Rafeeq O. McGiveron is a writer and educator with a knowledge of...well, writing and education, along with literature, cats, and other sundries. Holding a B.A. with Honor in English and History, an M.A. in English and History, and another M.A. in English, he spent the first 12 years of his career teaching English at places like Michigan State University, Lansing Community College, and Western Michigan University, while since the turn of the century he has focused on advising students at LCC.
As a writer, McGiveron currently may be best known for his literary criticism. In academic journals he has published some two-dozen articles on a fair range of authors, though it is his work on Ray Bradbury and Robert A. Heinlein that probably is most familiar to students. Most recently, he wrote for, collected, and edited Critical Insights: Fahrenheit 451 for Salem Press in 2013, and in 2014 he released his novel of literary fiction, Student Body.

My only criticism of the work is perhaps too much literary exposition and melodrama. To throw a little slang at Professor Rafeeq, I found Rick a little over-the-top emotionally.
It did seem to have a lot more descriptions of sexual acts than I like to read. So it seemed to me to take a long time to get to the mystery part. I am an avid reader of mystery novels. But I now realize there were many layers to the story, more than one issue to either clear up or complete. The author has written quite an intricate novel.
Ok, I am a biologist, not a writer so hopefully this is not too clumsy of a review
