If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio. Published by Flatiron

What really happened ten years ago when one of a group of college students studying Shakespeare was killed? Oliver was arrested and convicted of the crime, but the detective who arrested him as always wondered if he got the right man. Now as Oliver is being released, detective Colbourne is about to retire and approaches Oliver, hoping to uncover the truth. What follows is the story of seven students so involved in the stage characters they portray, that fantasy and reality begin to blur, resulting in disastrous consequences. This is a literate mystery that is more subtle than most of the thrillers published today, but the reader’s patience will be rewarded by this rich and evocative story
