A forbidden kiss. A death in plain sight. And the faculty meeting’s just begun.  When the lecherous Kent Lovely, Mahina State University’s one-man hostile work environment, collapses into the haupia cheesecake, the Student Retention Office’s summer retreat goes from dull to disastrous. Now Professor Molly Barda has to fight to keep an innocent out of prison—and herself off the unemployment line.


Encircle Publications and cover designer Deirdre Wait, the team behind the cover of The Musubi Murder, have done it again. The cover for The Case of the Defuct Adjunct features eye-candy colors, a clean and lighthearted aesthetic, and a hint of foul play.

We wanted a set of covers that were strongly branded, so that the reader could see right away that they were part of a series. At the same time, we wanted each cover to showcase a unique element of the story, and to stand on its own.
