"Dying for Attention is a taut, involving mystery. Matthew "Chug" O'Malley, a former Boston columnist and television personality, only takes the substitute teacher job at nearby Prescott High so he can write a book about a year in a typical high school. But within a very short time, four of his students are shooting at him, an auburn-haired, green-eyed senior is trying to seduce him, and then the real trouble begins. First one student dies. Then a second. Next, a staff member is savagely axed to death. All the while, the killer keeps sending notes to Chug, telling him that he must write about the killings and make the killer famous--a somewhat bitter irony for Chug, who had tried to walk away from fame"-- Provided by publisher.

A super-easy read. Mystery-fluff. The author did an OK job of laying out his clues, but he's no Agatha Christie. The book was a bit raunchy for my tastes. But it held my attention and was not as bad as I expected it was going to be.

The protagonist's nickname is "Chug." If only the story went chug-chug, too. Too much exposition, too unbelievable.
