The TruantsThe Truants by Kate Weinberg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Truants is a swift read with some fine writing describing a college foursome, their overlapping loves, and an admired professor who teaches and confounds using Agatha Christie's novels in a class called "Murdered by the Campus." A puzzling death of one of the four tosses them into a storm of dissention. Suicide or accident or murder? An interlude on an Italian island raises the fear level. There's even something nasty going on in the protagonist's father's garden shed. The dialogue is believable. I found it one of the few books capable of holding my attention in pandemic quarantine.
