A beautiful journalism student is abducted by a man with unusual and frightening expectations. While searching for her missing student, Red Solaris must contend with a university committee quarreling over the rights of the victims and those accused in sexual assault cases. And, in the midst of all this, a journalism professor brings a gun to school and shoots a colleague. Will Red’s ambition to become dean be destroyed by scandal around her? Will she and Detective Joe Morgan ever acknowledge their true feelings for each other?
The Rise of the Red Queen by Bourne Morris is the second book in the Red Solaris Mystery series. This series follows Meredith (Red) Solaris as the interim dean at Mountain West University. In this installment, one of her journalism students goes missing. She wants to work on the case, but Detective Joe Morgan thinks it is way too dangerous. We also get another detective in this story, as the missing student’s grandfather is a retired police officer.
I enjoyed this mystery. It kept my attention and I wanted to keep reading the story. The author does a nice job with building the mystery and painting viable suspects. I liked the book and I want to read the first book in the series. The setting was perfect and felt realistic.
