Sandra Robbins. Mountain Peril. New York: Steeple Hill Books, 2010.

When a Webster University student creates a gruesome website detailing the exploits of a fictitious murderer, Dean of Students Danielle Tyler is shocked and appalled. The site is bringing the wrong kind of publicity to Webster U, but it’s particularly upsetting to Dean Tyler because the murder scene on the site reminds her of the murder of her college roommate ten years earlier.

The student who created the site sees no harm in what he’s done–until the girl who posed as the corpse is murdered.  The website creator is an obvious suspect, but so is a staff member who was a student at the time of the first murder.  Dean Tyler begins to question what she really knows about the people at Webster who have been so good to her; she turns to the detective investigating the case for reassurance and safety.  Detective Jack Denton’s investigation is stirring things up and not everyone is happy about that.   As Jack’s interest in Dean Tyler becomes obvious, it forces the murderer to take action that pushes the novel to its conclusion.
