Tom Evers, a young college professor, reluctantly becomes involved in a desperate search for a vicious serial killer who murders college women for sexual gratification. During his investigation, he comes to the disturbing realization that he and his wife may be in danger, and that the killer may be a member of the faculty. As an insider who is well known on campus, Tom uncovers information that is not available to the police. This eventually enables him to identify the murderer.

Blood Stained Ivory will have a special appeal for those who appreciate the unusual and the unexpected. The setting adds an extra dimension. The portrayal of the university in remarkably realistic detail and the strong characterization provide a view of the ivory tower from a unique perspective. The plot explores several important social issues, and the good natured banter which appears in the dialogue introduces some comic relief into an otherwise grim tale.
