Death Without Tenure, by Joanne Dobson
Pretty solid and entertaining academic murder mystery. Two English professors are up for one tenure track position- one is murdered. The unraveling of the murder pokes at the politically correct offerings at universities, and has a pretty funny twist- nice, fast, well plotted read.
(Unfortunately, it strikes a little too close to reality, what with the up-for-tenure professor in Alabama who just killed 3 of her colleagues, and injured 3 more.)
