about this book: Jack McNamara, a retired cop in his sixties, recalls the interplay of love and sex and adulthood from his own distant past when he is asked to investigate the disappearance of college sophomore Emma Macaulay. He discovers that, in the course of a lifetime, the meanings attached to sex have changed profoundly and in ways that add to the uncertainty of modern life. In the case of Emma Macaulay, these still emerging sexual norms have contributed to allegations and scandal, spoiled reputations and, possibly, murder.

emerging College Sex Rules is a novella set in Fall River, Massachusetts. The story addresses issues that are currently being rigorously debated by White House policy makers, State legislatures, newspaper columnists, college administrators, and a variety of other entities. The outcome of this process will have real life consequences for us all, particularly, perhaps, for college students. Parents and grandparents of those young adults will be introduced to these important issues through the mature perspective of the story's narrator, one that may mirror their own views. Younger readers may be alerted to pending changes in sexual norms and laws.
