The Campus Murders (1969)

Death goes to college. The co-ed missing from Tisquanto State was the daughter of Governor Sam Holland's rival for re-election -- and best friend. But she was more than that. She was Laura Thornton, a human being -- somehow the pawn and victim of angry student upheavals not even the governor understood...
Who was behind the terror that had found a focus in Laura's disappearance? Who was inciting Tisquanto's protests and riots -- a madcap prankster, an earnest reformer ... or a conspiracy sworn to the college's destruction?
It was a case for Mike McCall, the governor's special assistant, a two-fisted troubleshooter who finds his crimes in the crises of modern America ... Mike McCall, who would find on Tisquanto's campus not only the raging hatreds of rebelling youth -- but murder
