Quick Study

Quick Study
by Maggie Barbieri

Alison Bergeron, an English professor at a small Catholic college in the Bronx, ran afoul of the law and is performing community service. Alison is serving meals at a soup kitchen where she meets Hernan Escalante and his extended family. Alison hires Hernan and his nephew, Jose Tomasso to paint her dining room. Soon afterwards, Jose disappears and his body is found floating in the Hudson River. Alison does not feel that the police will take this crime seriously because Jose was an illegal immigrant. Alison puts on her sleuthing cap and the humorous adventure begins as she searches for the killer -- much to the consternation of her police officer boyfriend, Bobby Crawford. -- recommended by Donna G. - Eiseley and Walt Branch Libraries
