A soft-spoken debut for Hannah Land, newcomer on the staff at Duke University, and just in time for the dinner where department head Bradley Brown drops dead--cyanide in his fruit cup. But who would want to kill such a quiet, able, nice man? Several days and only one possible motive later (plagiarism), Hannah puts together chance remarks and identifies the killer. . . . A little like fruit cup, light and agree-able, but no ruffles on the chicken leg.
