The Spire Author:Richard North Patterson A young college president struggles to save his once prestigious alma mater, Caldwell College, from a financial scandal which may be linked to the murder of a student, some seventeen years previously.

But in 1993, the body of Angela Hall, a black student, was found at the foot of the Spire.
