The Case of the Defunct Adjunct
by Frankie Bow
A really intriguing and engrossing cozy mystery…
~Mallory Heart Reviews
If you like your cozy mysteries with humor and a satisfying dose of sarcasm, Frankie Bow is your go-to author. Put Molly Barda and best friend Emma Nakamura together and you never know what can happen next.
This was a fun read from beginning to end. As a college faculty member, Bow’s description of some aspects of the academy is right on.
~Christa Reads and Writes
I like Molly and Emma. I like their senses of humor.
I’ve never visited Hawaii, but the author does an amazing job of really making me feel like I have. Her writing style clearly portrays an island dialect.
Bow has the ability to take serious subjects, but treat them with humor and fun to create an enjoyable read.

A forbidden kiss. A death in plain sight. And the faculty meeting’s just begun.
Forced to attend the Student Retention Office’s summer retreat, Professor Molly Barda brings her game of buzzword bingo to fend off boredom. But when the lecherous Kent Lovely, Mahina State’s one-man hostile work environment, collapses face-first into his haupia cheesecake, the afternoon goes from dull to disastrous. Now Molly has to fight to keep an innocent out of prison—and herself off the unemployment line.
The Case of the Defunct Adjunct is the spoiler-free prequel to the Molly Barda mysteries, a cozy mystery series set in remote Mahina, Hawaii. If you like Dorothy Parker, Sarah Caudwell, P.G. Wodehouse, or E.F. Benson’s Mapp and Lucia stories, you’ll enjoy this tale of passion, pilferage, and petty politics.
About The Author
Like Molly Barda, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, a loving family, and a perfectly nice office chair. She believes if life isn’t fair, at least it can be entertaining.
In addition to writing murder mysteries, she publishes in scholarly journals under her real name. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.
