Certainly things couldnt be much better for Preston H.

Mattson, chairman of the painting department, as the students prepare for a show honoring his work. It hardly matters that Mattsons work is mediocre. As long as he can play the role of expert and get the students to do his bidding, Mattson is satisfied. But there are potential problems at Massasoit, too. Work-study student Hank Vinnio is a surprisingly gifted artist. His talent may be enough to threaten Preston Mattsons sense of superiority.

New to the area and without close friends, Vinnio has at least one enemy and perhaps more. Another member of the college community sows unrest and fear just by his presence. Chickie Morelli appears to be indifferent to the effect he has on people. He lingers contentedly on the sidelines, watching and waiting. In town, sculptor Henry Muir has been known for years for his disdain for some of the local artists.

Now their mutual animosity moves toward a crisis. When someone at the college is murdered, Chief of Police Joe Silva must study both art and diplomacy as he searches for the killer in a crime that envelops both town and gown. Double Take continues the story of a small coastal village in New England where people have their own ways of coping with life and its challenges, relying always on their idiosyncratic community of friends and family.
