The Spire is the unabridged audiobook presentation of former trial lawyer Richard North Patterson's saga of buried crimes unearthed. Trial lawyer Mark Darrow heeds the call of his alma mater in its hour of need, becoming its new president in the wake of an embezzlement scandal that jeopardizes its continued existence. Yet returning brings back the painful memory of discovering the corpse of a black female student, followed by the arrest and life prison term of his best friend for the crime. Darrow encounters evidence that his best friend was wrongly accused--but the more he learns about the misdeeds of the past, the greater the danger to his own life! An enthralling saga that captivates the reader from the beginning to end, highly recommended. 9 CDs, 11 hours.
