Publisher Comments:

Dedicated to the study of toddlers and their development of verbal skills, the Wabash Institute should be staffed by kinder, gentler scholars, but instead is home to a nest of supremely cranky academics. When one of them is bludgeoned to death, Jeremy Cook-the Institute's premier scholar and the book's socially clueless hero-becomes the prime suspect.
