Mike Adams thought Student Governments everywhere were funny. That is, until someone wanted him dead. Sixteen years after he graduated from college, Mike wrote a satire of college life that became a best-seller and is now set to become a movie. Not everyone liked what he wrote. As people get hurt and eerie messages are left behind, Mike finds himself targeted at his high school reunion. Now, he must ask some difficult questions. What did he write that enraged this attacker? Who in his past would do this? And does any of this have to do with the secret society known only as The Circle?
For a first-time novel, not bad.
The story goes off on some tangents at times, and the writing can be clunky at times. But the characters are interesting and the premise unique. Moreover, the central mystery keeps you guessing right up until the show-stopping trial at the end of the book. The best part of the novel is the "excerpts" of the book-within-the-book that are interwoven into the story to reveal just how serious some people take their University.
