Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

The Killing Lessons

The Killing Lessons

Book Review
The novel starts with a bang and never lets up. Valerie Hart, the protagonist, is severely flawed and operates outside of the rules for a San Francisco homicide detective; yet her determination to bring justice to victims is never in doubt. Saul Black’s novel moves forward at breakneck speed to the inevitable showdown between good and evil. Is the ending a surprise? No. But the journey and the characters allow readers the opportunity to see the gray area that defines humanity, for no one is ever all good or all evil.
