In The Musubi Murder, new assistant professor Molly Barda is using her top-ten literature Ph.D. to teach resume-writing to business majors at remote Mahina State University, “Where Your Future Begins Tomorrow!”

Keenly aware of the brutal realities of the academic job market, Molly just wants to keep her head down and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure. Naturally she ends up getting dragged into the middle of a grisly murder case.

The Musubi Murder is a lighthearted murder mystery that affectionately portrays small-town life and big academic egos in rural Hawaii.

Frankie Bow knows academia. As they say, “You couldn’t make this stuff up!” You’ll laugh at Bow’s satirical sense of humor and the (almost) unbelievable lengths her university goes to in order to retain any breathing student.

Kathleen Kelley Reardon, author of Shadow Campus and several bestselling business books.
