Every body knew that Ralph Neufeld used to be a cautious younger chemist, specifically his professor, Lou Brade. that is why Ralph's unintentional death as a result of a confusion of chemical substances struck Brade as hugely not going. The police agreed.

Someone on campus had switched bottles on bad Ralph and the end result was once as lethal as were deliberate. the difficulty was once all of the correct suspects have been within the unsuitable locations whilst it happened...all the inaccurate suspects had the proper motives...and the single individual such a lot certified to unravel the crime was once already being referred to as the killer!
