under control, a body turns up in Fiona's office.
Mahina's Finest seem strangely reluctant to investigate, and Molly realizes she has to work with Fiona to find the killer.
Unfortunately, the answer won't be found in the back of the textbook.
