Javiar Avila delivers a brutally accurate portrait of a serial killer in his new thriller, The Professor in Ruins. The novel depicts the life of a psychotic college professor who leads a dangerous double life, an insatiable police detective on his trail, and a young woman who could very well be the professor's next victim.

Fast-paced, gripping, and packed with suspense from start to finish, The Professor in Ruins sheds light on the dark side of academia and the sinister mind of a murdered who vows revenge on being born and sees like "as something that should never have been". In the novel, the concept of trust takes on a disturbing meaning as innocence and malice collide in a chaotic clash of passion, hope, cruelty, and deception. This chilling character study illustrates the effects of abandonment, apathy and evil on a brilliant yet unstable human being.
